DIY ARTISTS, DEAD BOYS & THEIR FATHERS, & GENERAL FANS OF SPOOKS, SUB SURFACE GLIDERS & STICK BAITS....

 

You are all invited to begin the next super plug thread. Share your stories on these iconic plugs. Share your plug design ideas. Share your tactical advice. Share your pictures. But BEWARE. It is ALL-HALLOWS EVE my Surf Fishing friends.....

 

A fitting time to start such a super thread. I'll begin with Chapter 1. I'm holding the other Chapters back in the hopes that many experts & fans get us started PROPERLY. 

 

And just to be clear: Yes. Spooks are among the deadliest plugs made & yes...ahhhahahaha. They work at night. They work in back estuaries. They work on the open beach. So these plugs are particularly coveted....so BEWARE. BE CAREFUL. Don't carry more than 1 at any time & especially not at night.....

 

Booohaooohahaha & Happy Halloween my friends...Now let the fun begin. Who among you even knows what a SPOOK is??? HMMMM???

Not a custom wood plug builder....But I've been developing a ground up spook for the past year.....

Big and heavy....through wired.....Walks wide on the surface....and when ripped followed by a steady retrieve works like a super strike darter.

I just literally received the first non 3d printed prototype after a few adjustments in the mail today...Fingers crossed that it functions the same as the model plug.   It sits at the same angle in the water.....feels less buoyant due to the added reinforcement internally (entire internal structure is honeycomb pc. Which I hope isn't the case and it swims.

 

The yum Money Hound....was a big hunk of soft plastic like a zaraspook....and it swam as well as it walked.....That's what I was going for with my design...only approaching 4 ounces and big.....Doc sized.

 

Tatoo made some great spooks.....Tuna even loved em as they skipped well.

 

Picked up my first mongo Afterhours spook the other day.....haven't tossed it...but love his other stuff.

 

Something about a big spook just draws strikes.....and when silent or noisey pencils or poppers don't draw strikes.....I've had luck with the big dog walkers.

 

One negative is depending on design....casting distance isn't all that great.  Which isn't a big deal...but they work awesomely in skinny water

Great thread!   Love spooks and sammy style lures, so much that i have a bunch of high end poppers that gathered dust this year as i would rather "walk that dog" all day
