2oz Spooks?

Rate this topic

There seems to be a large gap in the commonly available sizes of this lure. I can get all the 1oz I could want, I can get bushels of 2.75-3.25, but the only 2oz I see is a wood offering from 24/7, and it sounds more like a spook shaped pencil popper. Am I missing one?

I make a wooden spook that weighs in at 1.6 oz...there is a gap in the commercial size range.  Getting the size and weight balance correct to walk the dog is the reason I think why there are not more sizes out there.  This which is why I created this one.

NorCalKat has a 2.2 oz 7.25" spook called a HiredGunz. He has another one at same length but smaller diameter weighs 1.75oz. 

 

I suggest make own from western red cedar dowels in 3/4" diameter. Try one at 7" and one at 9"? Just round off the ends, maybe a 1" taper on tail, or not. Hot dog or broom stick shape in other words no shaping involved. Weight so sits a bit tail down. Screw eyes, seal the wood with epoxy and glue in weights at same time, krylon it white and don't bother with another coat of epoxy. Canal rig a single belly hook.  go fishing.

Love the Jigsmith. It was the answer I was looking for when I originally pondered OP’s same question a couple years back.

It's no Afterhours for sure but this is a decent plastic spook:  Strike King KVD Mega Dawg Topwater Walker is a 6 inch, 2 ounce topwater walker

That's right, I remember seeing that. I bought a KVD branded fillet knife in a pinch, and it was kind of junk, so I was skeptical.

Oh, and available at CMS, it seems. I'll see if I can swing by next time I'm in the neighborhood.

Good action-feels like decent quality. No confirmation on wire thru or not. Have not had a chance to test with catches yet

In addition, Jigman's 2 1/4oz Jig Walker is awesome!  Not sure if he is still building to sell anymore.  Might be able to scare one up in the WTB Plugs forum.
