Heddon Super Spook Jr. “How To” + Review [Top 3 Pros & Cons]


Looking for a topwater lure that produces big fish?

Want to know how to “walk-the-dog” to generate strikes?

One of my favorite topwater lures to use inshore is the Heddon Super Spook Jr.

This is a good “walk-the-dog” (side to side) motion topwater lure with an attractive profile in the water.

In this article, I give you an independent review of the Heddon Super Spook Jr. and show you the specs for this lure.

You can also see the top pros and cons and a tutorial on how to work this lure in the video review at the bottom of the article.

Heddon Super Spook Jr. Specs

Heddon Super Spook Jr. Underwater

The Heddon Super Spook Jr. comes with one lure to each pack.

Here are the specs for the Super Spook Jr.:

  • Size: 3.5 inches
  • Weight: 1/2 oz
  • Standard Hooks: #4 saltwater treble hooks

These lures generally run about $7-10 depending on where you buy them from.

Note: I don’t like the treble hooks that come with the super spook jr lures, so I replace them with single hooks built for replacing trebles. I like the 1/0 Owner Model #: 4101-111 for this lure (discount details below).

Luke Simonds and Heddon Super Spook Jr.

This is a great topwater that catches fish. It has good action and is a solid choice for targeting redfish, snook, seatrout, bass, tarpon, and pretty much any other fish that feeds on baitfish at the surface.

While the lure is not perfect, it has proved to produce over the years so I highly recommend adding one of these to your tackle box if you do not yet have one.

I’m curious, what size inline do you use to replace the hooks on the full size super spook?

I have found that the Rebel ‘Jumpin Minnow’ will outfish the Heddon topwater lures consistently when fishing for Striped Bass. Since Striped Bass attack most of time from the front of a lure and a poor hookup ratio with single hooks I leave the treble on the front. One needs to see John Skinner fish the ‘chrome’ Rebel ‘Jumpin Minnow’ down south to appreciate its ability to catch specks,redfish and snook with this lure. Most of time a conventional retrieve will work but sometimes one needs to ‘run’ the dog.

Thanks for the advice & video Luke! I just bought one of these Super Spook Jr lures and hope to wear it out in a coupe of weeks down in the Sanibel area.

Hey Luke, I was curious why you guys mainly recommend the jr. do you guys ever use the regular 5in spook? Or do you switch to the bigger one during a certain time of year? Thanks!

Do you use the same colors when your are South La and South Ms in the marshes and muddy/sandy water? Towards the Gulf? I do not see many videos dissecting these areas.

Nice vid. You mention in the vid to use a loop knot to maximize the action. You should have a link to tying it.

Hey Floyd google the “canoe man” knot. Easy as pie with that loop knot. It’s what I use 100% with all my lures.

I absolutely freaking love the Zara Spook!! It is one of, if not THE BEST lure to use in open water to walk the dog!! If you want HUGE top water explosions, and nice bucket heads, this is the lure. Around structure, above grass lines, but especially in open water!! I usually start my retrieve with a 1, 2 tempo, and alternate it with a 1-2 tempo, to a stop. “Chick-a, chick-a, chick-a, BOOM!!!” That’s the cadence. I love my bullfrog color so much that I ordered them straight from the factory. (Noticed I said “them.”) Windy days, choppy water, calm, in the evening, in the morning or if you just want to drive some fish HAWG WILD, tie one one, cast it far, hold on tight!!! Not recommended for “dirty” water, also not to be fished like a soft body frog. TIP: don’t let the explosion tempt you into a quick hookset, by the time you can say, “there’s one!” It’ll be time to set the hook.
