WHAT IS IT?
Heddon Spook Boyo Topwater
WHAT SETS IT APART?
The Heddon Spook Boyo is the in between size of the Super Spook Junior and the Zara Puppy. Over a large part of the country, bass feed on extremely small baitfish which makes the forage difficult to imitate. Once you get a bait small enough to replicate the baitfish the bass are feeding on, the question becomes – can you still effectively throw the bait? Although the Spook Boyo is only 3 inches long, it still weighs 3/8-ounce so the angler is able to bomb it out there.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Offered in 13 colors, including several unique saltwater colors, the Spook Boyo still provides a walk-the-dog style action much like the rest of the Heddon Spook family of lures. A split ring is added to the nose of the bait, giving the bait a wider range of motion. Given its small stature, yet two treble hooks, the Boyo’s hook up ratio is outstanding. A single rattle is added inside the bait, which gives it a very unique sound on top of its unique size. The Spook Boyo a great option for those clear water, finicky schooling fish that key in on super small threadfin shad late in the year.
Chasing schooling fish is easily one of the most fun ways to catch bass, but it can be equally frustrating. Often times the bass get so dialed in on small baitfish that they become extremely difficult to catch. By the time the angler ties on a smaller offering, the fish break the surface too far away to cast such a small bait. The Spook Boyo helps bridge that gap in an angler’s arsenal – a small profile topwater that still casts like a charm.
