Spro -- hot big pike lure

Tommy Cieplik, the man behind the great videos shot with a GoPro camera featured elsewhere on this blog, swears by this swimbait for big pike. He has used the Spro for several years and this year converted the rest of the family to the plug.
The Cieplik family just left camp today.
Tommy caught a bunch of lunkers on the six-inch, sinking version of the lure. He also uses a four-inch version.
By mid-week father Carl, mother Brenda and aunt Debi were casting the plug as well. Everybody did great with it.
Tommy says the lure usually isn't found in local tackle stores. He buys it on-line.
The silver and perch patterns work best.

Thank you for the tip on the Spro. I could only find the perch colored Junior but caught a nice 37" on it and a handful of slot size and smaller eater size. Also caught myself, but that's another story :) Also used the Spro as a wake-up call in big weedbeds and points by fan casting and then going to our favorite KO Wobbler 3/4 oz. spoon (silver with orange stripe is the best). Casts 30-yards with a 7' rod and catches pike, walleye and lake trout.
