Topping the list of the 10 best redfish lures is a topwater plug, which takes reds over shell reefs in open bays, along jetties and in the surf. The Heddon Super Spook Jr. drives redfish crazy with its side-to-side action. One of the most entertaining days of redfishing I’ve ever had was out of Venice, Louisiana, with guide Bobby Warren. We left the marina at daylight and headed to an area known as the Wagon Wheel. We clearly saw the wakes of big reds that were feeding on the shallow mud flat in the incoming tide. I made a long, arching cast, and on the first twitch of the chrome-and-blue Spook, the water exploded.
