Default Yum Money Hound?

Has anyone ever used a money hound?
Seems like a cheap alternative to a spook, but looks like you have to use a 7/0 hook to have a effective enough gap between the rear and the hook point. I have the 4" ones btw.

Just checking to see if anyone has any experience with these?

I'm curious as well...I love spooks, and these look like they would be better around cover.

I've been told hookup is next to impossible. I never have to restock them at bass pro. That's the only positive about that product that I can tell.

Never bought any due as I think the hook up ratio would be bad... Topwater doesn't have the highest ratio of hook ups with 2 or 3 trebles let alone a single hook.
Also rattles is what makes the spooks IMO.

If I was throwing into crazy cover I'd just use a frog...

If open water I'd be throwing spooks.

x2 on the rattles. I remember back in the day we'd have to put on split rings and bigger hooks to try and get some noise out of old school spooks...It worked!

I haven't used them enough to really have a good feel for it, but they do get bit. They may be a little too stiff to be really effective.

I could get it to walk well over grassmats, but the hook-up ratio is next to nothing, even with a bigger Trokar hook. Soft plastic and/or hollow bodied frogs just work better at actually catching fish for me in the places these would be used. They do make a decent search bait.
