Default Lures for specks

I read about guys using lures for specks. I remember it was a old lure like a Heddon? What are a few good ones to use & time of year to use ?

the Heddon Zara Spook... good lure, it's a walk the dog topwater style lure. they have their time and place... early morning, during the month of April is when i find myself using them. they work for big specks for sure.

also a great lure is a Mirrolure Mirrodine. it's a suspending twichbait that works really well aslo. I know of a 8lb+ trout that ate one this spring. if i had to pick a 'go-to' artificial for trout, this would definitely be it.

I second both mentioned above. I only use artificials for the most part. Some plastics work great as well (ie DOA Shrimp, Flukes, Paddle tails, Gulp).
