JR - BPS is about as cheap a place as you'll find this hard to find item. It's been right at the top of my preferred topwater baits this Spring thru Fall. If you may be planning a trip in the South soon (or have friends that are) you might find them in tackle shops. Don't plan on finding any locally. If you need to make a BPS order throw a couple on your list of items! Good luck!
If you can work a spook you can do this - the only difference are the little fins up front (near mouth area). They throw a little bit of water to the side as the lure walks. It works perfect in calm conditions.
