Good Night On The Popper

Recommended Posts

After 3 pretty hot days (80 is hot for where I'm from), I headed down to a local reservoir that is very highly pressured. Started the out with a jerk bait but as the sun started to set I decided to test out my new rod and throw a jawbone popper that I had just picked up from work. In a span of about 30 minutes I hooked up with 10 or 11 fish, all between 1.5-2 pounds. Not huge in size, but top water is fun no alter what size your hooking into.

On a side not, the dicks brand "jawbone" makes some pretty nice poppers. Considering I get them for about two bucks they're unbeatable in my eyes. I plan on making a video about them soon.

Fished a 1/4 bone colored popper. The only catch with these are that you need to replace the hooks. I went with size 6 vmc in red. post-48904-0-88273400-1431138573_thumb.jpost-48904-0-45606800-1431138635_thumb.j

Top water this early? Nicely done! I love a top water bite!

definitely. Last week they were killing the frog over the mats. I figured during this part of the year, on Sunday days in the high 70's I figured they would be sticking under the moss to get away from the sunlight, and they came right through those mats. First time I had ever fished a frog in April. And tonight it seemed like they only wanted a popper.

I bought a Jawbone jerkbait and it seems pretty nice. I hope Dick's continues to keep them well stocked. The frogs are soft for $3 too. Good deal man. Nice setup btw.

thanks bud. Let me know how they are. They look like the perfect size to match the frogs in the smaller ponds I fish from time to time but I've heard of a huge durability issue. Let me know how they work for you,
