My take on the double plopper.

Recommended Posts

After having success on the 90 and the 130 ploppers i decided to put down the cash for the double plopper. 

after trying it out i found  out how different it is from the plopper. first off you cannot fish it fast or else it will lift, you have to bring it in painfully slow.  while doing so i had a few strikes but like most buzz baits with one hook the short strikes were all i could manage. like the 90's you kinda have to wait a few seconds after you cast it out to float back up. im figuring if you had a trailer hook it might take longer.  on the plus side you can bring it over matted grass fairly easy. i guess thats one of the main reasons to use it. to me that would be the only reason to use it.

Lastly, its one of the most fragile lures ive ever tossed. i accidentally clipped a branch and bent the wire on one of the mini plopper and ive been trying to get it to swim correctly since. 

Since i bought two of them, i most likely will be giving one away to a friend.

What kind of gear did you use to throw it? What time of day did you try it?

I love the 90 and 130 size but this just screamed gimmick to me, and an attempt for them to cash in on the success of the standard lure. If they want to do that I suggest they just come out with a 110 size.

Saw it....looked like something I would have to "deal with".  I don't throw baits I have to "deal with".  No thanks

I'll just stick with my cavitrons.  I have a couple plopper 130's that I like, but I've always done way better with single blade buzz baits than the double ones anyways, and for the price of this contraption I could buy a couple and a pack of trailer hooks
