Knock off Whopper Plopper

Recommended Posts

Hate to break it to you guys, but if your familiar with musky fishing at all, you’d know that the whopper plopper is maybe the original knock off, these guys have been around for years. 

And yes, I have caught some big smallies on these while Musky fishing, they seem to like the baby loon colour a lot.

That was a popular story when these baits were first released as bass baits.   Thanks for sharing the information, probably some that were not aware.

I've caught some tiny largemouth on my muskie choppers, and one bigger one fish.

Did you ever nab up any?

The original is Roberts Mud Puppy a 1930's vintage lure and still being made in various sizes from musky to bass.

No, never did. I did catch a few prespawn bass on the original 130 though.

Yes. I'm glad I'm not the only guy who doesnt think the wopper plopper is "origianal". I have 2 mini mud puppies that I bought 20+ years ago. They work well. I have a whopper plopper and it is a complete rip off of the mud puppy. I dont dislike the WP, but its irritating to hear people talk about it like it's something new and act like it's such a great lure. In my experiance, super spook juniors and other walking stick bait lures out fish the WP every time.

I loved my KVD Sexy Dawgs which I'm sure were a knock-off of the Super Spook and caught a ton of fish on them but never close as many as the WP's have.
