Your thoughts on this idea

Recommended Posts

Years ago when I was a youth,I had a guy fishing at the pond next to me. He was throwing a Hula Popper and had a leader tied to the back of it with another small cork fly rod popper on it,as a teaser. The guy got a huge strike on this setup,but broke off when the fish ran him into some submerged trees.

I was thinking of the same setup except I wanna change it up a little. Instead of using a Cork Fly rod popper as a tease,I wanna use a smaller  Hula Popper thats a twin to the larger one in the front.

I want to connect the 2 poppers with a length of 50# braid perhaps 12-15 inches in length. Where should I tie the leader onto the larger Hula Popper? Do I tie it to the shank of the rear treble,or to the eye of that hook. Im wondrering how the tail of the larger popper will effect this whole setup.

Any reason this shouldnt work? Any thoughts,suggestions,hints on this setup would be appreciated

Its been done before and some people tie a fly fishing topwater behind a fluke or other topwater.

A pro showed this to me many years ago.

Tried it a few times without any luck.

So you give it a try and see what happens.  :)

could you maybe make the front bait somthing with three sets of trebs and take the back treb off and tie to that eye? seems like if you tied near a hook the line would just get tangled in the hooks...

I've heard this as well... something about finicky bass will try hitting the smaller lure behind it because its less intimidating or something. Never tried it though...

i take a tiny torpedo, remove the back hook nd tie a 24inch leader to it with a small sammy, zara pup, or spit'n image behind it. When the spots are schooling chasing shad, it is a lethal combo!

put the small one in front.  it's more natural to have the big one chase the small one
