Poppers | Category: Introduce yourself

HI Itsa, I asked a friend to bring me poppers. What i got is two poppers, but rather than floating, they sink in the water. What should be a way to use them as all the rest of the poppers that I have, FOAT.

The debate is still open and been going on for years.

There is only 2 advantages for a sinking popper that I know of.

First the extra weight give longer casting distance. Since a popper is a cast and retrieve lure the longer the cast the better.

Second, a sinking popper allows for very fast retrieve. If you retrieve a floating popper too fast it will bounce off the water into the air. A sinking popper will stay in the water even with very fast retrieves.

Oh Thanks Itsa, I had put them in my discarded box. With this information, I intend to try them during this weekend being the high Tide Current period. Going saltwater creek fishing from a jetty, about one hour by car from where I live.

We would love to see some pictures of those Poppers, good luck man, Yes I must agree some game fish want a fast-moving bait so those should be great for targeting your faster game species, you want to work deep water spots preferably off the bricks.
