Default Make your Hula Poppers "pop"

If you're anything like me, you have a few Hula Popper bodies laying around not being used, because the skirts are junk, or gone. Add a little "pop" to them by using Jig/SpinnerBait skirts on them. They last longer, breathe more, and are easily replaced when needed, or when you want a different colored skirt.

Those do look good Mo

There are yet many other options you guys have in this situation.

The 1st one being is to contact Pradco / Lurenet / Arbogast. They don't sell the original skirts...but will send you a few free at no charge if you tell them what size (weight-wise) lures you have

You can also find rubber skirts pretty much identical to the originals both on Ebay and a few other websites. Here's one company that sells them...

Yet another idea is a quick-change type skirt. You can mount either traditionally or backwards just like on spinnerbaits. This Ebay seller has a good combination of colors...and both 2.5 and 3" sizes...

Still ANOTHER idea is to use a double hook-hitch-hiker-doubletail grub as I meantioned in another topic.

Last...but not least...if you tie...or know someone that does...you can do something like in this pic...

Good looking and good ideas here. I might have to try a deer hair version on one of my older pops. Thank you.

Great idea there Mo, Thanks. I have some old ones laying around with the gunked up skirts. I will give this a try.
