Re: Catalog Topic #2: Poppers
I agree with Jared on color, something with a white bottom and then something with a dark bottom. Rythm is everything even with a popper, some times they want it fast sometimes they want it just chugged in place. Get it up close to the cover and just play with different retrieves, till you find what they want, nothing more exciting than seeing a toilet flush under a topwater bait.
Use stout line, I like braid for all my topwater baits since it floats, and use a rod with some backbone, you will need to drive the hooks home, and be able to turn the fish from the cover. But you dont want it so stout that you rip the hooks out of the fishes mouth.
