first attempt at popper

14 posts in this topic

B) Hi Guys

This is my first attempt at a popper, it's a flat sided bait with rounded edges (no lathe). Buzz blade with .062 stainless steel wire at the back. Has a nice popping action on the front as well as a lot of spinning and splashing at the rear. Hand carved gills and pec fin. Let me know what you think.

Thanks

It's very nice. The problem I have using such a work of art is that the Bluefish, which inhabit the waters where I fish, will trash a plug like that in no time 8O . Save that Puppy for bass. B)

They look great! I did something similar but I used a regular propeller in the rear.

May I ask how does you bait sit at rest on the water (as is level, slightly tail biased)?

Also, what type of wood did you use?

Thanks!
