    You guys can have your flatfalls. Nothing more exciting than watching them crush the Poppa!

    That's what I'm talkin about. Noted the size of the popper. Chunck is affective if the don't come up. This is the year that tuna act like strupers.

    Telling everyone who will listen that they are "on the chunk" makes them feel they are experts and are helping the less fortunate in on their "secret". Had one guy last friday say "they want the small baits today", after we had caught 12 on large. I guess we have to give them their moment.

    Nice fish. Nice popper. Good job.

    Sick!!! What popper is that? I keep seeing people with the HUGE Orca poppers... don't know how people expect to get bit on a lure that's 2-3x the size of the bait. I just got a halco roosta 4.5" popper, the action is insane just need to get into a good bite! Do you do a steady retrieve, stop n' go, or skip it?

    Popper fishing is exciting when you see the fish crush your bait!

    The only problem is the small poppers like the halco 80 or 105 dont have any weight to cast them out. Ive tried slow trolling them with dines and working them on top with no luck so far. Which popper is this?

    Good luck on tour 3 day. I'm doing the fresh water popper version at Pyramid Lake for stripers tomorrow. I know, wrong forum and way smaller fish and gear, but just as exciting and even tastier.
