    I use large spokes, rebels etc
    For stripers and want to try for yt. Is iron just better or just what everyone uses. If I do, should I drop to one treble hook for safety reasons.

    I’ve caught YT on poppers on the Ridge on 10 day trips. I’ve had one hit the popper with some of his friends following trying to take the popper away!

    I have caught lots of yellows on poppers.....just put singles on them less hassle getting them off the hook.

    Can be done, but surface iron is better.
