I lost a tuna and brand new cedar and hour earlier when a pissed off tuna beat me up and got under me while clutch ahead! I know it's great to have water moving by to help control but have had mixed results. Sometimes it works great others not so. As it was I had to unwind a bunch of 80 pound from my hub. Having fished years in Hawaii and lots of it solo I know the norm is to keep moving but....... Oh well!

That's funny I lost a Williamson popper just like that on the tribute a week ago on a fish... What would the chances be?!

It had about 20' of 30# clear mono on it and some teeth marks. Not sure if it's a Williamson, but I'll check when I get down to my boat. Sound familiar? I'd be happy to return it if it was really yours.

I think your spreading the luck all around if that was his popper. Finding a lost plug and returning it to the owner a week later That is lucky
