So I was fishing with someone who killed it with this lure. Unfortunately, I tried running a Chattterbait most of the morning and switched to a Hula Popper late in the game (got a hit but didn’t boat one). I went and looked at the WP’s in the store and jumping Jehoshaphat, they are expensive! In your opinion, are they worth it? What’s your most productive topwater? I haven’t fished much topwater but have had a little luck with a Spook. By friend mentioned that WPs and Spooks allow you to cover more water than things like PoppRs. Thoughts?

I bought a couple in the past few weeks. Ha ent thrown them a lot yet as my fish have been coming mainly on t rigged worms but, they are the easiest top water lure I’ve used. Looking forward to using it more

If you get on Dick's email list they periodically do flash fishing sales on them Where they are buy 3 get one free or buy one get one half price. The sale is usually just for that day so you have to watch for the emails. They have some good deals on crank baits at times also. I have been able to get lucky Craft and other Dual Core for $5 a piece by buying 5 or more. I don't like there stand on NRA recently though may stop buying from them.

Bass pro has their version, it's called the double down and is as effective at around half the cost of a whopper plopper.

That’s helpful, junebugwapiti! So, you think it IS a more effective topwater than a Spook or other fast moving topwater?

like any other bait, it has its place. not a be-all top water. just another option. I've used one for about 2 years now. the strikes on it are violent but not any more so than strikes on a spook, buzzbait, or popper. they do allow you to cover a lot of water in a hurry.

I wouldn't spend $15 on 1 bait either, but I have a Plopper. It was hung in a tree 1 inch away from a a frog pattern jitterbug. Both looked brand new. I've fished it, but no fish yet.

They are worth it. Especially if any grass starts to top out

Academy had them a while back for 9.99 each regardless of the size

They are a great bait because you can fish it slow or pause it and it still mimics a buzz bait. Generally, they work best for me at post spawn when bass are schooling. Otherwise I don't really get bit well on them. Guess I don't have the patients to stick with it. Some guys swear by them in winter.

I hadn’t checked Academy yet. I watched Dr Detroit just kill it with one and I was pretty impressed.
