Bass action on poppers

5 posts in this topic

Casey took me out in his canoe for some evening bassin' . I tried some foam blockhead flyrod poppers I made this weekend that worked pretty good. Got a few bass and a sunfish

Nice work Cyber!

Are those blockhead poppers tough to make? Figure the the foam would pretty much always stay on top compared to deerhair poppers.

Well Marc, the deer hair poppers are a lot more fun (and difficult) to tie, but the foam poppers DO float better, longer. If you treat the hair poppers well with floatant they will last through several fish.

My favorite though, is the Yellow Turkey, made from the cork of a Wild Turkey bourbon bottle and large yellow hackles. It's a killer. It might be the odor of old bourbon that does it.

Bass just tear 'em up. Thus,(sigh) I have to keep making more of them thus (sigh) sipping more Wild Turkey.

But only the 80 proof. That 101 is pure swill!! grin.gif

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
