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

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
