    River2Sea Whopper Plopper

    Looking for opinions on the Whopper Plopper topwater bait that Larry Dalhberg made for River 2 Sea? Tossing Top Rader most of the time now, but thinking of getting a small(5") Whopper Plopper.
    Thanks!

    I have recently been turned onto these also and I prefer them over TR's..They make some serious noise. The only thing scary is when you purchase it hold it up and just look at it...The mold I think was from a human if you know what I mean, and now Im have afraid to pee off my boat!!!!

    I have a whopper plopper and it has a perfect pop, throws really good water and does not roll. Get one.

    Completely sold out of them in a week the first time and reorded them twice. I kept one for myself for when i had the opportunity to actually hit the water. 2 fish in forty minutes and now i have confidence in the bait. Well built and excellent hooks!

    Plopper is great bait for sure but avoid Wideglide it doesn't work at all.
    I know many people who tried them but the action is very poor and difficult to achieve.

    Just the input I needed guys..THANK YOU! What colors did you/fish prefer?
    Saw the add in the latest MH with new smaller size & new colors, but the their web page has no info on this. Sent a email to them for more info.Two of the new colors pictured looked like loon & perch.

    I like the perch. Got a 48 last night on it. I like that it plops at very low speeds and will not roll over at fast speeds. Love the water it throws as well.

    RE: River2Sea Whopper Plopper

    I picked one up and spent some time fishing it. Quality construction, great sound, and a good price point.

    Issues I encountered were difficulty jump starting the tail at the start of the cast. The lure is balanced perfectly for the STOCK hooks... which prevents putting a larger hook on the front without the lure sinking at the start of the retrieve. Any remedies for this?

    Long, I swear to god if someone came out with a bait that caught 50 inchers on every cast you would tinker with it to try make it better. Maybe that's why you're always catching fish :-)
