    Yeah it does on mine too Ray. I only watched it 5 mins ago :laugh: :laugh: Hope the yank didnt read that I called him crazy :laugh:

    Basically the guy fishes the popper then goes balistic everytime he hooks a fish. A bit like Rex Hunt on Cocaine.

    I,ve got to say that poppers are the lures I,m interested in. Probably due to the fact that everything is so visible from working the lure and being able to see what it,s doing to the fish hitting it or swirling around it, if it would just calm down a little :sad:

    Wont be long now Ray :cheesy: :cheesy: Im just putting the last few Peelers in the Freezer :happy:. Isnt it a shame that out of all those Rapala vids on you tube none are English. I think we need to get Jellyworm to make us a popping Vid

    Got to admit, seeing that bass hit my Storm popper was one of the most amazing fishing moments of my life and will never be forgotten.

    You caught a bass on a plug Ken. You've never mentioned that :cheesy: :cheesy:. I bet it was great. Hopefully will be some bigger to come for you Flamborough lads this summer.

    Did I mention I caught a bass :cheesy: :cheesy: :laugh:

    Ray I got it on good authority that a popper works in a good chop and it wasnt exactly flat down in Gurn. :happy:

    A great experience Ken. Some of the popping videos I,ve seen are quite funny but really exciting, especially when they repeatedly come flying out of the water and keep missing the popper :surprise: I think they are perhaps trying to whack it to stun it thinking it,s a real fish because such a voracious predator can,t be that bad at grabbing a fish. Here are some of my poppers. The 2 on the right are the Rapala Skitterpop which is what he was using on the vid, I think one of them is the same colour too :surprise: The one on the left is a Dexter Darter and it,s mouth is angled the opposite way to the others to just get it sub-surface when it,s worked. The blue one without a concave mouth is a Rapala Skitterwalk which leaves a fizzy bubble trail behind it and looks very effective when it,s zig-zagged. Theres a couple of small cheapo,s on the left with 2 Yo-Zuri Hydro poppers next to them which cast very well then theres the Yo-Zuri mag poppers 4 in all but in 2 sizes which are rated very highly in the Bass fishing circles.

    They're gorgous Ray, did i mention i had a bass on a popper? :laugh: I was using a Storm Chug Bug, one of the larger ones, sprayed water everywhere and they cast a long long way. They been catching on them all winter down that way and Andy Marques who is an angling guide on Gurn even catches on them in the pitch dark

    Im getting excited thinking about that. One thing I would love to see is a bass strike a lure. I remember quints face was a picture when he caught that decent bass last year, and the story of the shoal of big bass following the hooked one around takes some beating.

    quint Watch out Emperor Zorg's about

    To date I've had no luck with poppers but I hear and have read that they are very good - the take has to be an ultimate angling experience, especially from a large angry fish - I remember that 5lber last year that came from no where and smashed into the lure right at the yaks side, flaring its gill plates and fins as it struck - I can still visualize it now - but all this talk is pointless until the man above sorts out this weather :angry:
