I never do this so often, but I am sure the way it is presented is more important then the plug it self.

In my humble opinion.

Have a look at youtube videos about popping...

Here is one such video..


For MJ keep the size of the popper small. If the place is very shallow, poppers will work for MJ..

For GT you can go with big size poppers.. like Halco 105, 135, 165 sizes.

I would say buy Halco poppers (the cheapest and Value for money) and first learn how to pop..

Regards,
H.Venkatesan

Another question on colours. For Poppers, shallow divers (for casting) and deep divers (5-6 Metres) for trolling what colour should be choose for Indian waters? I have to purchase an assortment of lures (Rapala / Halco) plugs for shore / rock casting and trolling in size 12 -14 cms. This would be used in Andamans & Konkan.

Hi,
I have been using Rapala popper (GM color) since last 2 months, but it has not yet got a bite. Perhaps Indian fishes are more talented than the western fishes. And the funny story is yesterday when I came back from fishing my mother said that do you think that fish is a fool? Why that will bite a wooden toy :lol: ?

But my advice will be go for Halco Red and White with 16 gm weight or less than that if you are going for fresh water.

TL,

Pradeep.

I believe that in many cases of lure fishing Poppers are not the correct lure. They are for a specific species / technique. Have you tried plugs like the Rapala X Rap Saltwater, X Rap Magnum (deep diver) and HALCO - Laser Pro, Hamma, Socerer. These will be the correct lures to use for all your inshore predators viz. MJ, Barra, Barracuda etc.

Indian waters,African waters, Australian waters...... it really makes no difference if you are ocean fishing,the species of fish are the same and will hit the same colours in any of these waters.

An assortment of Rapala,Halco lures in redhead, green mackerel,blue mackerel,green and gold (your Sorcerer, ours is called Scorpion), pink and silver,king brown and some metal Twisty lures will catch you fish anywhere.

Stick to these and you will catch fish.....no lure that I know of has been made specifically for "Indian waters".

Good luck,
Kingfish

It can't be denied completely that poppers do not work, but how many success in Indian rivers is the real question. Sea fishing is a different game. We have huge population and more pollution. Its direct effect is less fish in our water and more pressure on the fish also. So top water lures here in India produce less results than any other places in the world :idea:
