Re: Popper Swap
Mine will be striped foam on size 8 hooks. A quick and easy pattern that you dont have to worry about tossing into snags and weeds.
Should be OK for big gills (which we don't have here) and small smallmouth (which we got lots of here).
When you hit the dollar store for materials, you might also check out foam drink caddies. Easy cut foam, lots of colors, cheap.
