Re: How to fish a popper properly?
I let my poppers sit with no movement most often. They sit still most of the time and most of the strikes I get come after 5 seconds or so. When I do move then its often just a very minute twitch to get the rubber legs to move. And Lastly I will give them a twitch usually with the rod tip just to make one small pop. I never retrieve them in popping along the way.
By the way I am fishing smallies exclusively.
