i would agree with you on the numbers part, but i dont think i agree with the size part. if youre fishing a size 6 to a size 2 popper, youre only going to catch the big aggresive ones. a small bluegill will most likely not get its mouth around a size 2 popper. i was fishing for bass one day and i found the bluegill spot. the smaller ones came and pecked at the popper, but it was 8-10 inch guys that really whacked and put up a good fight.
