I fish two colors Bone and Loon. I use a heavy action rod and braid for my set up. I generally pull into an area cast at high probability targets and use a steady retrieve. The key to the Plopper is the ability to cover so much water quickly. The 130 size has gotten me the most strikes but the other sizes work. You can use mono but just remember any surface clutter that gets in the prop will make the line twist.

Sometimes a quick twitch of the rod tip to spray a little water. The strikes can be violent. FUN!!

Yep, they tricked me into buying a couple. It's basically a very expensive, lightweight buzzbait that doesn't sound like a buzzbait should. There are a couple of guys on here that make a 3 or 4 dollar buzzbait that will outfish them any day.

Only two colors you need are bone and loon, if you can't get loon yellow head will suffice.

If the whopper plopper can catch them, a frog is a better choice that day. That said, sometimes you just want to chunk mindlessly and not have to worry about precision or cadence. That's where a WP is ok.

I’ve been throwing one sparingly for over a year and haven’t had a bite on it yet. I can be catching them on another topwater and then pick up the plopper and nothing. Throw the other one again and still catch them. I guess I’m not doin it right
