Which size, color for East Texas water?
Are they worth the money?

I like the medium size in bone. I've caught more fish on wopper ploppers than any other top water bait. They are brainless to use too

I've worn the props off one and caught 1 fish.
Guess it depends on the lake.

I have had great success with them, but oddly almost no success using a constant retrieve. I started working them like a popper and the results followed. I have had no success on the 130, but love the 90 - Powder and Sooner.

The strikes are explosive. I like the 130 in Bone, Blue Blood or I Know It colors

You can NEVER go wrong with the YM, bone, or any other color....

Just curious, does Academy carry the WP?....haven't been in awhile....

I think that I saw them there today. If not it was at Gander Mountain and they were discounted some for the going out of business sale.

The academy in Lufkin carries them in the 90 and 130 series. I haven't seen the 110 series yet.

I ordered mine from Academy 130 Bone and 130 Monkey Butt. I will be throwing them this weekend on Amistad for the first time. I am pretty impressed with the quality including the hooks.

I also use a slow retrieve, popping it every coupla seconds...I get zero with a fast retrieve ... I like the terminator color...
However, my top performer is yo zuri in clear as possible, and yamamoto pencil in 3 inch, 7/16oz, silver with black back...

Yeah I have a 90
in summer craw and wow explosive blow ups
I work mine like a pop-r but also a slow very slow steady retrieve is also very effective
But it's mainly about confidence if you're confident with the bait you can land big fish on a damm beer cap with a treble hook attached to it. 🤣
