I decided to order a Whopper Plopper from an Alibaba store in China. Three reasons: 1st because of the price, $6.85, 2nd to see how long it takes since it's free shipping and 3rd to see if it's the real thing. Alibaba has good reviews and no complaints so we'll see. If and when it gets here I'll report good or bad. Seems to me if they can ship one free from China for $6.85 they may be over charging here. I paid $12.99 at Academy for one here.

I love those things !!! Let me know how this works out . I love to throw the Whopper.....Years ago there was a tackle show at Fair ground in Dallas Dad and I talked a guy out of two lures that they were about to start producing We came back to Winnsboro and wore the fish out About a month later I looked around in Saline Creek on Palestine and I counted 4 guys throwing a Lunker Lure. Love the explosion and watching the blow up. Oh and the anticipation !!!


Fishing and Dogs, how much fun can one old guy have !!!

You need a new iphone badly. I bought an iphone 6s on ebay for 1/2 price. I mostly use a laptop for online purchases though, much faster to navigate. Aliexpress says 10-20 days for delivery so we'll see how that works out. They're really trying to get a customer base over here.

They say 10-20 days for delivery so we'll see but I don't plan my fishing around the shad spawn anyway. I'm actually always glad when the spawn is over each year and the fish get off the bank.

If you're only throwing it for the shad spawn you're missing out on a ton of fish

I used allibaba for tungsten weights. Bought 2000 of them for a crazy cheap price. Took about 2months to get them but got them crazy cheap.

You're probably right Ted and if the lure is fake they'll get some really bad feedback here, other fishing forums and their website. thumb
