Was curious, what’s everybody’s favorite top water lure for striper and sand bass? Mostly when you can sight fish and cast into them. I found these other day on amazon and they worked really well today at Whitney. Caught a few real nice size striper on them and a couple dozen about 12-14 inches long. On the way back to the ramp I ran through a huge school, followed them and the birds around for about 45 minutes catching small striper. Nothing real big today but I was just happy to be catching fish! [Linked Image]

Good old fashioned Pop-R has never let me down.


If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

My go to has mostly been a Pop-R or pencil popper for top water but I recently have been having some success with Bob Maindell's MAL lure and have found that I can keep it on top when the fish are boiling the surface but also slow it down some and let it get a couple of feet below the surface and keep on catching fish when they are not busting the surface.

Pop Rs are a staple with me. Love them for stock ponds!

I ordered 4 or 5 of those last week after reading the post on here but haven’t received them yet. I tried this with a rattle trap last weekend and couldn’t keep it up high enough.

Heddon Baby Torpedo in clear or chrome works really well. Be careful with the two sets of treble hooks. I cut them off and replace them with barbless hooks. More catching and less unhooking.

Amazon....here I come! Lol. Thanks for all the input everybody. Nice to see what everybody’s favorite is. My fav has always been a Pop R for bass. Haven’t used them for stripers or sandies yet, but will soon!
