Which would you go with, Lobina Rio Rico's or Yellow Magic? Do you have a favorite color in either?

Yellow Magic is by far the nest I have ever used. The Rico is second in my opinion.

Yellow Magic. Bone. Not even close for me.

I've thrown Magnum Pop R's in the front of the boat and in the back of the boat while others were throwing Yellow Magics and Ricos.

I can't recall a trip where the Ricos or YMs produced any more or bigger bites.

Yellow Magic. The Japanese Shad has worked for us in multiple lakes. When used to only have one, my son would pick it up and start throwing it and catching fish. I would put a Pop R on it would not catch the same fish that he was catching at all.

Heddon Hula Popper, the best ever.

Your fish have never even seen one.



(and the Crazy Crawler works as good as a Whopper you know what.)

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

I do like the "chug bug" its bigger than an average pop-r, cast better and you can also walk the dog with it.

I agree with the Yellow Magic bone, hard to beat.

I have fished all of them each one is a little different but chug bug and bone my are my favorite new chugbug colors are not as good, but for Dearman he likes a rebel pop-r and the ones he stayed up all night sanding to perfection are the best hands down, Like a hot baseball just when they are about to break and crack its money

So you are saying that you like the chug bug better than a Yellow Magic +1 and the Shower blow? Is that correct?
