About Me:
First let me say it is nice that the hooks are included. Makes things much nicer. The poppers are not easy to make. The #12 size is especially hard as the foam body slot is the same size for both the #12 and #10. That means the bodies are very lose for the #12 making it very hard to keep the hook in there to glue it. I would not buy the #12 again. Besides #10 works great for bluegills anyway. The next problem is making a hole for the rubber legs. You cannot just poke a pin through the foam. And you cannot drill through it as the drill bit slips all over the place. The only thing is to heat a needle and poke it through. I had to make a tool out of a safety pin of the appropriate size. I cut the pin off at the latch, drilled a hole in the end of a 5/8" dowel, and glued the pin in. Made it much easier. The poppers when you get them done really catch fish and seem to be durable. I caught 96 bluegill on one and it was still in fine shape. Would have caught many more except that I lost it in a monster bass that broke my 2x tippet. They are definitely worth all the trouble to make them. I used nail polish to paint them. Wonderful stuff and comes in endless colors.

Pros: Durable and catch fish like crazy.

Cons: Hard to make.

Best Uses: Bass and sunfish.

First let me say it is nice that the hooks are included. Makes things much easier. As far as making the poppers, it is not easy. The size #12 is especially hard as the slot is the same size as the #10 which makes it very hard to keep the hook in the slot to be glued. I would not buy the #12 again. Besides a size #10 works fine for bluegills. The next problem with either size is making a hole through the body so one can get the rubber legs through. You cannot just take a needle and poke it through. You cannot drill it as the drill bit slips all over the place. The only thing is to burn your way through with a hot needle. I finally had to make a tool to do it. I took a safety pin of the appropriate size, cut off the pin at the latch side, drilled a hole in a 5/8" dowel, and glued the pin in the dowel. That worked and made the job easier. So making the poppers is hard but can be done with some figuring out. The finished results are very nice. They catch fish like crazy and seem to be durable. The first one I tried caught 96 bream with no ill effects. Probably would have caught a lot more except I hooked a monster bass on it which eventually broke me 2x tippet, so we will never know how long the popper would have lasted. I used nail polish to paint the bodies. Wonderful stuff and comes in a wide array of colors.

Pros: They really catch fish.

Cons: Hard to make.

Best Uses: Bass and sunfish.
