Musky fishermens be entitled to credit history for starting the Whopper Plopper trend when they developed similar homemade baits with metal tails.
However, business had problem mass-producing those metal-tail lures keeping that unique plopping audio up until Larry Dahlberg designed the Whopper Plopper for River2Sea as a musky appeal. The firm introduced the appeal with a softer plastic tail in the 190 dimension of 7 1/2 inches. , if You Build Them Fish Will Come When the company
began obtaining numerous photos of 8-pound smallmouth and also heavyweight largemouth being caught by anglers throwing the 190 Whopper Plopper for stripers as well as musky, a brand-new smaller variation of the appeal was designed in 2011. The 5-inch 130 Whopper Plopper began generating lunker bass quickly but River2Sea pro staffers attempted to keep the lure a trick to win competitions on the brand-new appeal.

Whopper Plopper Size Breakdown
The Whopper Plopper 130 When I am bass angling in the autumn, I favor throwing the 130 Whopper Plopper due to the fact that it matches the dimension of the gizzard shad bass are consuming then on my house waters of Lake of the Ozarks.
The Whopper PLopper 110
When fishing pressure causes bass to overlook the 130 I downscale to the 110 version to attract the fish into biting once more. These two designs normally produce difficult strikes from top quality bass so I toss the lures on 30- to 50-pound pigtail with a 7 1/2-foot flipping stick. The bass are normally foraging on the gizzard shad along open walk rock financial institutions during this time, which permits me to make use of the heavier tackle due to the fact that I do not have to make accurate casts to specific targets then.
The Whopper Plopper 90 The 90 Whopper Plopper is my favored dimension for tossing to the edges of boat anchors for suspended bass during the postspawn as well as very early autumn. I require to be extra accurate with my casts in this scenario so I throw this appeal on 14-pound test monofilament as well as a 6 1/2- or 7-foot medium-action spreading pole.
The Whopper Plopper 75
The 75 dimension is excellent for throwing to bass busting baitfish externally during the summer season. The 3-inch version finest matches the dimension of the shad bass are feeding upon then.
