Saltwater Bottle Popper Lures

Perfect for North-east Saltwater top water fishing for BIG Stripers and Blues! Great Lazy Action that drives them WILD! One of my favorite poppers!

Salty's Slammers

1.25 oz Size
Solid Rock Maple, individually sealed for maximum durability, primed, painted, and clear coated.
Weighted perfectly for optimum presentation, these poppers will sit tail down in the water so they will walk the dog along with throwing water to look like baitfish. These have hand tied buck tails with flash finished with a durable epoxy.
2/0 VMC Permasteel 4X strong Belly hook, 5/0 Siwash tail hook, 150 lb swivels and 2X strong split rings! Recessed Holographic eyes for maximum effect!

I make all my plugs standard with Siwash hooks for best hook-up!

Nice erratic action to these poppers, they can be fished real slow for the cows.  When I fish the rips and Elizabeth Islands you will always find an Olive/White popper on at least one rod in the boat if not all of them!
I fish these with a 6'6" rod/12 lb test on the boat and a 8'6" rod/20 lb test in coves around Cape Cod and Maine. Enough weight to get you out there and just the right size.
 I've caught cows on these things just letting them drift with no action at all...veeerry slow on top is a killer.

I get asked a lot about what colors are best?
Olive/White mimics a nice size sand eel or baitfish color and size.. Black/Silver makes a perfect small fish/bunker imitation with it's high contrast. 
Electric Squid is a great color to imitate frightened squid as they flee predator fish in the rips and rocks of the northeast. Middle Ground at the end of May..Sunrise...Yellow or Parrot at sunrise or cloudy days.
Parrot works well on sunny days too, we've taken many bass with them at Martha's Vineyard. On sunny days I stick with a color that has a high definition color hue change on it....Olive/White, Blue/White, etc. 
Spend some time looking at the bait prevalent in your area and you will soon understand why certain colors can give you just that little bit of extra advantage to entice a larger fish to take your lure.
Don't be afraid to use such colors as Olive/White, Blue/White, or Yellow/White at night either!
Lot's of people don't fish poppers at night but they are a very effective way to catch fish if you stay in contact with the plug.
Fish them barb-less for an easy release and the health of our fish stocks! I've lost only a few fish in my life to barb-less hooks and they've all been faster runners than I can reel to keep tight to them!
