    I need to buy some poppers for a trip in 2 weeks. Please give me your recomendations on sizes and colors. What would you buy. Plan on spending a couple bills.

    thanks

    Where are you fishing? I think the action means more than color.

    If we're talking tuna, Goanna cruiser. Pencil baits are the easiest to work, both in technique and effort. I also think tuna prefer them to chuggers. The 3 flying fish models are my favorite colors.

    sorry,
    It will be tuna. I couldn't remember what colors were working best on Seis tuna.

    Buy all of them, never know what the tuna will be feeding on.

    Can the poppers be purchased locally in the Dallas area or do I have to order online.

    Joe: You can usually get poppers from TJ (minnow)-he lives in Richardson. Send him a PM to see if your schedules line up.

    Just got off the phone with TJ. I am meeting him in the morning to get a few things. Say prayers so I don't spend too much. I am thinking about a longer popping rod.
