I have never had much luck fishing poppers. (translation: no luck at all) But I just read that if you cast a popper out there, wait until all the ripples subside and then move it a little and wait for those ripples to subside, etc. I have never fished one that slow. Do you guys fish them that slow? I'm wondering if that has been my problem with poppers? I don't know if fishing them that slow will work or not, but I can't wait for it to warm up and try it.
