Bett's® Trim™ Gim Popper
The Bett's Trim Gim Popper's long slender bullet shaped cork body and high-action rubber legs generate more wiggle than a honey bee giving directions. Outstanding for bass and bream, the Trim Gim Popper's hackle fibers give this big-time wiggler a larger profile along with more seductive movements. The cork body with contrasting black dots and bright colors is cemented onto a Mustad® hook. Size 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stefenuch best commercial bluegill popper have used this popper design since the late 1980's truly the best commercial for bluegill..even early spring or late fall; and you will catch a few bass as a bonus; they are too expensive, but they have caught hundreds of 7 to 9+ inch bluegill over the years...highly recommend a 3 wt rod fly rod...7 ft floating 7 ft 3x leader works quite well...even on a windy day...let the popper rest, sometimes it takes 30 seconds or so for the larger bluegill to bit...most exciting at night when you have to listen for the bit December 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by TLARbb Bett's Trim Gim poppers I've been using these popper for bluegill for a couple of decades. I prefer the yellow and chartreuse colors, but these little guys definitely work wonders on bluegills in shallow water or wherever they are holding shallow. Great for spawning bluegills. Good quality construction and proven designs. As someone else mentioned these will fit into the smaller mouths of panfish for better and more reliable hookups. A weight forward line is recommended because the rubber legs add air resistance to these lightweight poppers. EJ May 20, 2011

A:depends on what you mean by "regular"...spinning rod light wt. 6 lb line, use a clear float about 4 to 6 feet ahead of the popper...fly rod is more fun and accurate
A:I would recommend a 4, 5, or 6 weight forward line with a leader just short of your rod length. This is a fly fishing "bug" and is very light and air resistant; you will have to use a fly rod to cast the line and lay out the popper. Alternatively, you can use one of these with a bobber to add casting weight on a lightweight spinning outfit, but you will have better fishing results with the fly rod.
Hope this helps.
