Lobina Lures Rico®
The Rico® popper from Lobina Lures is one of the top baits on tour and is made to Rick Clunn's specifications. The perfectly tuned cup face creates the ultimate popping-and-bobbing action; the handlaid foil finish, feathered trailer and quality Gamakatsu® trebles are simply the best to be found anywhere. Length: 2-3/8". Weight: 1/4 oz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aerium My most successful popper of Jul 2012 Used Tennessee Shad color Rico popper for catching bass and pike on Dogtooth lake (Ontario) in Jul 2012. Every second cast had a fish on the hook. Was very satisfied with this popper performance. Then lost it in weeds and had to use other poppers - drastic decrease in catch rates. Need to get one or two of these poppers again. If only they were not so expensive. Definetely recomending. June 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Firemike24 Outstanding Performance! This topwater bait consistently outperforms others. I see this fishing side by side with others on my boat. I think that it is the rattle and the smaller/more defined splash cup on the front of the lure. The hooks are insanely sharp use extreme caution unhooking fish. I am a self proclaimed cheapskate, but even I don't have trouble dropping a little extra $ on this bait... August 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveEast Excellent lure My favorite topwater. The lower lip is cupped back slightly, and that creates a lure that spits like a shad skipping across the surface rather than a pop. Favorite method is to cast, let it sit for 20 seconds, then the slightest movement, then rip it across the surface as fast as I can while creating a smooth, spitting result. I don't want the lure bouncing wildly. Excellent hooks. Easy to wrap on new feathers at home if needed. Pretty rugged, and it catches a lot of fish before showing signs of wear on the finish.

A:Match the hatch. What do the fish in the water your fishing eat? That's the color for clear water. I like the bass fry color in clear to slightly stained when fishing for LM bass. I wouldn't be afraid to throw bright colors if smallies are the target. I don't use this lure in murky or muddy water.
A:I fish them on 10-15 lb mono. Depending on the conditions, I tie it straight to the lure, or if catching larger fish or in more cover, I may add a swivel above a leader...
A:I tie it directly with a palomar knot, and then try to keep the knot at the bottom of the lure's ring. Helps it to skip a little better if you do that. Monofilament is my line choice. Flourocarbon sinks, and that would pull down the front of the lure.
A:Fishermans knot with a little tag, pulled tight to the bottom of the eye. Mono 10lb because it floats.
