Offshore Angler Lazer Eye Saltwater Series - Pencil Popper
BPS pencil poppers work
2 sizes, nice durable finish, easy to cast even into the wind, floats well, pops well, can work them slow or fast, good harware and hooks, can fish them right out of the package. I hope they can attach this photo to the review and note the 5.5" pencil popper on the rod I have tucked in my wading belt. 2010 Striper fishing in RI was a year to remember.

Very Good Lure
This lure is fantastic ! ! ! It casts very long....makes a very nice noise if you cast right....goes very long and way past where the fishes will strike (gives you time to get comfortable and settled). Not hard to work..will work almost any way......as long as you don't go crazy with it....the movement is great. Just find your lure after casting...look and focus on it and work it....don't over do it. Don't cast up in the air but more of like a bullet. I caught stripers in 3rd week of April way before the OFFICIAL arrival of the Stripers begins. The little ones go after this big lure....believe me it is wild but they do (i think the lure is 3x bigger then their mouth, but they go after it). Great lure for the price (one of the best) and it works period.....on stripers....it did for me.....Just relax....find the lure after casting...focus on it and bring that bad boy in....and you will see the white belly and the tail of the striper come up and smack this lure...just find the lure after casting and you will find the stripers you are looking for.

great lure at a great price
this version of the classic pencil popper is very effective when properly worked. It is most effective when not worked like a traditional popper. North East surfcasters have learned to grab the rod and the line about 1/3 of the way up on the surf rod an shake the rod while SLOWLY reeling the line. This causes a side to side splashing of the lure that drives Bass ans Blues crazy. This lure was part of one of my best days of fishing last October on a North Shore Long Island beach. I hooked 15 Blues from 35 to 42 inches long in 2 hrs. I managed to land 8. There was no sign of the fish in the water, and i tried almost every lure in my bag. The plug they responded to was the pencil popper. I think the side to side splashing motion "feels" more like a crippled fish to the game fish in the water. The finish of these lures are tough enough to stand up to repeated assualts by big blue fish.
