Offshore Angler™ Lazer Eye™ Saltwater Series - Pencil Popper
Excellent Surf Lure
I have used the 5 1/4 inch lure in the NJ surf for the past 8 year targeting stripers and blues. This lure is well-made, casts very well, has great action, and catches fish. My only complaints are that the finish wears off rather quickly and the number of available lure colors has reduced dramatically in the past few years. I've tried all of the colors and found that in my area Red Head Scale, Atlantic Menhaden, Bunker, and Croaker (in that order) are the most effective. During twilight hours and on overcast days (low light conditions), the Glass Minnow is very effective. When the surf is muddy, Red Chartreuse works very well.
I've had many sessions when this is the only lure the fish would hit.
I've tried the 6 1/2 inch lure during the past two years and found that it doesn't cast very well, particularly into the wind.

Not really a pencil popper!
This was advertised as a pencil popper, although it really is not. A pencil popper it typically tapered smaller toward the front. This popper has a large front which will create more of a splash than a pencil popper. If you're looking for a true pencil popper this is not what you want. As poppers go though, this one looks good and I'm sure will do the job for blues and stripers off the surf.

Great lure you can cast it a great distance, walk it, pop it and it stays stright and true little or no fouling of the line and hooks.
