River2Sea Dahlberg Series Double Plopper
This may just be the deadliest, most versatile surface lure you've ever used. Certainly, the River2Sea Dahlberg Series Double Plopper will be the craziest—in a good way.
It floats. It creeps and crawls. It burns through reeds and stickups like a hot knife through butter. It burps, rolls, gurgles, buzzes, stops dead, and lays down a huge bubble trail, depending on the speed of your retrieve and the way you work your rod tip.
Larry Dahlberg designed the Double Plopper to be the ultimate surface buzzer for bass, but you can work it any way you want. It features not 1, but 2 arms, each topped with a plopper blade that rotates counter to the other, to produce the signature sound that brings predators charging in. And with the two arms running interference up front, it's almost totally weedless.
This patent-pending lure comes dressed in a hand-tied skirt and armed with a sturdy River2Sea black-nickel hook. It's ready to fish. So feel free to try a few things you wouldn't dare attempt with a conventional (sinking) buzzbait. Add a trailer or stinger hook if you prefer; the Double Plopper has no problem retaining its balance and high-riding flotation. Its innovative and deadly enough to change your approach altogether. And before long, you may just find yourself fishing places you never would have ventured into before.

Better, Cheaper and Functional Topwater ElsewhereI've heard great things regarding the double plopper, one fisherman even throws it on every outing to draw strikes and claims it is the greatest pike lure for topwater out there. I have found it to be anything but. I have given this lure every chance, throwing in pauses, varying retrieves, fishing around lots of structure and have never had so much as a boil around it. The same water, I've used the arbogast jitterbug and have had fish literally clear the water to grab it. Frequently, the lure will run on it's side on the retrieve or run too deep when it's cast further out. So I question the structural integrity. I'll keep trying but I would rather have 3 different J-bugs for the price of this thing.

bad and goodThey do produce larger fish to strike I'll give them that!
The problem with this bait is
A) the bad wide brakes off in a very short time frame
B) the skirt falls off
C) they tend to run upside-down
D) many of them sink not float
E) cost to value is... you loose money for a bait that you may catch 1 fish off it before it breaks or fails in some way

DisappointedI have used this lure on 5 or so trips and still haven't had any hits on it while other topwater gear has produced. I am now wishing I hadn't spent the money on it and had bought another traditional whopper plopper

Excellent lure. Terrible qualityThis has produced one single smallmouth. Less than a pound on my first cast. But the wires were so bent out of shape after that it was in usable

Great results...poor qualityThe Bone and Loon colors of this lure have produced a ton of decent sized large mouth in the morning. Would have given a 5 if the quality was a bit better. The wires that hold the 2 mini ploppers are very flimsy. After the first bite, you'll be bending them back into place to get the lure to run true again. If you can find them on sale, buy a bunch because they won't last long.

WOW what a waist of $$$Ok for some time I wanted to get this bait you know at $17 each.... Finally did and I am thoroughly disappointed in it.
Often it rides on its side, or up side down. The least bit of weed, grass etc stops the "blades" from spinning. Top it off no fish. If I'm hitting them on a BB I'll switch to this bait and shut down, P/U another BB and bang action again ... first cast.
I got 3 for sale if anyone wants them all for $25

best "buzz bait" ever!After carefully studying I finally decided to spend that much money on the double plopper. And boy I'm glad I did! My very first cast netted me a 4 pound largemouth. I throw a trailer on for added weight when the wind is blowing, but that's all this bad boy needs. What makes this buzz bait different is it can float, so if that bass jumps at it you can leave the double plopper still and it won't sink like the traditional sinking buzzbaits. I have the perch and the "I know it", I just can't decide what color to get next. My local county reservior that I fish 99% of the time is very clear, so those natural colors work very well for me. I hope my review can help talk you into spending the $20 for one, I promise you won't regret it.

AmazingI recently saw a Youtube fisherman using this in a video after iCast. The fish he was catching on the bait were huge! So whenever I stumbled upon this bait I couldn't pass it up. One day later when I busted this bait out at sunset for the top water bite, in merely 5 casts I was reeling in a 4 pounder of my own with a blow up I will never forget. If you see this bait in a store near you, BUY IT! You won't be disappointed.
