i was fishing a popper one day, i cast out and while letting the ripples die i watched a blue gill hitting a insect a couple of feet away from my popper when a bass blew up on my popper. this got me thinking that the bluegill making comotion helped entice the strike, so i tied about 18" of 8 lb. mono to the back hook of the popper and tied a panfish popper to the other end it. i fished this rig the rest of the evening and i was impressed that the addition of the panfish popper improved the presentation. what happens is blue gill will come up and hit the small popper and i let them mess with it and make some noise, next thing u no the gills dart away and a split-second later BOOM a bass eats the popper. as long as the small popper is getting messed with i am confident tht ths rig is actively attracting bass. only down side is the light popper whips around when casting and can become tangled in the treble hooks on the popper, however by slowing the speed of the bait through the air i can now consistently cast with out any problems.
