I've used them for GT's. They cast an absolute mile. I don't use those techniques though. I either dog walk the lure ultra slow or rip it back with an occasional pop. Which one, depends on the mood of the fish.

Thanks for the input Ken. I have heard about lots of big stripers (30 lb plus fish) taken with that technique, but haven't heard much about pencil poppers for other species. Some say that they work for queen fish, but haven't mentioned the technique !

I am using these where the water is shallow and plugs with lips get snagged. If your popper is a sinker then close your bail arm just before it lands in the water and start the action .Strikes generally come on landing / first 2-3 pops.
