got this murrel on a popper today at 0700. besides this i was able to get a popper broken off by a monster of a fish probably a mulley. another murrel took off with my treble and split ring.
i had seen a sharp drop in the water levels due to the heat and consequent migration of baitfish to other parts of the lake. i scouted around and found a spot ,weed choked and snaggy . put on a popper and made a beaut of a cast.got an immediate hit and had a good fight. the fish ran to the weeds and i sent my retriever to scoop it out. he went and came back with an empty line ! i had been bitten off. i attached a fluro leader and another popper. another hit but a failed hook up. had two more blow ups before i was able to land this one.

senor eljefe ! good to hear from u. i am going to try roosta popper size 80 and see the results.
the reason for this action is the rapid drying up of our lake which is spread over 3-4 acres. this is leading to shrinking pools for baitfish which makes the mulley and murrel congregate. i did not have a single bite on a frog so far and as far as this area goes i shall not use another frog if a popper can be used without getting hung up. but i did get good results on live frogs at night.

most of the murrel in my posts have been caught on poppers with the exception of a few which i caught on spoon and a storm thunderstick.
sorry ! forgot the one i got on a beetle lure !
it is great fun to twitch a popper. the sequence if murrel are on the take is "
bloop,bloop and splash" often they hit the popper immediately after the impact but then u don't get time to get ready.
i am yet to get any fish on a mepps (have only a lowly no 1) and the scum frogs . that said i am trying to get some spro bronzeye frogs and a couple of tru tungsten frogs.
