The Halco Roosta Popper is one of our top selling surface popping lures. Purpose built for many applications, the Roosta Popper is available in 3 sizes and 5 colors:
Roosta Popper 135 weighs in at 1 3/4 ounces and is rear weighted for improved casting distance. Perfect choice for school size tuna, bluefish, striped bass, and kingys.
Roosta Popper 160 weighs in at 2 3/4 ounces and the medium size choice, at 6 1/4 inches long and rigged with 2 4/0 size hooks. The unique head shape of this popper provides a long noisy bubble trail to draw in the strike. Excellent choice for large tuna, yellowtal, roosterfish and most pelagic species.
Roosta Popper 195 nicknamed the Haymaker for good reason, this papabear of the Popper line weighs in at 4 1/4 ounces and is rigged with XX strong rings and hooks. The large concave face of the Haymaker digs a hole in the water then errupts creating a massive noisy bubble trail. Our choice for Large Trevally (GT's), Big Tuna and Wahoo.
All Roosta Poppers are rear weighted for maximum casting distance and the perfect stance to begin the retreive. You can impart various actions by retrieval speed and the location of your rod tip, hold it high for a skittering popping action, mid tip retrieve is our favorite way to fish a popper, cast out, once the popper settles upon hitting the water, begin by sweeping the rod back by 60 or even 90 degrees, pause momentarily, wind in the slack line and sweep again. Change you retrieve and sweep speed until you find the one that causes a bite.
