Designed by legendary angler and TV personality, Larry Dahlberg, the River2Sea Whopper Plopper delivers a sputtering topwater disruption that is begging to be crushed. Well-known for its ability to catch, Dahlberg and the folks at River2Sea originally created the Whopper Plopper for musky, but once largemouth and smallmouth started crushing, it was altered to meet the needs of bass anglers.

The Real Deal!

The Whopper Plopper has a huge following out there! I had to try this one out for myself and I was not disappointed! Great summer time topwater bait for smallies! Compared to a lot of other topwater lures this one seems to have a much higher hookup ratio. It casts a mile and can cover a lot of water. It is also a good musky lure. I have seen all 3 sizes catch musky. Only downfall (I have not experienced this but I have heard others have) is that the slit rings tend to be weak and fail. My one Whopper Plopper though must have 50 smallies on it and several 18-20 inchers and still looks new!
