SS Poppers - Sinkers vs. Floaters - Can You Tell By Looking at Them ?

Rate this topic

Don't know about yellow eyes, except for the yellowed eyed devils that eat them, but green eyes = floating and black eyes = sinking.

 

I never have a problem as all my SS Littlenecks are sinking models. :D

maybe because they work and are proven striper catchers.

 

Yea sinkers work, but sometimes floaters work better. Been there done that. Thanks.

I agree. Just because all my SS Littlenecks are sinkers does not mean that all my polaris/littleneck style poppers are SS. ;)

The floaters can be worked ridiculously slowly. They lie flat on top so you can give them a pop and just let them sit. Gives the fish lots of time to come up and eat them. I have a few very old Gibbs 3 1/2 ounce Polaris that sit flat on top. They are my favorites.

In my short time in the surf (not fishing as a whole); I have found the Tsunami Polaris style poppers to catch the crap out of fish, come with good hooks & split rings, whilst being cost effective. Plus it's my way of helping the US pay back the Trillion's (yes that's a T) we owe China.

 

For sinking models, Creek Chub Striper Strike 2100's in Black and SS sinking are all I use.

Just want to point out that you are not helping out the trade deficit by buying from China. The idea is to get them to buy American. Carry on :wave:.

Black eyes sink.  Only SS floaters I have are the really tiny ones, great for the back back bays in early spring.  All other spots/conditions I'm using sinkers.  Or wood.
