Small poppers

 I have thrown the ss popper, and it works, but about 1/2 oz is the sweet spot for my back bay rod. The top knock 5/8 version casts perfectly, but I’d like to have the option of a small popper.

Creek Chub 1/2 oz is a little killer of a plug. Has been for decades. I'd buy it in chrome and white. Cast like a little bullet too. It will need a hook swap!

Not really a popper, but the Gibbs 1/2 oz Pencil Popper has done good work for me in the back bays and tidal creeks in Long Island Sound.

The Smack-its are awesome, but if you want wood, I used a couple RM poppers out back that killed them. I think they’re around .5

Creek chub, yes. Why didn't I think of these. I probably have a dozen of the knuckle head Jr plugs. Great plug but you must change the hooks. I lost big fish to hooks that were straightened out.
