The FATHEAD is sealed against water for maximum durability, and painted. Weighted perfectly for optimum presentation! The 1.5 oz version uses a VMC Permasteel 2/0 belly hook and a dressed 5/0 VMC siwash hook, the 3 Oz version uses VMC Permasteel 4X strong 4/0 Belly hook, 4/0 treble tail hook.
150 lb Rosco swivels and 2X strong 90lb Rosco split rings.
Oversized reverse Holographic eyes for maximum effect! Stainless Steel hardware where possible and through wired for maximum strength!
Perfect for school blue fin tuna, stripers, or LARGE bluefish!
Proper presentation of this popper is to cast then twitch the rod tip while retrieving,
this will allow the lure to "walk the dog" erratically from side to side.
Vary your retrieve, slow for stripers, faster for bluefish. Digs and throws water!
I like a very erratic action with these poppers, and don't be afraid to rip them fast either!
"Sorry I don't have any pictures but the Friday am (4-6) fishing was so HOT that I didn't have time. I was not going to kill stripers for a picture. I caught & released 3. 30" 32-33" and 34-35".
All on your yellow Fathead Jr I purchased @ the MassBass show. I couldn't get the popper out fast enough! I got down to XXXXX at 4:15am and was 1 of 2 people there and NOBODY ELSE and TAILS SLAPPING EVERYWHERE! It quieted down at the slack and then the big ones came on the east bound. There was Tinker Mack ALL OVER the place. I had a bass chasing them at my feet!."
"As for the fathead, awesome, the thing casts a mile and catches fish like mad.
It's running a close second as my new favorite lure this season"
"I think a while back I had asked you about the eel color, its my favorite, and it killed em!!! Took 3 fish the other night, 18-25 lbs. I haven't had that kind of action on a popper at night ever!!!! Made my uncle run to Dicks B&T to get one, unfortunately for him they only had the smaller sizes. He landed a few smaller fish on the smaller fat head the next day."
"GREAT LURES USED IN PANAMA LAST YEAR, CAUGHT ROOSTERS AND CUBERA WITH THEM"
