The Glass Minnow Popper, from LiveTarget's Baitball series, replicates the appearance of a school of bait with highly realistic images superimposed into a single topwater popper lure body. When bass are feeding on shad atop the water's surface, a popper sure is hard to beat, the action is very similar to a struggling prey and represents an easy meal for the predator. Continuing with the concept of opportunistic tendencies, predators often attack a school of bait fish because they are simply more likely to experience success in their hunt for food. The Live Target Glass Minnow Popper mimics a small group of baitfish as they frantically flee from across the surface of the water away predators. Implementing a standard popper retrieve with small twitches of the rod's tip followed by a brief pause, anglers will be able to more accurately mirror the behavior of baitfish and consequently appeal to predators. Poppers are really great from the spawn all the way until late fall. They are often used to mimic shad during the shad spawn which occurs during the summer months. Shad often spawn in super shallow water which allows bass to attack and pin them using the shore. Their only option is to flee upward commonly leaping out of the water before meeting their ultimate demise. A topwater popper really does the trick during this short window afforded by the spawning shad. We offer the LiveTarget BaitBall Glass Minnow Popper in two sizes: 65T and 75T - please see the chart below for detailed specs on each model.
The schooling formation of baitfish is one of Mother Nature's most complex fights for survival. It is the eternal "fight or flight" law of nature.Safety is in the sanctuary of a BaitBall.
