Leland -

I was really amazed at the power of attraction your popper design has for coho salmon in the salt. Even as Brian was demonstrating it for us mid-day, sunshine, dead tide, coho would appear from nowhere and be silly with pursuit. Of course as soon as I broke out the video camera I jinxed it. I can only imagine what it was like the weekend you guys hit the straits.

I have no doubt that stripers would jump all over them when they are in a surface feeding mood. We'll catch it on video!

Say guys,

I have fished Casey quite successfully with poppers and also down south beyond the ferry terminal along that long beach that's strewn with driftwood.

I have also fished my poppers for silvers, searuns and, occassionaly, blackmouth at Bush, Lincoln Park, the Narrows, Sekiu (with doublespey), Neah, Kopachuck, Joemma, Purdy, PNP and a bunch of other places that shall remain unnamed.

Maybe Brian will help me get my popper up on this site.
