Popper advice

How long should I let a pooper lay there before I give it a twitch?
I've never really messed with them.
I go with the minnows. They're a no-brainer. Make 'em swim, haul in your fish.
Poppers should be funner for me, I think.

What fish are you targeting?

Where are you fishing?

What time of year and day?

What's the water temperature?

There are many variables that need to be taken into account in order to properly answer your question. In a nutshell, I let the fish tell me what they want from a retrieve. Find what works in a given situation and stick with it until something changes.
