Iconic topwater returns with smaller size
FORT SMITH, Ark. (July 12, 2018) – Anglers in the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf all know the Cotton Cordell® Pencil Popper™ is an automatic bite enticer for stripers, bluefish, tuna, amberjack and redfish. Freshwater anglers too have enjoyed Pencil Popper success on largemouth bass, pike plus inland and saltwater stripers. The decades old design is still top of the game creating a huge surface commotion that attracts explosive strikes from both schoolers and loners. As with all fishing, sometimes downsizing reinvigorates the fish that may be over fished or simply ready to attack something that mimics smaller baitfish.
The new 4.5-inch, ¾-ounce Pencil Popper is designed to complement the topwater bait inventory in the tackle box and is easily cast using lighter spinning tackle. This gives the angler the option of casting one of the best topwaters ever, in a smaller package.
Like the big brother 6-inch Pencil Popper, this smaller version casts for distance with a weighted tail that also contributes to the topwater action. At rest the bait sits almost vertically, appearing as a wounded baitfish. The retrieve creates a splash that captures the attention of game fish from a larger distance. A popular feature of the Pencil Popper is its ease of “walking the dog” as compared to some other topwater baits.
