Topper Stopper Versus the Whopper Popper!

3 posts in this topic

RK speaks very highly of the Mouldy's Topper Stopper and I have decided that I need to add one to my top water collection.On the same note, has anyone here tryed the Lee Lures Whopper Popper? They look really similar and I haven't seen either one in action so I just wanted to know your guys' thoughts.

Man am I ready for June 7th!

I have not tried either bait either, but I know that Dick Pearson also swears by the Topper Stopper. In fact, I believe he named it as one of his top ten "must have" baits.

Hiya -

I have both and use both. They're not as similar as one would think. The Topper Stopper is a little more subtle and just overall a more compact bait. It really is one of the baits I reach for first when it comes to topwaters. Not all of them are created equal - some just sound better than others do for some reason - but they all catch fish. The Whopper Popper sits a little higher in the water and has a little higher pitch to it as a result I think. They are definitely more stable in wind and waves just because they are bulkier.

If I were only going to get one I'd get the Topper, but that's personal bias for sure. Just a very high confidence bait for me. Lee makes some good stuff, and frankly, his baits are more durable for sure.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
