great bait, you'll love it. You choose the right pattern imo.

Very durable bait too, not a one fish wonder like some of the other topwaters.

Just an awesome bait. When we were up at Operation Muskie, Chad Cain threw on all day, I mean ALL day. He boated two fish over 40 and had one hit that was a monster, but no hooks. The bait is very versitile in the fact that you can work it really loud, or slow it down and make it more subtle. I went out and got one immediately after that outing. Will probably be getting another in the future.

Forgot to mention the other very awesome tip that Chad put us onto using the Humper. If you have a fish hump up/wake behind the lure, instead of speeding the lure up like most normally do, try this. Just give the reel one quick turn of the reel handle. All it takes. As soon as you do that, the lure just makes a quick little sputter and then back to normal sound. Chad did this with the two fish that he caught and as soon as he did the quick turn with the reel handle, both fish clobbered the bait!

Just got back from the lake and had one just try to cream the humper. Don't know how it missed, but it sure did! frown

It is a topwater bait that has a blade on the head of the bait that rotates. On the rear of the bait, there is another smaller blade that also rotates. There is also a Super humper that has a rubber tail off the back end. I don't like these as much as the regular humper. They are very loud baits and can be used at anytime. They ride the waves well so it isn't necessary to have flat water to throw it. As stated above, they are built like a tank. Pay a little more for them than other baits, but they are well worth the price.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
