Megabass Pop Max - $19.99
Based on a hand-carved original by Yuki Ito, the Megabass PopMax ups the ante of the well-respected PopX with a larger body, and redesigned gill-system. In addition to the PopX's gill openings that allow for water to pass through and create life-like bubbles, the PopMax also features a unique gill system that consists of six water-intakes and a water chamber. Four intakes channel water through the gills and out to the sides, creating a unique splashing/chugging action on the surface, while two additional intakes channel water into the internal chamber and out below the PopMax. This generates enticing bubbles and a surface disturbance that bass can't resist. The intake system also acts like a lip, utilizing the water pressure that is pushed through the lower chamber to keep the lure from skipping across the water, and helping to keep the lure grounded so it can be worked faster. In addition, when the lure is paused, water flows out of the chamber, causing the PopMax to raise its head and survey its surroundings.
The PopMax can be worked like a conventional popper, and with gentle rod-tip action, the PopMax will roll-walk dynamically, combining the winning elements of both poppers and walking baits. For best results, fish the Megabass PopMax around rocky or riprap banks, over grass beds, or on shallow points early in the morning. Available in a variety of proven Megabass colors, Megabass also recommends fishing the PopMax on 18lb Megabass Dragon Call fishing line.
Comments: By far the most durable hard bait i've ever owned. Best popper I've ever used. Caught more bass on this one bait than any other bait. Have it in a pattern similar to GG gill and have had nights where I walk along the shore fancasting and will catch more than 30 largemouth in less than 2 hours. Alot of them may be squeekers, but there's always a few pigs mixed in. Buy one

Comments: Amazing.. I didn't want to like this bait as I personally think Megabass charges too much for a bait. Boy I was wrong though! First outing and got 4.25lb bass out in Northern Illinois lake, which is brutally tough due to bucket heads. Great great action paired with highest quality paint job. I will definitely need to try out the xpod jr as well! oh and it casts SUPER! Give it a shot if you're not close to me ;)

Comments: Great bait! it pop very good, but it walks effortlessly. You get what you pay for with this bait. First time out got a 4lber. This pooper will put other poppers to shame.

Comments: Never leave without one tied on. This the best popper yet. The paint scheme, water ducts (gills), and size make this lure an awesome topwater lure. I use a Gill mostly here in Maryland and will pop the lure hard to make sure it makes a loud chugging noise. I have several bass trying to attack this lure when I fish. For tournaments I use this in the morning to get bass in quick.
Comments: The best top water popper that ever will be made..Im catching bass after bass of big south fl largemouths some as soon as it hits the water...i got the chartruse back bass color and its killing them..best paint...best multi action popper on the market...

Comments: GREAT lure! I have used it on about 5 trips and I have caught several big bass and a ton of otheres. The biggest I have caught on it so far was a 6lb'er. I have the PM Gill color and it comes with a chartruse trailer feather and it just gets hits, its that simple.
