The Whopper Plopper 90 is the little brother of the River2Sea larger versions; but don't let its little package fool you, this bait has a serious little man's complex. Built with the same durable construction as the rest of the line with Xtra Strong components including hook hangers, wires, and X-Strong size 4 treble hooks. This smaller version is made tough to battle bigger foes. The Whopper Plopper 90 relies a lot more on quickness, with a unique sound more reminiscent of a buzz saw, it's tailor made for topwater fishing in high pressure situations and when the forage base is smaller.
What can I say. I'm a buzzbait addict. I'll throw one any time the water is above 60 degrees. The Whopper Plopper, while technically not a buzzbait, is the lure I throw when they're short striking or swirling on a buzzbait. Throw it out past the strikezone, crank it a few feet, and let it sit right on top of the target, crank it again, and they'll kill it. Drives the fish nuts. I had 3 fish over 6 pounds this past season on a Monkey Butt and a Terminator. Can't wait until Spring.
ProsGreat action Durable Gets the bites
ConsNeed one in a Natural bream color.
My go to lure
September 21, 2020
I have had a lot of success with this lure. I have caught some decent LMB (18"), Smallies and Walleye (22") using the loon color at night. My favorite is the 90 and second choice would be the 75. I have not had any issues with the 90 rolling or twisting. The pictures I posted were of the fish I caught with the 75.
ProsCatches fish period!
ConsPrice, it kills me if I lose a lure.

Fun lure to fish with
June 24, 2020
I've used a number of sizes and colors and these are fun lures to fish with. Even the largest size draws pike and bass. No muskie yet, but I'm sure it will. I'm not sure that color really matters for these. Not the best hook up percentage, but that is top water fishing. There are a number of decent videos out there for mods like using some shrink tube to hold the hooks out.

Draws violent typesetter strikes
May 6, 2020
Absolutely killer bait for catching big largemouth and smallmouth. Draws up some of the most violent typesetter strikes I've seen. They flat out destroy them! The 130 had produced some very large bass for be here in the Northeast.
ProsGreat quality components Only upgrade needed im is a Spring power swivel to stop line twist
ConsTwist line if you don't have swivel

Bass absolutely destroy it. I have heard countless numbers of people loving this bait.

My new favorite top water bait
Great and unique

Love the unique design of this lure. Fish can't resist the action but the pricetag is definitely on the higher end for lures in this market.
Whopper Plopper 90
March 7, 2020
I have had this lure for about a year and it has blown me away. The tail creates the noise and splash of an injured baitfish near the surface, drawing in bass. So far I have caught small and largemouth bass. This thing works well in clear and murky water from prespawn until late fall (Im in northern New Egland so it varies depending on where you live). I have gone out and bought 3 more in varying colors all work well.
Pros-very effective -splashes -rattles -variety of size and color.
Consif you are using a baitcaster it is fairly heavy so be mindful of backlash.

I like the whopper plopper it get some hellacious topwater blow ups! I wished they made a chrome colored one to mimic a minnow
All the benefits and less bulky
August 5, 2019
Still the same great action as the larger ones without the finicky retrieve of the WP90 (which I have not experienced but have heard complaints about constantly). Thit functions great, has good fit and finish and sharp hooks. Hard to complain.
Pros-Less bulky than the its big brothers while being as simple to operate. I prefer this as I live in OH and we just don't have the monsters that they have down south. -Less expensive than other WPs -Good F&F -Consistent action
