Tie articulated baitfish poppersto offer predatory fish a vulnerable easy meal.
Design by Martin Bawden.
TheHowitzer is a next-generation softfoam popperhead that provides new options for tying articulated baitfish poppers.
The Howitzer imitates the head of a small minnow (or baitfish) that is splashing and sipping at the surface of the water. It's designed with a deep recess at the back of the head so that an articulated body and tail of a minnow can be embedded seamlessly into the back of the head. As a result, the body of the minnow hangs down in the water (roughly at a 45-degree angle) and moves enticingly in a positionthat can be seen by predatory fish from a long distance and offers them an irresistible profile and an easy opportunity for a meal!
