We caught up with Elite Series pro John Murray for a 101 segment on how to fish the Whopper Plopper. As John explains, the lure sounds like a flat tire on the retrieve, which calls fish in and produces bites from a better class of fish. He discusses the basics of retrieve speed and matching lure size to the conditions, as well as the go-to rod, reel, and line setup for distance casting and hooking up.
