 I also found it hard to believe some of the stories I have been told in past times re whiting on popps. I became a believer when i nailed a couple of 40/42cm YFW on poppers at Shark bay - Good fun all right, cant wait to do it again. Well done mate.

Well done mate. Ive been reading quite a bit on whiting on poppers and are now keen to try it but im not sure where to try metro. Im not that keen on the river because im not too keen on eating stuff out of there but whiting taste so nice. Is there any places in the ocean where i can try?.

how many did you get and what poppers are you using?

There were 4 of us using 2 rods and we ended up getting 60 something that day on poppers and stickbaits. Converted some into reds, jacks and trout a few days later as well. The popper was a cheapy and the stick bait was a Atomic something I think.

Yet to try it myself but ive caught some good whiting over at pengoes on bait, i always used to see thumpers off the edge of the sandbar when walking over there to surf
