Thanx Kev, I know what you mean, thats what happend with me. The hawg never came back to the popper so I threw the Yum wooly hawgtail out there and on that first cast I hooked em! Oh yeah I almost forgot, the second fish I caught had the Yum down his throat and swallowed it. Do you know if they just spit back out or do they digest it?? These fish sure do put on a great show for ya.
