Surf Fishing Plugs #7: Pencil Popper


The top one is a store bought pencil popper. I included in the photo so you get the joke, which is there is a type of lure called a pencil popper. Mine is a pencil popper actually shaped like a pencil. LOL

I made this on a lark. It’s about 4 oz, white cedar and heavily tail weighted. I think it should be very fishable and I intend to make some real pencil poppers that are very fat like this one, but more traditionally shaped. ;-)

Honestly I’m not sure whether to gift this or fish it. I kind of want to see the reaction I get from other fishermen on the beach when I pull this thing out.

Ha! Love it! We’ll teach them there fishies to read and write or heaven help us!

Should work on the really smart fish. :-)

Brian: Trust me this will only work with fish that can read and write.


Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

Might work well on a “School of fish.” Nice work.

Brian, can I buy that pencil lure you made at the bottom? If not, can you make me one? Give me a quote and I want it with a center counter balance weight like the Gibbs pencil so it would ggo side to side easily….please. I need it for a project
