Damn, I had no idea those had been around for that long. Those bass used to hit that damn hula popper so hard it would sometimes look like a Great White 'breaching' when they'd get a seal.

I used to have a jitterbug but I lost them so many times due to weeds that I finally just gave up using them. I tried to use the weed guards on the hooks, but that ended up just not allowing me to set the hook and the fish would throw it easily.
