Gibbs Lures Polaris Popper One of the all-time favorites in the Gibbs product line and fished in a more traditional “Popper” fashion, other than a Pencil Popper or Darter. The key to fishing this Gibbs Polaris is to vary the speed and even letting the plug come to rest on occasion. Remember to only use a slight rod tip action to splash a moderate amount of water, which will create a gurgling noise. Another method, if the fish are on top, as the plug hits the water continuously shakes the plug very fast. This will make a tremor effect in the water that always calls the bigger fish to the top.
