25.0 lb. Snapping Turtle caught by Dennis Huskins fishing on Monday August 14, 2017 at 14:36 near Blairstown in Warren County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a size 80 Whopper Popper a Topwater Bait

You all know my love affair with this place. For me its all shore fishing and it is limited. Fortunately the fish flow in waves to feed, so you can hang in one area awhile and not get all the fish to ignore you and your lures. This day I wanted something big with my noisy Whopper Popper. This lure has gotten a lot of Hype and to me its a bit to noisy. But I'm still trying it out. You got to avoid the weeds however. Well I get a top water suck in hit like a slow moving log with a wiggle. My test rod held up and I worked this barge through the weed clusters to finally see a Snapper on a top water lure???? No way at the shore line could I get my lure back. He snapper a thick branch I used to try a distraction. Bye Bye Whopper Popper.
