    Funny you should mention the Deadly Combo - end of August I caught my first fish (a rat red) for that combo way back in a tight creek on the South River. That was my first saltwater popping cork fish. The very next morning I caught my PB old drum on a Blabbermouth/DOA airhead. That was also my first old drum on a popping cork. What a weekend! lol

    I admit this video has me planning to tie on the cork with a DOA or at least the vudu that I have!

    I'd like an opinion on ICM's question though about using in a current. If the current is strong enough that shrimp often doesn't fall much (against current) or is going too fast if with the current.

    The area hes fishing rarely ever has a lot of current. But, when fishing areas with heavy current I prefer the DOA 2.75 over the regular DOA shrimp as it is heavier and sinks a little faster. The other alternative is to take the hook off of a regular DOA shrimp and put it on a jighead. It fishes really well this way.

    Something I observed in your video are you're not fishing strong currents. Do you think that matters?
    Do popping corks work better in calm or fast currents?
    What length rod is better for throwing a popping cork?
    Thanks ....ICM
    We fish them in strong current and no current and both ways catch fish. The cork rod on my yak is very versatile. I might use it to drift past fish holding in current, pop it on fish in slack water, or even just leave it sitting in rod holder and dragging behind me and all approaches catch fish. I like a rod with some backbone for the cork as it helps with casting, popping, and hook setting. A medium action rod with a fairly stiff tip is best in my opinion and as I may tie a leader as long as 4ft I like to have a rod that is 7ft or more.

    The zman trout eye jig head has been absolutely lethal for me this year when rigging with a DOA and they fit on perfectly and very tight so I'm not having to adjust the plastic every few casts.
