The Googan Squad Blooper is a topwater popper that will crash and splash it's way across the water's surface. Designed with a cupped mouth for maximum splash and “bloop” sounds, it features two needlepoint hooks with a feathered back hook. The belly of each Blooper is outfitted with a set of Rumble Strips, which increases drag and surface disturbance.
Point your rod tip down and apply quick snaps to your rod tip to get your Blooper to sing loudly and call in fish from a distance. This technique will help resemble the action of a fleeing baitfish being chased to the surface of the water.
For a slower and more subtle approach, make short sweeps with your rod tip allowing the bait to gently plop at the surface of the water. This will help you mimic the action of a baitfish feeding at the water's surface. The cooler the water, the longer the pauses.
Line: Googan Squad Monofilament 8-15lb or 15-30lb Braided Line Rod: Medium power casting or spinning rod Reel: Casting or spinning reel with a moderate retrieval speed
Pro Tips: Use the Googan Squad Blooper when fishing tight to cover or shaded areas. The ability to barely move this bait and create a subtle plop will help you get bites from fish holding tight to cover.
The Googan Squad Hummer will create a buzz the second it hits the water. The Hummer is a Googan Squads take on the classic buzzbait. Each Hummer features a free-spinning propeller blade that puts off the look, feel, and sound needed to call in the fish. Every Googan Squad Hummer has the bait's weight painted to the head for easy identification.
The Googan Squad Hummer has slotted holes stamped into each blade for an increased surface disturbance. A hand-tied rubber skirt is clinched around an ultra-sharp Mustad hook adding to the Hummer's liveliness. And finally, to help prevent dreaded line slippage, each Googan Squad Hummer is topped off with a rubber band line keeper.

Pro Tips:Use the Googan Squad Hummer to create reaction strikes. Reel over schooling baitfish in areas you notice bass feeding actively.

Armed with more noise than New Year's Eve, the Revolver puts fish on notice. When the mondos move in, the rotating fin at its center paints the hooks as the clear target. The body jitters as the fin rotates - adding visual action to the chaos.
Topwater plopping baits have been around for decades. We made major innovations to evolve this category for the new millennium. Flattening the tail and distributing the weight ensures the Revolver lands upright on every cast. This puppy won't roll over, no matter how it's retrieved. Tie this beaut on and stop chasin'. Start catchin'.
The Googan Squad Poppin' Filthy Frog is designed to splash, spray and spit your way into a bite. A cupped mouth helps you ''walk the dog'', keeping the bait in the zone longer. The 100% weedless body also allows you to fish it in the thickest slop, while the protective tubing around the hook keeps water out. And, an internal weight improves casting distance while assuring upright landing every cast.
The Googan Squad Hound is a tight walking topwater bait with a cupped mouth for added splash as you bring this puppy in. It's equipped with three sticky sharp, black nickel treble hooks, with a feathered back hook to help fool fish and keep them pinned.
While at rest, the Googan Squad Hound will sit with it's backside down, which gives the back feathered treble hook a chance to sit just below the water's surface for added yumminess to nearby fish. Built with internal one-knocker style rattles, the Googan Squad Hound makes plenty of noise to draw in a big bite.
Available in a variety of Googan approved colors that add to this doggy's swagger. Fish the Googan Squad Hound around schooling fish, across points, shallow water flats, and any other open water areas where bass are ambushing baitfish.
Pro Tips: Throw the Googan Squad Hound when bass are actively feeding on baitfish, especially during cloudy days or low light situations. It's best to leave a bit of slack in your line when working the bait, so when you pop your rod tip down it allows the Hound to effectively glide back and forth. Over the top of submergent grass, shallow points and shell bars, and shallow flats are all great spots to chuck the Googan Squad Hound.
