Whopper Plopper

Haven't heard much about the Whopper Plopper this spring.  Last year that lure was so hot I couldn't find any before my April trip.  Was this a case of a lure that caught more fisherman than fish, or is this a viable option for spring bass on Table Rock?  Are we just waiting for conditions to change before the Whopper heats up?

As soon as it stays up to 60 consistently I'm going to have the small and a large one on. I can't wait to throw them. There's just something about them and they're easy to throw. I caught alot of fish on them last year. The smaller caught more but the big one gets you excited for that bigger bass. So much easier to throw than a buzzbait at least for me.

The "plopper craze" actually didn't kick off until last October after James Watson won the BASS Central Open catching most of his fish on a plopper. After word got out what he (and Clunn) were throwing they really took off and were somewhat hard to find. But like others have said water is still a bit cool for topwater action. Shouldn't have had a problem finding them last April.

have caught bass in 49 degree water during a snowstorm on a buzzbait, 

i don't fish TR much, but recently they have been biting a buzz on Bull in 52-57 degree water, yes, they are eating the plopper too, but not as good as the buzzer

my 2 biggest bass of 2014 were caught first week of april on a homemade buzzbait, 54 degree water

We have success with the Red Fin and buzz baits.  Does the Whopper offer something more than the two of these?  Those Whoppers have a hefty price tag so curious what the advantage is. 

more big bites from my experience using them, I don't recall  catching a bunch short fish with a 130 plopper ,
