Sounds like a sexual lure...or maybe some kind of Hawaiian dance...or maybe a drug...
Truly? A hula popper is a surface water lure that drives bass, in particular, crazy.
Some hula poppers are comprised of two pieces - this makes the lure appear "broken" or "injured" to the fish. Yum.
Other hula poppers have multi-colored skirts that almost "dance" in the water.
My take is that the term "hula popper" serves to tantalize the fish. Using material that resembles a grass-skirt and a fluid popping motion (set in motion by the fisher-person), how can a big bass resist?
