Here is my favorite Carpenter BC-Y lure.
the lure has slightly rear balanced like Suicidal Sardine. When there were no surface action while I fished bluefin in Cape Cod a few years ago, I decided to test small 40g Carpenter gamma lure. After retrieval, it took stand-up position. It didn't look right. But I had a huge swirl behind the lure after a few more cast. I cast again to that direction and I hooked up a big bluefin with this tiny lure.
Since then, Carpenter gamma lures became my favorite lures,especially when bluefin become picky.
For some reason, we have more success with popper style lures than stickbait in NC unjlike in Cape Cod. But you never know.

I don't know why. Popper worked in Cape Cod a few years ago, but stickbait work much better in recent years.
Thanks Guys !
Kil ,I wonder why tuna respond so well to poppers in Nc and not so well in cape cod ?
Scott said Heru Skipjack got hit a lot in NC yesterday.
I casted Heru Skipjack Cubera, pencil poppers or FCL HRTM200 for giant in Prince Edward Island last fall. They all worked, but it looked giant turned on when I cast Heru Wahoo and hit every time I cast it.
FCL HRTM200 worked great for giant in 2010, but I didn't see any special magic in 2011.
