Will trout or redfin take poppers?

Hey guys i was just wondering if anyone had caught redfin or trout on poppers. Ive never tried them in freshwater and thought they might do well over snaggy or shallow areas. I dont see why they wouldnt work and was wondering if anyone has seen evidence of this working?

redfin will take them pretty much whenever, trout in my experience only at night. I've only caught 2 trout in about 5 years of fishing for them on a popper (bassday crystal popper - 30 and 50 size from memory, one on each).
