The Riptide range features the exclusive Nomad Design Matrix Metal Plate, HD-ABS, Gorilla Through Wire and HD Foam systems on models throughout the range. The floating version has the perfect balance required to achieve that dynamic, strike enducing ‘S’ shaped swimming motion.
A long sweep of the rod tip makes the head duck under with a splash, then as the water flows over the lures body a seductive body roll and ‘S’ wave action is imparted sub-surface. The sinking variety has the internal weights placed to maximize casting but also to allow the lure to be retrieved with a sub surface walk the dog action, which sees the lure able to turn nearly 180 degrees when retrieved slowly with a walk the dog “twitching” rod tip action.
All Riptide lures are finished with a super tough triple layer clear coat finish, applied by hand during production, which makes the paint and finish super tough and durable. All Nomad Design Lures come fitted with the highest quality super strong BKK hooks, chosen to balance perfectly with each lure, and provide exceptional swimming actions and hookup rates for all species. Nomad Design Lures can be fished straight out of the box with confidence.
OutCast Lures Pencil Popper
The erratic motion of our take on this classic surface plug is irresistible to predator fish. Replicating the fleeting escape of a wounded bait fish, pencil poppers draw big strikes and solid hook-ups. Styled with our unique color patterns and high end terminal hardware, the OutCast Pencil Popper casts like a fantasy and brings home the bacon.

Outcast Lures Polaris Popper
This is our FAVORITE polaris type plug at FISH Northeast. Casts long and makes the perfect splash without a lot of effort. Jeff swears by it in the Canal!
Hand turned and finished in MA!
You know what they say about a plug with a big head. If its the Outcast Polaris they’re talking about, we’re certain most of the comments will be how far they cast and how the fish fight each other to get the first bite. This tuned weighted traditional body type delivers the goods with heavenly light yet long range castibility, and frenzied surface scattering action on retrieve. Just don’t expect to retrieve to far. The fish won’t let it pass.
Medium (~3 oz)
Large (~4 oz)
OutCast Lures Hybrid Popper
This is one of the hottest Cape Cod Canal lures to be introduced in recent memory. Built by hand locally, they cast incredibly long and create a “wake” with the narrower tip on retrieve. Different. Deadly.
Sunrise Mackerel is a FISH Northeast EXCLUSIVE color! Available in 3 sizes.
The Hybrid body is a marvel of art & science. Big targets draw big fish, yet can be clumsy to cast. Not with the hybrid. Perfectly weighted to deliver outstanding casting performance, and rotund enough to push a lot of water as it skims the surface with turbulence and temptation. The fan favorite is the Squid finish, with its exaggerated big holographic eyes and splattered ink finish.

Big Bite Baits - 7" Suicide Shad
New Soft Plastic for Elite in 2020! Realistic detailing and a unique tail design will make this a “go-to” swimbait!
The Suicide Shad swimbait has already become a proven fish catcher. It features a super thin tail section and round paddle tail that will swim with the slowest retrieve. Also, the tail section has a painted fork tail to represent the ultimate baitfish profile. A solid head is another key feature of the Suicide Shad which allows better rigging on a jighead to last longer than traditional hollow body swimbaits. This solid head keeps your bait running properly with less time required for rigging or gluing to keep the swimbait up on the head. The Suicide Shad also features a belly hook slot to allow for easy Texas rigging to prevent the plastic body from “balling” up on your hook when Texas rigged.
