The One and Only. Big stripers absolutely destroy this simple, but effective, popper.
At FISH Northeast we walk the Doc!
Musky Mania's 9" Doc and 7" Lil' Doc have been one of the HOTTEST plugs for East Coast Stripers for over 10 years. For a long time, the unpainted "Bone" colored Doc's were some what of a mystery. Over the past couple years, as tackle shops have begun to stock them, the name and reputation has grown. These "Walk The Dog" top water plugs create a violent side to side action, and unmatched LOUD rattle unlike anything Striper have ever seen. Striped Bass literally can not ignore them! These lures come equipped with stainless steel hardware, and 4/0 VMC Perma Steel hooks able to hold up to the Saltwater environment.
Current Sniper Walk Hi-Pitch Pencil Lure
Featuring an aerodynamic shape, the CURRENT SNIPER Walk can be easily worked in a walk-the-dog motion. The glass fiber construction emits a high-pitch rattling sound that is sure to get the attention of any fish. With through-wire construction and high-durability 3x hooks, the CURRENT SNIPER Walk is sure to stand up to aggressive topwater bites.
Nomad Design - Chug Norris Popper 120mm (4.75in)
Chug Norris Popper 120 - 4.75"
The Chug Norris 120mm popper is super easy to pop, it hangs in the water and won’t “pull out” when popped. This popper is all about being easy to use, and it does not require much effort to get a very big pop due to the unique body shape and hydrodynamic design. It can also be worked with subtle small pops and twitched across the surface. Whatever application, or species, you will find the Chug Norris popper one of the easiest to use and most effective poppers.
Chug Norris Popper 1.5oz with internal rattle and through wire construction.
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.
Yo-Zuri 3D Inshore Twitchbait
The 3D Inshore Twitch Bait is a slow sinking lipless hard bait with excellent balance for quick starting action around cover. Designed to be fished in shallow water the 3D Inshore Twitch Bait is an exceptional choice for fishing grass flats, oyster bars or working troughs along the beach. Yo-Zuri’s patented 3D prism finish sends out flashes of light which fish can see from a great distance. The internal hologram sheet never wears off and keeps on flashing even when the clear body is scratched. The deep bodied shape mirrors a variety of the baitfish that top inshore predators target including Threadfin Herring, Pilchards and Peanut Bunker. The strategic weight position and flat sides give the 3D Inshore Twitch Bait an erratic darting action on a twitch and pause retrieve. Put it all together and you have a high quality saltwater Japanese hard bait at an extraordinary price point!

Gibbs "The Original" Danny Surface Swimmer 3.5 OZ
The outstanding ability of this plug to attract big bass is due to the unique swimming action it creates. Unlike minnow type plugs that swim from the nose, the Danny pivots from a fulcrum in the center of its body.
Let the current do most of the work, and vary your retriever as you move the bait through different types of water. An occasional jerk of the rod tip that causes the plug to spurt or splash lightly can be very effective. At night however, a steadier retriever is more desirable. Fine-tuning should be restricted to the stainless wire eye of the plug, leaving the pan lip in its original shape. Bend the eye up slightly to obtain a deeper retriever, and down for more surface action. Unlike our direct tie recommendation with other plugs, the Danny will work better from a black Duo Lock snap for a freer swimming action. A swivel is not needed. Remember, keep those hooks sharp and re-tie frequently to keep fresh line at the business end of your efforts.
Elite Tackle Tip. This is a big plug for big bass that excels around rocky shorelines, especially at night. This is a plug that has historically been modified with an eel skin covering the plug for even more big fish appeal.
Yo-Zuri Surface Cruiser Pencil Popper
The Yo-Zuri Surface Cruiser Lures are versatile pencil poppers that can be fished with a stop and pop, walk the dog, or skipping action on a fast retrieve.
