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.

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.
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.
Gibbs Casting Swimmer
More commonly referred to as the "Bottle Plug" this is our "Derby Special" due to "derby" winners it has been credited with. No metal lip allows fthis plug to really reach the "off beach" rips.
FISH Northeast Tip-In still water, keep this plug moving steadily since the nose creates the action. The bottle plug needs far less effort fished in a current. A great plug to put a teaser in front of for added appeal.
Gibbs Lures NeedleFish
The needlefish is a surf casting classic. Initiating a sand eel or similar narrow bodied bait fish, a slow, steady retrieve in shallower water can draw explosive strikes. Fishes even better with a dropper fly 20” or so ahead of the plug. A must have plug for Striper hunting after dark. Full wood construction with heavy duty components and VMC hooks.
