Sebile Magic Swimmer
Sebile's most renowned lure, the Magic Swimmer is a revolutionary design that undulates its jointed body and presents a very natural swimming action even during steady retrieves.
Popular with anglers worldwide and used to attract all species in all types of water, its natural swimming action is just too much for most gamefish to resist. The Magic Swimmer is all about the tapered nose and humpbacked head which slices through the water, making turbulence first on one side, then the other.
All models (Floating, Sinking and Fast Sinking) are stable swimmers and equally effective whether cast or trolled
Sebile Stick Shadd
Offered in a wide variety of sizes, buoyancies, and colors the Stick Shadd is one of Sebile's most innovative designs.
Sinking & Fast-Sinking models are perhaps the most versatile overall because they can be used at any depth form top to deep. Suspending versions are ideal as jerkbaits when predatory fish prefer their prey to sit horizontal and not rise or sink at all.
Floating models are key when targeting surface feeding or shallow fish while Rockett models are key for distance casting and strong current situations.
A proven surf fishing classic! The Northbar Bottledarter can be fished on dead calm nights or in a current. Realistic eyes, durable finishes, and the best hardware from Krok, VMC, and Wolverine. Keep the line tight on the plug and let the unique head shape provide a swimming action giant stripers can't resist! A must have in any night fishing surf bag.
NorthBar Tackle Flying Squid
The flying squid is an improved pencil popper with features not seen before on production surface lures. The fins at the head end allow for greater distance when casting into a head wind because of their stabilizing influence which virtually eliminates wobble and therefore cuts way down on wind resistance. The fins also cause substantially more turbulence when the lure is worked, due to the increased square inches of lure body slapping the surface water as it is “popped”, and pencil poppers are all about commotion on the surface. You will quickly notice how much easier it is to work this lure, and how much value the fins add to the total package. This lure is the result of over two years of flight studies, r&d, and prototyping and I’m very happy to finally get it in your hands.

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 this plug to really reach the "off beach" rips.
Elite Tackle 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.

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.

One of Jeff’s favorites. Bone. Swap out the front treble for a #2 4x VMC and remove the rear. Now walk dog.
Fished properly, this plug draws vicious strikes.
Gibbs Polaris Popper 1.5 OZ
A classic wooden popper the cupped head creates a nice “bloop” with a forward splash that attracts gamefish from a distance
The key here is to vary the speed, even letting it come to a rest on occasion. Impart only enough rod tip action to splash the water and create the audible gurgle. The most common error in fishing Poppers is to overdue the rod action. Only a twitch is needed as sound will travel under water.
