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.

Live Target 5-1/4” Twitch Minnow 3 pack
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.
made in USA
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.
