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.

Hand Line by New England Hand Lines
The Barnett family of Kingston, MA makes a traditional hand line that has been used for hundreds of years off the coastal towns of New England. Hand lines like these were used to catch ground fish such as flounder with a baited hook and weight. Additionally, they were used to jig up mackerel, cod, haddock, pollock or squid with artificial lures and jigs. Crabbing at the local pier or by boat is another use.
These tools work as great as they did a century ago. These are hand crafted from 3/4" oak and will last for decades. Get one for the kids, the kayak, or for some old school fishing fun!
We are proud to offer this locally crafted product; especially considering the important place the simple hand line has in our local history!
An effective and easy to fish soft bait for lighter tackle. Great colors and the single hook makes a safe release easy. Ideal for inshore species such as Striped Bass, False Albacore, Bonita, weakfish, redfish, trout, and, everyone’s favorite, Snook!

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 "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 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.
Berkley Fireline Smoke
Micro Dyneema line optimized for spinning reels. Smoke color. Fireline has been on the market since 1996 and has loyal users across both fresh and saltwater.
A classic that should be in every tackle bag! One of the most versatile metal lures ever. For freshwater or salt, multiple sizes and colors-a proven lure for virtually any sports fish.
Eagle Claw TroKar TK160 Hooks Swimbait
Sebile Magic Swimmer

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
