HAND-CARVED CEDAR LURES
Try a slow troll with the Darting Swimmers when you are not casting them. Bucky, Junior, Poppy & Surf Dawg can be fished as pencil poppers by reversing the hook. Surf Dawg and Dipper are especially good for casting into surf or wind. Work all lures with a slow/erratic retrieve for best results.
The Floating Poppers will float face up. Retrieve them with a twitch, a pause and another twitch. If there is a surface blitz, work them faster. A small piece of pork rind often will produce added strikes. Because they are tail-weighted, the floating poppers will cast long in all conditions.
Jointed Needlefish Swimmers
The Jointed Needlefish Swimmers will cast long in all conditions. Work them at varying speeds, so they will bend and undulate in the water. These lures slow-troll extremely well; tend the rod and twitch sharply occasionally. Especially when trolling, a bit of sandworm on the tail hook produces additional strikes.
