Guide To Fishing Gibbs Lures
More commonly referred to as the "Bottle Plug" this is "Derby Special" due to the "Derby" winners it has been credited with. Not being encumbered with a metal lip allows this plug to really reach the "off beach" rips. The Casting Swimmer is more at home in turbulent water and fast current. William "Doc" Muller best described the correct technique when he coined the phrase "stay in contact with the plug". Pay close attention to what's happening out there and keep the plug working by maintaining tight lines and a steady retrieve as current ebbs and flows. This means you speed up retrieve on wave fronts and slow down on the backside.
