Darter
A Gibbs original which was designed for fast moving rips and currents of Long Island and Cape Cod. Years of proven productivity have made this a classic in all fisheries up and down the coast.
Guide To Fishing Gibbs Lures
A "classic " in the salt water plug offerings, brought back by popular demand in its most sought after sizes and colors. This plug is more effective when cast in the current and immediately "jump started" with a moderate jerk of the rod tip to get the plug to bite and start its descent. Follow this with a slow, steady retrieve as the plug works from side to side for approximately ten to fifteen feet; then return your rod to a forward position pointed at the plug and allow the Darter to float back to the surface. Your line will need to be slacked to allow this, but be ready as strikes often occur as the plug is fluttering to the top. Fished correctly, this plug should swim beneath the surface with an erratic left-to-right motion as it is retrieved. This has been Stan Gibbs' most effective retrieve, but as with most of Gibbs lures, you can experiment with different speeds and rod motions, finding another that is better suited in other circumstances.

Good darter for moderate surf and rips. But I prefer the Super Strike Zig Zag when I'm trying to accomplish the same profile.
