Danny Surface Swimmer
The outstanding success of this plug to attract big bass is due primarily to the unique swimming action it creates. Unlike minnow type plugs that swim from the nose, the Danny pivots more from a fulcrum amidships in the plugs body. It has been said that this more closely represents larger bait that heavier fish seek out.
Guide To Fishing Gibbs Lures
A true "classic" among swimming plugs, the Danny derives its swimming action from a fulcrum point "amid ships" compared to the nose action of the smaller minnow type plugs. This unigue action simulates larger baitfish, which should be kept in mind when retrieving so that the plug is not overfished. Let the current do most of the work, and vary your retrieve 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 retrieve 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 retrieve, 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.

Great Striper Lure
February 25, 2015
Perfect size to cast from the surf or boat and it catches tons of stripers and blues when they are chasing bigger bait.

Classic lure
December 24, 2014
Obviously this is a classic and with good reason. The swimming action is very nice. The lure is surprisingly light for its size, so it doesn't cast as well as other, more dense lures (eg. Pencil popper). Still, well worth the space in your surf bag. As someone else said, the draw back is that blue fish chew up the lure a bit.

Love this Lure!
October 19, 2014
Was recently turned on to this lure, and boy do I love it! in one outing this Spring I was out catching other surf fisherman nearby by 2 or 3 times!! Only issue I have is that over time the bluefish beat it up with their sharp teeth, but they still keep hitting it, so whatever. I find the 2 1/4" size to have the best action vs. the 3 1/2" or 1 1/2", not sure why.
