The Northbar Tackle Bottledarter is extremely versatile and can be fished a variety of different ways.
  • On those flat calm nights, the Bottledarter can be swam on the surface much like a metal lip. A painfully slow retrieve makes a nice wiggle and produces a surface wake that is sure to entice some nice fish.
  • On open beach without much current, a slow steady retrieve works very well. Mix in a few twitches of the rod tip to really make the lure dart.
  • The Bottledarter lure loves current rips. Cast this lure out and just take up the slack to remain in contact with the lure as it sweeps. Every once and a while take a full crank on the reel while lifting your rod tip (you will feel the lure really swim). Reel down slowly while keeping tension on the line. Repeat this retrieve and hold on!
  • Loaded with 10cc's of liquid. Northbar's testing shows that a loaded Bottledarter casts very well. The action is slightly different than unloaded. The lure has more darting action and has already taken some very nice fish!

By far one of my best producers of all time. I caught my biggest fish on the lure and I have a lot of confidence in it. I use it in the rips and when its moderate-rough out. A+

Work-horse

In rough conditions, heavy surf or current & sweep, this plug casts well, digs in, and maintains it's action. As the name suggests, it combines the wiggle of a bottle plug with the more erratic side to side darting of a darter - especially with current, I'll maintain a slow retrieve with occasional rod twitches to get the darting action. In waves, vary your retrieve speed to match the wave action and maintain good contact with the plug at all times - speed up when the plugs being pushed by a wave, and slow down when the wave is receding and pulling against the plu. Big profile to match big bait or cull larger stripers. One of my favorite go-to plugs every Fall - rough water, big bait, big fish. Great value pricing, comes with solid hard-ware and doesn't generally need any modifications, though some do. Northbar provides a good array of fish-catching colors and shades. Mackerel and yellow have already been reliable producers for me over the pst 3-4 seasons, with blurple and white (with light pink haze stripe) getting added to the mix this coming season.
Pros:
profile and action hardware keeps digging and working in rough conditions wide range of colors including the proven standards fish-catching

Northbar one of the greatest spots on the east coast and this lure has become one of those best as well. a very unique design incorporating a bottle plug with the heads cut off to act like a darter. These plugs swim like no other that a passing fish can't resist but strike. every time.

Awesome plug!
December 31, 2013
This plug really shines in heavy surf conditions. It digs in perfectly and has a wide wobble typical of larger baitfish. It casts beautifully and is one of my go to plugs when a stiff wind is in my face and the surf is really churned up. One thing I really like about this plug is that it comes stock with Krok swivels, VMC hooks and Wolverine split rings. No need to change out the split rings or hooks like many other plugs. Great product and I carry at least three in my surf bag every time I hit the beach!
