Always used its little brother i have been antiicipating the release of the new 2oz mag darter for a while. Used it in the surf last season and this plug destroyed the fish.

Casts long distance with weight transfer system. Have this lure in the Bone color and I've had great success with striped bass and blues off the surf.

Mag Darter is a must have lure. Killed the late season striped bass surf fishing with this lure. The slower the retrieve the better.
ProsAvailable in multiple colors.

Yo-Zuri R1216 Mag Darter Lure
Arrived VERY promptly, particularly surprising because it was during the holiday season. Delivered exactly as ordered, product seems intact and well constructed. Need to wait (New England) until the blues and strippers return before taking it out on it's maiden run!

Fish magnet! When you watch these swim they don't wiggle like a colt snipers or so minnows but fish especially bass cannot stay off these
ConsBetter in current

This is a nice larger size lure in the Mag Darter design. It has a tight swimming action and will "dart" if the rod is pumped. It's casts pretty well which was important for me as I use it near inlets and moving water where it is typically windy. Very happy to have this larger Mag Darter version.

Great lure especially in calmer water. Use a slow retrieve with twitches ever once in a while. Catches big blues and stripers. The bronze is great when the bunker schools are around. So glad they lowered the price too. A must have in any surfcasters bag!!!
ProsCasts well, great action, easy to work, catches fish, good hooks, well priced

Catches when seemingly nothing else will. Has saved many a night for me, managing to pull at least a few fish when other offerings were ignored. Fantastic action and cast a mile for the size and weight lure. Hooks seem like they should be replaced, but I haven't had one fail yet on bass up to 22lbs- they're sticky sharp and stronger than they look. Black and the luminous pearl / white are my stand-bys at night and rarely go un-eaten. I'll throw the bronze when peanut bunker are around and the mackerel when small tinker mackerel are around and they haven't failed me yet - not sure if the color had anything to do with it or just the great swimming action, but they work. Favorite settings are on the beach in a sweep, where they get crushed, often in the 1st wave / lip close to shore and in current outlfows at breachways, salt ponds, etc. They don't swim real deep but if the waters relatively shallow or fish are feeding in the middle / upper part of the column, you're good to go.
Prosaction castability seem to catch fish when nothing else will

Anyone who's used a mag darter knows what a great lure it is. Great action, the fish love it, what more is there to say?

Must have in any surf bag
I take this plug any time I go fishing for striped bass. It is one of my go-to/confidence baits. When it seems like nothing else is working I can usually rely on this to at least pull in a school.
Proscast well, catch well, great colors
Consaction is sometimes hindered by clips

This and the SP are two of the most productive surface lures in my surf bag. It casts quite well for its weight and I really like its swimming action (more importantly, the fish like it too). Great for stripers and blues. Highly recommended.
