Stan Gibbs found designing this plug a challenge because he was looking for an excellent swimming plug without a bulky metal pan. This plug is considered a classic and often referred to as the "Bottle Plug". "When the going gets tough the tough get going" is a phrase that can be applied to this plug. More big fish have succumbed to this lure than any other artificial in the market year after year.
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.
I love this lure .I just cast this in some strong current and it does its job.
I can feel the lure swimming by line
- Digs in nicely.
- Catches fish.
- Since it's wood, the lip gets mashed.
- Too many trebles
