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.

I purchased this lure awhile back but never used it till now. Even know it's been awhile but it was kept in my basement with all my other lures and fishing gear. After i used it i rinsed it with cold water and hung dry in back yard. A few hours layer as i was putting all the gears away that's when i noticed the crack. Appx. 2" on 1 side of middle hook and 1" on ther other side.

Merchant Response:Sorry to hear you are having issues with your lure. I would recommend reaching out to Gibbs about the damage to your lure, they have great customer service and should be able to help you with a warranty claim or a replacement. Thank you. http://www.gibbslures.com/contact-us/

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