Pencil Popper
A Stan Gibbs original with application in fisheries around the world. This is an aerodynamically beautiful plug to cast and its sleek tapered design simulates many forms of forage fish.
Guide To Fishing Gibbs Lures
The sleek, tapered design with tail weighting will get this plug "out there". From that point on a variety of retrieves will draw strikes. Perhaps the most effective, however, is a retrieve that may take a little practice. Point the rod tip at the plug and induce some rapid up-and-down tip action - not violent but steady, while at the same time reeling slowly to make the plug dance from side to side on the surface.

Quality plug
You can count on this plug when fish are top water feeding. Do the Jersey shake on your retrieve and the plug supplies all the action you need.

Gibbs pencil poppers
I don't always fish pencil poppers, but when I do, I prefer Gibbs. I find Gibbs the easiest pencil poppers to work, they have the ideal float and create just the right amount f commotion on the surface when worked properly

Great plug for striped bass and blue fish
These plugs are great in all sizes. I have caught many bass and blues on these plugs. They are better prices than many plugs out there and catch fish. Plug has quality split rings and hooks.
