Well made!
I've decided to try lures after fishing with chunked mullet,shrimp, worms etc for years. This lure was well recommended all over the internet and by personal friends of mine. It looks amazing very detailed and crafted very well. The eyes and the hooks are extremely solid and instill alot of confidence.

Great Lure!
I own quite a bit of Yo-Zuri lures, and the Mag Darter is always one of the ones I always have ready to fish! They have great action, outstanding quality, and of course they catch fish! I have the older models and just purchased the New Black/Purple 6-1/2"(Beautiful finish), and tell you what guys, this thing cast a mile, even in windy conditions! Snooks, Jacks, and pretty much anything that was inshore during the time I used it were killing it!
ProsGreat quality, finish, and cast a mile! Oh and yes, they catch fish too!
ConsHurts to lose them!

Similar to the 5" mag darter but heavier
I love how these lures cast. They seem light, but fly straight upon casting.

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

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
ProsKills bass

Must have!
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

Fish Magnet
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

Great Lure
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

What's the difference between these two models besides the price?
1 Answers
Hello Dave. The difference is the finish. The pearl redhead is a newer offering by Yozuri where the red fades into the white and the red is a more "candy apple" color in tint. The standard redhead mag has a brighter white body with a more "stop sign" red head that transitions without any fade. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions!
