Dartwing inshore

The DARTWING concept was created to mimic skipping baitfish, and entice any predatory fish to strike. Representing the ultimate surface skipping popper, the Dartwing’s unique "winged" head design makes the lure dart erratically from side to side when wound across the surface, looking like a scared injured baitfish.

It can be worked with a fast retrieve and also with a twitching rod tip action to make the lure bounce across the surface, where the Dartwing design creates maximum surface disturbance and side to side action. 

The 130 floating and 130 long cast sinking are ideal for inshore surface feeding species such as Striped Bass, Bluefish, School Tuna, Jacks and more.

When longtime friend and editor of the USA’s biggest recreational angling publication Sport Fishing Magazine asks you to travel across the other side of the world and fish with him on a trip designed to be the polar opposite of fishing the Great Barrier Reef, the only answer is "YES Doug, lets go!"
Fishing New York city in the shadow of JFK airport was not exactly what I expected, and the fishing was really quite remarkable. Sight casting to 20lb fish in 2ft of water is exciting anywhere, but who knew this was available right next to one of the world’s biggest cities!
