My would have to be a Super Strike Little neck popper in 2-3/8oz. sinking, there made out of blow molded plastic and are made to take the abuse form fishing the surf...and favorite colors are Silver and Black *and Red and White...they cast a mile and you can work them like a pencil or a chugger or a popper.

They make grate wall hangers, and I'm still buying more, but when it's time to get down to business I plug with Super Strikes 8-)

they hold up in the rocks better, they cast a mile and never get water logged.

They really have a severe neck on them. Does that impart more action to the plug?

I can't answer that one MM, but I can tell you they are injected blow molded plastic so every one is the same, they are wighted just right, paint holds up wayyyyyyyyyyy better......don't get me wrong, I love custom plugs, but at $20.00 to $100 bucks a pop I just like to collect them.

ratss do the test your self......cast wood, any wood of the same type and style....then a super strike, you be the judge.....once again not to start an argument, I own wood plugs, lots of them, but I prefer plastic super strikes at the end of my line.

I wonder if the plastic actually deadins the action so when you jerk on it to make it pop it stays on the water better. With Wood it would be more bouyant and I would thing would have more action in the water so it would want to come out of the water instaed of stay in it? Just a Thought :)

yes the Charlie Graves tins are awesome *when the surf doesn't warrant top water plugs.....I also like to throw Graves tins in rough surf and or high sun light.

I have that bottom plug. I didn't even realize it was plastic until after I got it to the water ;D If I recall it wasn't all that cheep I think it was around $15 but can't remember for sure.

i had more hook ups from the beach last season with a older plastic red head cordell.. it is the same size as the ones out today but weighs a little more and casts much better in the surf then the newer ones. i still like wood but those dang cordells once you find one with the majic, it will work good every cast.. wood doesn't always duplicate the same action as it does when it is fresh. especially if it gets a little water logged. i have a couple wood plugs that work very good for the first hour of casting then they start to fowl up the action a little after they get a little soggy. sealing them helps but with big oll swinging hooks they start to wear off the paint /epoxy sealer and start to get soggy again, only so many times you can coat them and keep them working like they did when found to have the majic and not every new one built the same will perform the same.. i must fish a few different ones before i even find one that works to my liking.. i wood say 1 out of 10 that i try works to my liking.

I have to agree. Wood is good and I through it as much as anything else, but I caught my first surf striper on a mickey and most of my surf stripers through the years have come on the old faithful mickey.

Definitely more fish to be had with subsurface metal plugs..but those of us that plug with wood, it's not how many fish we catch, it's how we catch them.....nothing no exciting than to have a Striper come up and *explode on your plug.

Ray,

Nice pic of that airborne striper going for the pencil popper! Was that taken here or in the East Coast?

BTW, please delete pics of plugs for rivers. They don't belong here man. After all, this thread is for the surf isn't it?

For topwater application, I find myself gravitating more to the pencil poppers like the Cotton Cordells, maybe because the right conditions presented themselves and allowed me to get away fishing these lighter lures. There's just something about the smaller profile and built-in rattles that gets 'em bit. The Gibb's PP comes in a close 2nd & Polaris Poppers gets 3rd.

Those custom plugs look great. Fine craftmanship and sweet eye candy. I bet they'd get their share of fish & bring pride and joy to their creators when they do.

I didn't make Those but I do make my own Custom plugs and I have do admit the best part of making them is when One of your friends calls you up and tells you they just hooked and landed a 40 on your wood.

How do you keep you reels dry going out there. Do you bring a dry box or ziplock dry bag. Ive seen some out on that rock and wondered.

most of those guys fish with the Mitchell Nautil spinning reel.....they say best surf reel ever, as far as taking a salty dunking.....that reel was discontinued two years ago. :(

My sister got one of those Mitchell Nautil reel (well we got it for her for her birthday) and she broke the seal opening it up. The front drag rubber piece fell off and she had to have it replaced. I was not all that impressed with it but not the exact same one in the pic.

as much as i would love to own one of those or even a original VS reel i don't ever see it happening unless i win the loto..i havn't had many issues with any of my 4 penn 706z or 704 bailless, black or greenie reels getting wet or sandy. i just rince them off if i have any clean water and they keep going.. i take them apart and clean them about every year, i grease the insides with marine grease and it lasts about a year till the next cleaning. they are a little heavy but they work just fine from the beach..

Those are my go to reels for the surf too, mine have lasted for YEARS. But I think you got it backwards, the 706 is the bailess and the 704 is the one with the bail.
