PURCHASES ARE LIMITED TO ONE PLUG ONLY
8" 4.75 oz. +- "The Beast" Darter
"Hey Mike, Got a fish that tipped that scales at just over 40 pounds after being dead in the cooler all night! Caught this fish back in June and have been very busy fishing hard. I like the darter and the finish has held up very well".
We have a very limited supply of new birch 4.75 oz. darters. If your looking for a darter thats a little wider, a little heavier, and digs a little deeper, this is the plug for you. Comes rigged with two 4/0 VMC Perma Steel belly trebles and a matching custom tail flag. Features a wide body and lip for more stability and dig. This plug floats at rest but a little twitch is all it takes to get it down into the strike zone (6-10'+ easily) A very slow steady retrieve with an occasional twitch -- let the current work the plug. A great sub surface alternative that has been proven to be an effective tool in your plug arsenal. A "beast" of a plug! This plug is now made in a "Headbanger" version only in order to protect the wood lip and extend the plugs life. A single hook version is in the works in the interest of catch and release; we plan on eliminating the current two belly treble version for 2022.
All fishing tackle is subject to federal excise tax (which is not a state sales tax). This excise tax encompasses almost every aspect of our sport from rods to reels to lures. Lures in particular are subject to 10%. Some builders separate the excise tax and tack it onto the price while others build it into the cost (like I do).
All federal excise taxes associated with the Sport Fish Restoration Act that are collected are redistributed to the 50 states based upon their land area and license sales to anglers and hunters. These funds are then used by the states for fisheries and wildlife management as well as land acquisition that benefits the non-hunting population as well.
