Striped bass love rough water. Their wide tails help them easily navigate through the churning surf while baitfish and crustaceans are being pushed around and disoriented. Unfortunately, these conditions can be difficult for surfcasters. The same rough seas that put stripers in a feeding mood can overwhelm many swimming plugs, making them roll over and giving them an unnatural appearance. Enter the Gibbs Casting Swimmer.
Nicknamed "bottle plugs" for their thin necks and wide bodies, the Gibbs Casting Swimmer is built for turbulent water and long-distance casts. The large curved lip makes them swim frantically while they track straight, even through the biggest surf and fastest rips.
