Limited quantities and colors...
Check our lure board New products/Specials section as will be updated as they are finished.
Because of the time they take, Dahtahs are a rainy day project.

These are BIG FISH plugs. NO BS. One of the best if not THE best design ever made. These are EXACT copies of Danny Pichney original lures.

2 Oz size, stainless steel thru-wired this is a exact copy of an original Danny Pichney 2 oz darter.
This was and still is widely viewed as one of the best designs ever made.
We've done these as a kit for quite a while now and introduced these finished for 2012!
3/0 VMC 4X strong hooks on the belly and a 6/0 VMC machine tied bucktail dressed siwash on the tail.
500 lb stainless swivels and stainless triple split rings.

These will swim with a wide darting action from side to side.  They swim identical to the originals and they were fish slayers back then and continue to be now!
Best environment for this plug is moving water. Cast out then rip your rod back to get the plug to dig. Continue reeling with occasional pauses/twitches.
Works very well on beachfronts too. Great plug to get out there and down.
Squidly eyes. CANDY to a striper!

"Just wanted to let you know I caught some very nice fish on your 3 oz darter and my biggest fish of the season was 42 pounds and caught on the same in a black over silver pattern. That lure is now retired and on display in my living room. Thought you would like the feed back...That darter was thrown before I left the area I had been fishing for 3 hours with other plugs,lol.Go figure"

Nice job Ed!
"Your big darter came through huge today!"
"Hello all.  My second order from Salty's, love your lures.  If they are the diamonds in my surf bag, I must be rich.....lol. 
I want a darter for this season, I know you don't custom paint jobs, but please, please consider doing the 3 oz darter from the ad last year again.  Yellow with red throat. 
I have tried to buy plugs from the online and box stores, the quality of your lures just gives me no confidence in the plastics. "

"WOW!  I am impressed with the swimming action, but even more impressed when used like a jerkbait,
the slow rise makes it nearly neutrally buoyant and I am seeing depths of 6-8 feet that works great for the edges of the weedbeds for those crazy muskies!!"

"Great Action on that Darter, I like how it swings side to side!"

"BTW, i was on CC Canal a couple days ago, on sunrise, and this plug is a Killer (3oz Dahtah). 
After 1 hour or so of no action at all using Pencil and Polaris i decided to try the Dahtah...
i was amazed,  on 1st cast  i got a nice 42" bass, they were feeding just bellow surface....and later a couple 34"+.
Then the bass moved further to the other CC Canal side and i wasn't able to cast that far...  "


"My new favorite darter I've caught some nice fish on that plug"
