2.5 oz Salty's Sea-gars
Hand Finished Birch cigar shaped popper, sealed against water for maximum durability, and painted. Weighted perfectly for optimum presentation! Machine tied buck tails for the ultimate in durability!
VMC Permasteel 4X strong 4/0 Belly hook, 6/0 Siwash tail hook. Hand tied buck tails with Mirage flash.
Oversized Holographic eyes for maximum effect! Stainless Steel hardware where possible!
Through wired for maximum strength! Perfect for school blue fin tuna, stripers, or LARGE bluefish!
We make all our lures standard with Siwash tail hooks for best hook-up!

Proper presentation of a pencil popper is the cast then twitch the rod tip while retrieving, this will allow the lure to "walk the dog" from side to side.
Vary your retrieve, go real slow for stripers, faster for bluefish.
Jumble it up a few twitches fast a few slow. Dying bait is very erratic.

And they're hand made in the USA...

The catches on the Sea-gar poppers have been fantastic!
The Sea-gar is my go-to popper when fishing the surf, very aerodynamic, casts a mile,
and has a unique "slashing" style action to it that always drives the fish wild!

"Thanks for getting the poppers out to me. Last night the storm had moved through by 6:30pm.  Went out on the lower CT River and first cast a 15 lber on the Parrot Pencil!  Was getting fish on just about every cast for an hour.  Lost count of the keepers I landed.  Wicked explosive strikes.  All fish caught in 3 - 5 feet of water.  In the 2 days I have owned your pencil popper I have absolutely crushed the fish.  I'm going out again tonight armed with the Pencil Popper and the Regular Popper that just came today."

"Your plugs are always on the end of my line (and usually with a fish attached). Keep up the good work."

Banana Stick The Seagar has now been discontinued and has been replaced with the 2.5 oz pencil popper above.
Look for more and new sizes of pencils in 2012!
This has always been one of my favorite lures. They worked very well with a nice slashing action.
This was a Makati Lure design from many years ago. I own all the original knives for these and many other lures.
Someday maybe we'll do some more....stay tuned.

I get asked a lot about what colors are best?
Pearl White is the best imitation of a normal squid. Olive/White and Black/Silver make excellent small bait imitators. Yellow or Parrot at sunrise or cloudy days. Parrot has also worked well on sunny days too! On sunny days stick with a color that has a high definition color hue change on it such as Blue/White or Olive/White.  Spend some time looking at the bait prevalent in your area and you will soon understand why certain colors can give you just that little bit extra advantage to entice a larger fish to take your lure.
Don't be afraid to use such colors as Blue/White, Black/Silver or Yellow/White at night either!
Lot's of people don't fish poppers at night but they are a very effective way to catch fish if you stay in contact with the plug. Fish them barb-less for an easy release and the health of our fish stocks! I've lost only a few fish in my life to barb-less hooks and they've all been faster runners than I can reel to keep tight to them!
