*Due to shortages of Super Strike plugs that have led to longer than normal ship times, we have put all Super Strike plugs into pre-order status. You can order lures but will not be charged until they are in stock. You can cancel your order at any time without a penalty. You will need a credit card or PayPal to place an order. Pre-order discount does not apply.
The Super Strike Needlefish Super “N” Fish Plug is sort of an anomaly in the surf fishing game. People always choose lures that have a distinct action - be that a wobble, popping action, darting action etc. The Super “N” Fish (aka the needlefish) doesn’t do any of that – it basically drags through the water like a stick. When I first saw the action of these lures, I was absolutely bewildered! These lures have accounted for so many slobs it’s not even funny. But how? I’m no marine biologist, so I couldn’t tell you why a fish would attack a lure with absolutely no action – but ask anyone who’s ever used one of these plugs. They catch fish plain and simple; in fact the biggest striper I ever took from the surf hit a 2.5 oz black Super “N” Fish off Northbar in Montauk. There’s no explanation, and sometimes it’s better to leave well enough alone. Like their cousins the bullet, the Super “N” Fish is most effective thrown into a head wind, as it cuts through the air like a warm knife through butter.
Super Strike Needlefish Super “N” Fish comes with VMC treble hooks with a dressed Mustad siwash hook on some models. They are constructed using Super Strike’s rugged through-wire construction, and are available in 16 different colors in the 1, 1.5, 2.5 and 3 oz sizes.
Models: NF5W, NF5HW, NF6W, NF6HW, NF7W, NF7HW
