I love the SS Zig Zag! It's consistent and has a tight zig zag.. well constructed like all SS products!

Must have current
October 1, 2022
The zig zag has killer action provided you have the right conditions. I only use the zig-zag in heavy tides and mostly fish it before dawn or just after sunset. If I don't hit within a few throws, I wind up swapping the zigzag for something I can toss farther.
ProsThe zig-zag has got a great sweep in heavy current and fishes well on a straight retrieve. Like all super strike stuff, it tough and has great color. It throws farther than my other darters, however you're still casting a darter (see cons). It catches fish at night.
ConsLike most darters, the zig-sag just doesn't throw as far as other plugs, especially in the wind. If I need distance, I can't use the plug. The doesn't seem to work as well during the day. I can't explain this one, its just something I've noticed. I haven't caught on the lure in the inner harbor, because I just don't get a lot of topwater strikes at night. I've been thinking about loading the lure to get it to sink a little. If that happens, I'll post an update.

A must have fishing the surf. Front hook rotates, which is nice so you don't lose big fish. Definitely switch to inlines instead of the trebled

Action is a wide swimming zig zag with straight reel, twitching embellishes it. Other brands darters use a tighter wiggle side to side that differs from SS darter. This casts easily and further than similar action lures. Solid hooks and swivels to make positive hookups on many occasions. This SS and Yozuri my go to brands for darters either surf or inshore. However I don’t change out to inline hooks on the tail with SS darter, ready to go!
ConsNot sold everywhere

If you have some current and there are fish around you throw a superstrike darter. If you are in Montauk, and you don't have a Yellow Superstrike darter in your surf bag you are going to be told to leave. Just kidding of course, but these plugs excel in current and at night. And the benefit of being molded in plastic is that they will take a beating from rocks, wont swell, and always maintain their intended action. Highly reccomend for any Striped Bass angler in the Northeast.
ProsDurable Good hardware

Great for anywhere with current
November 22, 2021
I always carry darters when fishing any area of current. Open beaches with wave sweep, points, bars, boulder fields and inlets – the darter will work as long as there is moving water. If a spot is too rough for a darter, your next option is a bottle plug.
ProsAffordable and easy to find. They catch fish.
ConsI prefer to upgrade the hooks to 5X mustad 3/0

This lure has something about it that just draws bites. It has great zig zagging action in any amount of current. Don't be scared to use this during the day.

I bought this lure from a recommendation and it's been awesome. First cast with it I hooked up within 5 spins of the reel. Didn't land the fist but the fight will on was great.

SS Zig zag is the gold standard of darters. They catch fish and get bit. Both day and night. I use the black during the night and like to target areas that have some current.

If you don't carry one of these at all times you are missing out on some fish. Great action with a straight retrieve and twitch of the rod tip every couple cranks. Works best in current.
ProsCan let it drift out in the current to get it way out there.

Stripers love this lure. It's a classic darter and has great action. Great body and profile. I prefer to replace the trebles with inline hooks, because its better for the fish and easier to unhook them, I also feel that it increased hookups.
ProsGreat action Great design

Low light with current is where this lure will prosper give it a quick reel to dive it then slow your retrieve so it has a nice side to side wobble

A must own
January 9, 2018
This is a staple in any serious surf fishing night bag. My go-to color is all yellow. Mostly a night fishing plug but I have caught plenty on this in the daybreak hours. Must have water movement to be fished properly.
Proscatches fish, durable with all the right hardware no need to upgrade unless you would like to add bucktail hair to the back hook
Conscant really feel it as much as some other plugs in terms of its wobble under the water but you just have to trust that it is doing what its supposed to

I have caught zero fish with this lure during the day, even at dawn or dusk. I was going to give up on it until someone said to fish it in the dark. Well, I caught a fish. Still not my favorite lure.

I've always been hesitant to buy this plug because the waters I mostly fish are calm. I was wrong. Plug is a super producer at night even in. Alter waters using a slow reel speed with occasional rod twitches. Definitely a night plug.

If you fish the surf in the northeast, you should have one of these in your bag. They cast well, catch fish, and last longer than wooden plugs. They also cost a fair amount less than their wooden counter parts.
