Best Casting Large Surface Swimmers

I always considered the original plastic atom 40 to be the very best casting surface metal lip in existence.  Gods know I have bought a ton of wooden 40’s over the years too. While slightly smaller, swimming a 3 oz SS littleneck with a feather off the rear is another very good option too. You really need the right rod for either of these plugs to cast to their potential.

The floating shimano coltsnipers cast insanely far for a lipped surface plug. 

 

The sinking coltsnipers cast even better, and if you start reeling right away they stay just under the surface. 

 

Whopper plopper river to sea also casts a mile. 

 

Yozuri mag darter casts pretty good. 

 

A heavy northbar style plug with allot of bbs in it will cast pretty good.

Gibbs Bottle Plug has to be one of the best, big needles go like missiles also but may not be considered top surface swimmers. Roberts made a plug that went out of sight too. A 3 oz. Atom is not a great casting lure, its a great swimming lure, tends to fumble due to its bulkiness.

Didn't they discontinue those? If not, can you tell us where to get them?

The company is no longer active and they don't appear anywhere I've seen for sale at this point. If you see them hanging in some remote B&T, I suggest stocking up as they are unique, inexpensive, & durable. They have a permanent spot in my bag as a result of many positive results. If you got em, throw em, if you don't, keep your eyes open to acquire whats left.
