Also a note on order lead times:  please note that I custom make every plug and am not a stocking retailer.  I endeavor to have some stock on hand of popular models/colors,  but if that is not the case my lead time is typically 3-4 weeks.  If you have any questions about your order just email me and I'll respond as soon as possible.  Thank you!

Poombah Pencil

This is the plug that started it all.  Made from Tulip Poplar, this 7-1/2" - 2.5 oz plugs floats high in the water and works well with both a fast and slow retrieve.  Many use it as a cross-over between a pencil popper and spook style plug.  Two 3/0 tebles. Floating.

Magnum Walker

A large profile bait imitation at 8".  Weighing in at 3 oz it has a weight to length ratio of 3/8, but this is not a distance plug.  This is a finesse plug intended to be "walked" slowly back and forth on the water's surface to elicit explosive strikes.  Size 4/0 belly and tail hooks.   Floating.


A small profile bait imitation at 6".  Weighing in at 1.75 oz it has a weight to length ratio of 3/10.  This is a finesse plug intended to be "walked" slowly back and forth on the water's surface to elicit explosive strikes.  Great for freshwater pike and bass as well as in the salt.  Size 2/0 belly and tail hooks.  Floating.

Glider Fat

Much like the Shad Swimmer this plug is intended to represent deeper bellied baitfish such as bunker, butterfish, pinfish and shad.  This is a slow sinking lure that will swim relatively quickly back and forth just under the surface.   6" - 2.65 oz - 3/0 hooks.  Sinking. 

Shad Swimmer

A swim bait with a 1/2 Pikie lip to swim deeper in the water column, especially in heavier currents.  Sides are flattened and splayed to move the weight towards the rear for casting distance and action.  Belly weighted to ensure position in current.   6-1/2" long weighing 2.85 oz.   3/0 belly treble and 4/0 dressed single siwash hook on tail. Sinking.


A long, slender baitfish imitation.  Unweighted and measures 8" long with a weight of 2 oz.  A bucktail dressed teaser hook at the tail and a belly treble gives the right balance when combined with this plug's profile.   Size 3/0 belly treble and dressed 4/0 single inline tail hook.  Floating.

Janet Messineo Signature Series

Poombah Plugs has teamed up with Janet Messineo as one of our Pro-Staffers.  We are pleased to offer some of her favorite plugs as a Signature Series.  Click her name below to see some of what she considers he go-to plugs.  7" long and weights 2.5 oz.  Two 3/0 tebles.  Sinking.

Striped Bass Hunt Series


Our Gliders and Shad Swimmers use the standard in the industry:  0.062" annealed 304 stainless steel wire.  Easy to work with; corrosion resistant.  Its tensile strength is approximately 75,000 psi which translates to 225 lb test for its diameter.  

The rest of our plugs use a Grade 5 Titanium aerospace wire.  Same diameter, but 43% lighter and 84% stronger.  That's 416 lb test!  While also annealed, it's yield strength is over 300% greater than that of annealed 304 stainless (it doesn't deform as easy).  And yes:  it's completely corrosion resistant.  

Aerospace grade titanium wire.  Sound expensive?  Well, normally yes.  In fact, usually about 50 times more expensive than stainless.  But, we have a line on a very inexpensive yet sustainable source, and we'd like to offer these to you at a very reasonable cost.  If you're a hobbyist or own your own custom plug business, give these a try!
