These Needlefish are painted, epoxied, rigged, and finished with a WhipIt Tail. In addition to our variety of standard colors, this collection of Needlefish is custom painted to compliment Al Gag’s famous WhipIt Tails. Be sure to grab a package of extra tails in case you run into some bluefish!
247 Lures has always been a big fan of Needlefish plugs! This Needlefish body was designed at 7.25″ and 1.75oz to be just the right size whether you’re fishing from boat or from shore. Our Needlefish sinks more slowly than most others on the market. This allows the 247 Needle to swim perfectly in that shallow water boulder field where the big stripers love to feed.
Cast it out, let it sink to your desired depth, and retrieve slowly. Give it a twitch occasionally to flash the underbelly sideways at the fish.
*** Please take note: for a couple years now, 247 Lures has been working toward a transition in the 7″ Needlefish bodies. Due to a number of reasons, we’re now using smaller 3-D eyes recessed into the side of the wooden body. The 9″ Needlefish bodies remain unchanged. (Pictures on the website will be changed as soon as we have new stock images of all color combos)
(Exact weight of individual plugs will vary slightly because of wood grain density, sealer absorption, layers of paint, thickness of clear coat, and even variation in the internal lead weights. Weights listed in product titles and description are best approximation, rounded up to the nearest quarter ounce.)
