Do not think these were built recently.

Larger Darter is 7 inches yellow over silver. A real beauty

Smaller one is 6 inches- thought it was a beachmaster but tail is tapered like a musso, tie is smaller and wrap is different?? Also a real beauty.

Maybe George, Paul, someone else?

Rob that small one looks like George ' s . If so , fish it asap. I love my only one I have. Did you get them from Frank?

Yep Billy- Since I stored Frank's stuff I had first dibs.

The smaller one has the epoxy on the tie like a Beachmaster.

Not my tail wrap. Could be a Numbskull. Looks like his wrap the smaller one would only have 1 belly hook though.

Found out G does make a 3 hook one so most likely those could be his.

The green one looks like one of mine. It is a copy of the standard 6" three hook Musso meant to carry 3/0s. Although the three trebles are a curse, the design fishes so well that is the way I use it. It is the best and most versatile night-time striped bass plug I have ever used( all credit to Musso, however, not me). It is a shame to see that plug unfished.........and I would not care or say that about anything else I make. By all means rig it and use it. You'll certainly be thankful you did.

Thanks George. Absolutely will try to fish it this weekend.

I have one of your 5 inch darters that has been great for me.

Hope none of my trebles get the pretzel treatment.

Yellow over silver may be by Blondterror....

yellow over silver is not mine... I use grommets on all my plugs... I do make some darters that are basically the same as Numbskulls...

If its made by George you got 1 of the best on your line. I've managed to get my hands on some of his an they are some sweet an the fish love them. Enjoy

Yellow over silver was built by me 🤗 Frank Cap... And Billy D each got one. One herring and one yellow over silver. Went to a better epoxy for the nose loop and some beefier krok swivels. Since that batch. Im still building 😬
