Stillwater Lures presents the Smack-It and Smack-It Jr. Topwater Popper Baits. These lures could very well be the most effective striper fishing plugs on the market. Made of high quality components at an affordable price, Stillwater lures is committed to bringing you the very best value in the industry!
The Smack-It measures in at 5 inches in length and weighs 1 & 1/4 oz. Its baby brother, the Smack-It Jr., is 3 & 3/4 inches long and weighs 3/4 oz. Both baits have the weight you need to get those long casts, but they still float with ease. The Smack-It works well when casting from the beach or from a boat. The Smack-It Jr. is ideal for back bay fishing for schooling stripers and blues.
Other features include 3X strong Mustad hooks and finishes that will hold up to the toughest of conditions. Even the holographic finished baits will not chip or peel. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the bait, and one that sets it apart from the rest, is the distinctive rattle that will attract all kinds of gamefish. The Smack-it has a reputation for bringing in the big stripers, but it also works on bluefish, largemouth and smallmouth bass and musky, just to name a few. Made in the USA with the highest attention to detail, youve got to try one today!
I will take one in every color! Thereâ€™s a reason you can never find these on the shelf, they produce. The junior smack it is perfect for summer plugging the NJ marsh. Great lure- AC

Great Topwater Action
I finally got into fishing top-water on the Chesapeake bay. Had an absolute bast catching fish on top water with these lures. They consistently produced better than other top-water lures my friends were using. I would highly recommend this lure!

If you like catching Stripers, this is the only top water you should buy, no joke.
1st cast, 29" caught at the Rock Piles on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge on Rt50. 2nd. cast 22" caught, 3-8 cast no hits. 9th cast 35" 18# . Key is to jerk it , stop, 2 seconds, jerk , stop 3 seconds, jerk , jerk , jerk. It gets hit, wind up any loose line, do not hit a hook set until you can feel the fish has it in its mouth. Then hit it two times hard to set hooks. No fish got away with this type of hook setting techniques. These lures are made of great quality, really sharp hooks. I tried to put on a trailer or teaser line off its rear, but it did not work as well when just using the lure out of the box. Regarding size , match the baitfish in the area.
ProsMovement, quality, sound, flash, quality build of the lure, and most definitely the sharp and long lasting hooks.
ConsNone really but a couple cast caught the line in the rear treble hook and it fouled up, but that was during very windy conditions. All lures do that crap.

This is my go to popper when working back bays and small water. Stripers and blues mash this plug. Pop, pop, pop, pause, repeat and get ready!

This is the most effective lure on the market for Stripers and Blues. Hands down. Sr and Jr are fish catching beasts. If you don't have this on your rod you are missing the action. Smokey is the most productive for NJ Ocean and Barney bay fishing.
ProsCatches fish for your mama!
ConsPoor production line so hard to find.

Money in the Bank
Stillwater Smack Its are the only topwater plug I use on the Chesapeake any more. It seems that Tackledirect isn't carrying the best color combos for the Chesapeake (although the old joke that it doesn't matter what color the lure is, as long as it's chartreuse is pretty darn true here). The Black Back Silver Hologram and the Yellow Face Silver Hologram have worked best for me, especially in low light conditions casting over or near underwater structure. Well crafted, these lures have survived beating from 5 pound+ blues and stripers up to 15 pounds and also have survived beatings when fish are actively feeding on bay anchovies or menhaden. Hooks are well made and are of a fairly thick gauge wire. No issues with rust on any of the metal components. And the lure buoyancy is as good as it can get.

Solid Construction, Hooks Up To Par
The first thing to look at on most lures is the hook or hooks and the hardware. The treble's on these lures are very well made, appropriately sized, and held onto the body with what appear to be very substantial split rings.
That makes me believe that the parts of the lure I can't see are equally well constructed.
I bought these poppers to replace two other similar (albeit less expensive) poppers that had hooks on them more suitable for crappie fishing.
With these Smack-Its I fully expect the hooks to be able to hold up when a king mackerel, dolphin(fish), barracuda, or blackfin tuna inhales one of then offshore of Southport, NC where I plan to utilize them.
