The Yo-Zuri Surface Cruiser Lures are versatile pencil poppers that can be fished with a stop and pop, walk the dog, or skipping action on a fast retrieve. They are perfectly weighted for long distance casting. The Surface Cruiser lures are the ideal surf lures for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Jack Crevalle and Roosterfish. These lures are part of the Big Game species lures and therefore have the ability to draw explosive strikes from species such as Tuna and Dorado.
This popper casts thru the wind and is easy to walk on surface or pop. When you want a big profile, it fills the niche.
ProsSturdy hardware Durable paint
ConsLong- doesn?t fit in shorter tubes for bag carry. If this is the case, buy a bigger bag.

The colors and detail are great on this lure. Excellent action and cast well. This lure also comes with some quality large hooks for big fish.

While this plug gets a lot of accolades, and has great action, the hooks are covered in rust after a week of use even though washed in fresh after each use.
ProsGood action and you can use as pencil popper or a push water plug.

This is an extremely far casting and easy to work pencil popper. Yo Zuri did a great job bringing back an old favorite of mine. The new one is more durable and better action in my opinion.

I'm very excited that the surface cruiser is back in production because it is so productive. It comes with premium hardware, and an extremely realistic finish. It's also made of durable plastic, casts a mile, and works a great walk-the-dog action. Use in the daylight in calm conditions.

Awesome top water lure

I was a big fan of the old surface cruiser and when I saw they had come out with a newer model I knew I had to get my hands on some. Caught a nice striper within the first 10 cast using the red head. The older version had issues with the hooks chipping the paint off the lure. I don't see this being as much an issue with the new ones but only time will tell. Definitely a must have in your tackle box!
