Guppy Lures Handcrafted Wooden Lures by Guppy Lure Company

Guppy Lures are some of the finest wooden plugs on the market today.

They are handcrafted here in the U.S.A. by people who spend all of their time thinking about fishing. Our passion is topwater fishing and we have worked tirelessly to craft what we believe are the best Pencil Poppers and Poppers available. We use top quality woods and industry-leading components which we couple with our strict standard of quality to create plugs that work, cast and catch fish with consistency.  

Building lures started as a hobby for the Hess Family and morphed quickly into an accidental business. Taking queues from some of the classic plugs of yesteryear and adding in their knowledge of fishing the boiling currents of the Cape Cod Canal, they came up with a repertoire of designs that cast like rockets and work great in just about every surfcasting situation. With sizes and weights to fit every need, the Guppy lineup of Pencil Poppers and Poppers have become staples in anglers' arsenals from Cape Ann to the Cape Cod Canal, throughout Rhode Island, Long Island and New Jersey

2-3/8 oz Mini Pencil Popper

The 2-3/8 oz Mini (Flat) is our answer to the "loaded" pencil. While some manufacturers put all of their emphasis on getting as much lead into the plug as possible, we found out rather quickly that you sacrifice a lot of action when you do this. Per our usual testing process we worked on finding the balance between optimum casting for a six inch plug and fish-catching action. After some testing by ourselves and some sharp local anglers we settled on 2-3/8 ounces as the perfect weight and the Mini Flat was born. This plug excels when you need to reach out to fish that are out of range for most other plugs, it's compact design and aerodynamic shape mean that it sails through the wind with little resistance. The Mini Flat sinks but will plane to the surface within seconds of the start of your retrieve and then you can start in with your favorite 'penciling' routine and expect the plug to perform and catch just like the rest of our line of Pencil Poppers.
 
The 1-1/4-ounce Pencil is our smallest Pencil Popper. Over the years we've been asked to apply the Guppy formula to a small Pencil and late in the season of 2012 we set out to do it. There are many challenges in making a smaller Pencil because we have less wood to offset the added weight and the weight of the hardware. After several prototype configurations we arrived at what we believe is one of the best small Pencils on the market today. This Pencil features a round bottom and has an action similar to our 2 oz Round Mini.  The plug still maintains the action and casting trajectory that we strive for here at Guppy Lures and is a perfect choice for backwater bass, or even in calm to moderate surf conditions when the fish are keyed on small baits like finger mullet, spearing, sardines, silversides, tinkers, peanuts and even rain bait.

Jobo Jr.

The Jobo Junior is our original Pencil Popper. We make the Junior in two weights, 2-3/4 and 3 ounces, and they both have a place in your bag. The 2-3/4 is the best all-around Pencil for moderate surf conditions. It excels from the backwater rivers to the beach to the Cape Cod Canal. The 3 ounce is the one you pull out when you have to cut through a howling wind or have to hold in rough surf or heavy current. This Pencil is a good size to cover a wide array of baitfish from herring and squid to mullet, mackerel and menhaden--this plug gets it done, can handle just about anything Mother Nature can throw your way and has the action to bring those big girls up for a look

AfterHours Plugs Dealer

Ocean State Tackle is proud to offer a selection of AfterHour Lures

Afterhours Pencil Poppers

Afterhours Pencil Poppers are a favorite for top water junkies up an down the coast.  Solid fish producing lures, these pencils often produce fish when others won't.  Their design and weighting make them an easy and effective plug to work - no matter what technique you impart, be it the traditional side-to-side thrashing, or a slower, walk-the-dog type retrieve.

Long distance casting, I often turn to these lures when searching for fish along a rocky shoreline, around a rip, along a beach or when stripers are marauding bait - I work them effectively along the outside edges.  Their enticing action makes them a top producer in most waters.  The plugs have been producing trophy-size fish from Maine down into the Mid-Atlantic states and beyond.

We offer AfterHour pencil poppers, and like all Afterhours plugs, their finish and performance is second to none.  The AH Junior Pencil is 6 1/2 " long and 2 oz.  the AH Senior Pencil one is 8" long and 3 1/4 oz.
