About

In 2016, I started playing around with creating my own custom soft plastic baits. I spent that entire year just fishing my baits. After the first time catching a fish on something I created, I was hooked! So I spent that year making soft plastics and fishing only soft plastics.

Towards the end of 2017, I visited my dad for Christmas. During that time, I spent some time in his woodshop. My dad has always been very creative and crafty. So I was curious if I could make my own bait from wood. I started working on something that was shaped different from anything else I have used. It was not radically different, but different for sure. I came back home with what I had formed and shaped at my dad's house. Then I had to decide how to paint it and clear coat it. So I did what most people do when they need help. I asked Google. :)

I found a video from an airbrush artist who paints baits. This video was instruction on what to use when you don't have an airbrush (I didn't own one or have ever used one at the time). The solution was FINGERNAIL polish. :) So I went to my local store and picked up several different colors and clear coats to see what I could do. The first time testing out my lure was on an abnormally warm day in February. I took it to a river that was not far from my work and surprisingly caught a 4.28 lb bass! Again, I was hooked! This started me down this path of creating original designs in wood and custom painting blanks.

I hope you find enjoyment in fishing these baits as much as I have had in making them. Tight Lines!!
