How We Started

Our Story

Fishing is one of America's favorite pastimes, and one of my favorite passions in life. Knowing the different specs of fishing, I wanted to elevate things to the next level. About 20 years ago, I started making my own lures and jigs by using different parts of plastics within the lures and rubber worms. My lures became so popular through my family and friends, that I started customizing lures and worms for them. In 2017, I received a sign of using a certain mold to make my lures, so low and behold, the Thunder Guppie fishing bait was born!

I started collaborating with some college students from Southern Illinois University, and various machine shops within my area, before coming up with the final product. (Thank you to Kelly and Joe for getting me in touch with the right machine shop!) After trial and error, I finally created a design that allows me to manufacture the amount of lures I needed to get started. Not only is fishing more than just a hobby for me, it was also a great learning experience in understanding the knowledge behind it. My grandkids help me thrive daily as I'm hoping to one day put them through college with my fishing business. Enjoying the memories I get to make with my family and friends has kept my passion going even stronger to spreading those memories for you and yours.
