I can also manufacture lures with the hook of your choice upon request. 



I use Colorado Blades exclusively, as they easily spin in very little current. All my lures include a 100# crane swivel.

 TROLLING SPINNERS: 

I manufacture two basic spinner models, plus a unique shrimp spinner. These are very effective lures for salmon and steelhead. Note: Because of their light weight, these do not cast well. These are trolling lures.

I produce the lures in two sizes, designated as Snake River and Columbia River. The Snake River Lures are designed to comply with a special restriction on the Snake River of a ” hook gap. I use Gamakatsu Big River, open-eye, Siwash hooks and Gamakatsu Round Bend Treble hooks exclusively. Both hook types are forged, and therefore very strong. In addition, they are scary sharp. 


I prefer the Big River hooks because they have a longer tine length than treble hooks of the same size—an important feature when fishing in barbless waters.

I also manufacture Shrimp Spinner lures in Snake and Columbia River sizes, with single or treble hooks. These lures have a unique integrated barb, which locks the shrimp in place so you don’t have to tie the bait to the lure. This lure is very effective on Steelhead.

To install the shrimp on the shrimp spinner, simply unlock the barb, insert it into the shrimp head first until it exits the shrimp in the middle of the bend, then re-insert the barb back into the lock.

At the request of several Lower Columbia fishermen, I have designed a very large spinner lure I call a Maxi-Special. This spinner has a #8 silver Colorado blade, a Gamakatsu 5/0 Big River or a 2/0 Round Bend Treble hook. Just the ticket for catching Chinook and Coho Salmon, fresh from the ocean.

This fall I tested a new Steelhead and Chinook lure which has a custom painted, deep-cup, rainbow blade. It was successful beyond my wildest dreams.

I recommend that fishermen use gel-type scents on the backside of the blades, and a small piece of shrimp, tuna or other oily fish on the hook as well for maximum results.

While my lures are primarily designed to attract salmon and steelhead, I have received excellent feedback from fishermen who have caught pike, muskies, walleye, plus large and small mouth bass using these lures.
