The tariff thread got me thinking to how many US based baits I use. So what is everyone's favorite lure made in the USA?


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

Gary Yamamoto Senko! Made in USA! Most, if not all, of my wire baits...spinners, buzz, chatter, A-rig are custom made by Yeah Baby! Baits. I hand pour and inject 90% of my own plastics. Hooks are Tokar, weights are probably Chinese tungsten. Almost all my cranks are CostaRica or Finland. My lines are USA and Japanese. My reels are Japanese and Korean. Rods are USA, JDM, and China (Academy).

Actually, aside from some cheapo rods....I have very little Chinese fodder in my boat.

I wouldn't assume that so quickly. They just invested significantly in their production facility in Tulsa just prior to the acquisition.

To the OP, there are many great products made both here and abroad. Local companies I personally like are Gene Larew, Smashtech Swimbaits and Revenge baits but there are many other good ones. Most of the better quality rods and reels seem to come from overseas and form what I've been told on the rod side that is for quality and not just price.

Well dang... they always had a proud "Made in the USA" thing on the package too. Deals get made though I understand.

Not sure if there are many hardbaits being made in the states anymore. Plenty of plastics, jigs, spinners, etc
