View Full Version : Big Don?s Wooden Lures?
01-27-2004, 11:01 AM
To all striper aficionados out there?
I?ve probably used just about every types of custom wooden plugs designed for stripers, but this weekend (Fort Washington Expo. / Sport Fish? Outlet) I was just exposed to the custom Big Don?s Wooden Lures. They were meticulously well made and the finish is as good as any premium plug out there.
Just wondering? Anyone ever tried these lures? Any Comments?

I was at the show Saturday (saw among other things you friend Mike Laptew's fantastic presentation), when were you there? I would have enjoyed meeting you. Do you expect to be at either the Atlantic City Boat Show next week, or at the Atlantic City Sportsman's Show in March?

Yes, I spent most part of the weekend (Sat. & Sunday) in Mike Laptew's booth (Crocodile Bay Lodge) and promoting the new AquaSkinz products. ;)
At this time, I am schedule to give a seminar at the Sportsmen Center (March 21st).
I am also one of the Saltwater Sportsman National Seminar speaker with George Poveromo(West Islip / 2/21)
AND I am speaking at the Massachussets Bass Show (3/27 & 3/28) ;)

Damn, missed you, guess you were checking out the rest of the show when I was at the booth next to Mike's booth (think it was Beach Haven Charter Boat Association).
As to the 3/21 seminar, would that be the one in Bordentown NJ? If so, I hope to see you there.
P.S. as Brian said above, I think HIP is really into those plugs, if memory serves me correct, he bought a boat load of them at last year's Ft. Washington show.

Very "meticulously" made indeed! If ya think they look & feel good wait till ya swim one!
From their quality materials to their super sweet action in the water I make it a point not to leave home without'em smile.gif

I've been a Little Danny fan forever... anybody have a comparison? Are they just a design ripoff for less $$ ?

If ya like Gibb's ya gotta give Big Don's a try smile.gif
The minute you hold the two of'em in your hand you'll see they have their differences. However, there is one thing they do have in common...Bass Luv'em!

I was gonna say what Ron did - def. not ripoffs :D

Actually, I was hoping they WERE ripoffs!! See, the problem is there just isn't any room left in my surfbag.. all the little tubes are so crammed with Danny's, Redfins, big rattletraps, Bombers, and huge Gags topwaters... what am I going to leave at home when I add Big D's to the arsenal???
