Personalized fishing lures?

18 posts in this topic

I'm getting married in October and I'm looking for a place that will make personalized lures as a gift for my groomsmen. I've found a few places online that offer personalization but require a minimum order of 50-100 lures.

Is there anyone here that has an idea of a place that would do this with a small quantity or have any other ideas for groomsmen gifts?

Thanks in advance,

Adam

I would post this in the rod building and lure making forum.

I've seen Eppinger Daredevles and Normark Rapala Rattlin' Raps with company names and images, but I'm guessing those are the big order deals.

I got a Rattlin Rap from a customer we did business with that had their company name on it. No mention of where they got them but they said it was one of the last ones they had. Neat idea though.

My cousin gave out personalized flasks for his wedding and I got one for being an usher which was pretty cool.

I thought about the flasks or personalized beer mugs but since one of the groomsmen is underage and another one has drinking probelms, I decided that it was a bad idea. Both of them love fishing though so thats how I came up with this idea.

Thanks for the input everyone.

A knife is a good groomsmen gift. Regarding lures, JR's Tackle might be able to help you out. Worth a call anyhow.

I gave buck knifes to my groomsman and ushers and they loved it.

Recently I gave personalized crank baits to some friends for attending a function. What I did was have them personalized by a friend of mine that is a gifted artist as I only needed a small amount of them.

Just another idea for you.

I would look in the phone book for a company that specializes in specializing gifts and knick knacks. I can't come up w/ the word that I am looking for. sort of company that sells you pens and coffee mugs w/ custom logos and things. I know some company can help you out. grat idea and congratulations.

Try a trophy shop. We are always getting corporate gifts made up at a local trophy shop, they'll put a company logo on anything from a golf ball to a coffee mug.

Here's another possibility - I had an idea for a crankbait color and a friend who does taxidermy volunteered to paint one of my existing cranks in the color I wanted. He actually painted a Rapala in a crappie pattern with one side being a white crappie and the other a black crappie....catches fish too.....

Maybe you could find a taxidermist who would do a few for a fee if you picked up the lure bodies from a tackle making supply house or even buy some from any source and paint over them.

Good luck

I know that Leena Lures will make personalized spinnerbaits.

Do a search with that name and you should find the HSOforum. I'm not sure if they have a minimum quantity, but it's worth taking a look at.

I did the same thing for my groomsmen. Had Bigfork lures do it. He is located in Minnesota.

You could always just get a gold sharpie and have at her!! laugh

Kidding you, I think you got some good info here and would check into the trophy shops for sure. I know there's a few places in a couple of malls where you can get personalized cups and other things for your wedding party, maybe check with them and see if they can do anything for you as well.

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
