Personalized fishing lures?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
