Ever since I moved to the Gulf Coast of Florida in 2006 I have been fascinated with saltwater fishing. Any chance I get to take a break from the daily grind, you can find me on the Gulf trolling for the next big catch. In 2007, I started fishing blue water, catching all species of the pelagic. During this time I bought the big name lures and paid that valuable high dollar hoping it would help win me the golden opportunity to catch that Grander.
In the early days, not knowing much about trolling, I lost several lures to mishaps with tackle and those toothy wahoo. I realized that not only did I have to pay for the boat, the gas, and everything in it; I was also paying up to an extra $150 a trip for expensive lures, that often ended up lost at sea. With that being said I decided in 2010, I was going to start making my own lures. I likely started the same as everyone else, using pill bottles for molds and buying skirts from the local tackle shops. My first lures were probably some of the ugliest ever made but they worked! I was stoked that I caught a fish on a lure I actually made! After several years of testing lure design concepts that I came up with, I finally feel I have a product ready to deliver to the fellow blue water fisherman at a reasonable price.
In early 2016, I created Tailwalker Lures. My hand drawn flying fish logo inspired the name of the business. To me the flying fish represents the best sign of a productive day out on the water. Being surrounded by two of the largest military bases in the country gave me the inspiration for my lure names and a way to show my support for my local community of the armed forces. I pride myself on the quality of the workmanship, thought and attention to detail that goes into each step of the process to make every lure as close to perfection as possible. Tailwalker Lures are made using only the best ballistic and UV resistant resins and will not yellow or chip when dropped on concrete. Each lure can be customized to your specifications with your own logo or boat name. From the custom handmade lure heads to the top of the line skirts, Tailwalker Lures are 100% made in the USA. If you’re looking for the best quality lure with a price tag that won’t break the bank, Tailwalker Lures are just waiting to help you land the greatest catch of your life!
