As a local person of interest, we present to the reader the story of how Bob began;
Bob was born near the NJ coast and grew up on the water. He learned to fish as soon as he could hold a rod in his hand and began crafting wooden lure kits he would receive as a child every year at Christmas. Whether surf casting on the beach, fishing from a pier or piling, or trolling from his boat, he would fish over 200 days per year. His love for fishing encouraged him to make his first hand crafted lure in his garage. A fisherman on the beach witnessed his catch and purchased the surfster lure on the spot. His reputation for making lures that catch fish grew his business to over fifteen styles. Bob’s lures are well known on the eastern seaboard as one of the best for catching the elusive striped bass. His lures are also sold in California, Hawaii, Europe and the Great Lakes area for all types of fishing in fresh water and saltwater.
