Big Guy Baits Big Guy Baits
Owner Babe Campbell is a custom musky lure builder. He grew up in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin and have been fishing since before he can remember. Growing up, we regularly cat-fished the Rock River. As a kid and young adult, he fished for Pike and bass and wouldn't have been able to tell you what a Musky was! Someone told me Musky are super hard to catch--Challenge accepted! I am a big bow hunter and know the challenges of hunting of elusive game, so hunting musky just fits. Fishing and wood working are two of my greatest passions so I decided to combine the two and Big Guy Baits was born. I have been married since 2006 and have 2 kids that love to fish and build minnow baits with me. Thanks for supporting a small business and musky shops! (815) 494-6919

Smity Bait Smity Bait & Guide Service
Russ Smith caught his first Muskie on a handmade lure in 1955 at the age of 13. Liking the idea of catching fish on a lure of his own, Russ continued to make lures for himself and friends. As it became apparent that the "Smity" was a proven muskie producer, local sports shops, gas stations and taverns began to ask for baits, and soon Russ was doing more than just making enough lures to pay for gas and food on his fishing trips.

Russ was constantly improving lures already in production. Paints, hardware and exterior finishes were tested day in and out by Russ and his field staff of muskie fanatics. Through the years many component changes were made and the result is a line of muskie lures second to none.
