Will this mean more $200 plugs in the buy/sell forum?

You have to scratch your head and wonder how a operation that makes really great plugs could not go on anymore. Sad to here this

It's really hard to believe, its even harder to believe that some other company didn't buy them out.

Give it a little time and then.... Look at what people will pay for a 706Z.

I'll agree with you on that. I tried making spinners and flounder rigs last year. I think with all that I made and sold I think I might have made 10 or 15 bucks. Glad I didn't jump right into the plugs and divers like I wanted to do.

I actually met Steve who makes the Troublemaker lures while I was in a shop buying a couple. Seemed like a really nice guy who made really nice plugs. I hope things will be on the up for him.
