I'm wondering if any of y'all have fished lures made by Ryan Hickey and if so, what are your thoughts on his lures?

I’ve got a few of his pikies from a couple years ago, solid plugs, swim great with a wake on top.  Seems like he’s one of the “hot” builders these days. 

 

I gotta give em a more honest shot I’ve been bad about putting different plugs in rotation the last few years. Can’t get myself to throw anything but a Doc, GRS giant, or a 9” Shad.

It's funny, i found out about his lures through skateboarding. He used to be a pro.

I can guarantee you that they don't catch anymore fish than 100 different builder's plugs. They may catch a few more fishermen these days but not fish. I'm not criticizing his work it looks very nice. But you are fooling yourself to think you need a Hickey plug to catch bass.

Im the builder of those plugs . Im not one of these guys who just started building and is selling pretty paint . I only sell 4 styles of plugs and every design is tested for a few seasons on its fish catching ability .. I have been building for over ten years and have had many fish in the 40's caught on my plugs the biggest being 52# ..
