We love to Hunt Big Fish. For years Capt. Rick Banks (Dr. Snook) has been designing fish catching lures. We use
a System Matched Color System for consistent Color Patterns.  
 A Little History: Our lures are tournament tested
with top three finishes in the inshore Redfish trail, We even took top honors at the HEWES/Maverick Captiva
Owners event with First, Second and Third place finish in the same event. We placed 6th overall in the Ranger
Redfish Trail on its first year tournament Classic. Capt. Rick Banks Sponsors have included HEWES/Maverick
Pathfinder Boats, Ranger Boats, Pure Fishing with Berkley, Fenwick ABU Garcia and Spider Wire. We even did a
TV Show on inshore Snook with Barry Stokes OUTDOOR Trails on ESPN, Barry and Capt. Shaw Foster Gave him
the Title Dr.Snook . We have been featured in Sport Fishing Magazine, Florida Sportsmen Magazine, Today
Newspaper, Miami Herald and Orlando Sentinel. Radio Shows with Florida Sportsman and Something Fishy with
Capt. Al Phillips.
After Years of experience fishing the Salt Marshes of central Florida and The Monster Bass of the St Johns
River. We Moved to North East Tennessee To work on further design and testing of our lures on Big Brown
Trout, Gigantic Stripers, Small Mouth Bass. This study has lead to several new Lure Designs as well as monster
Along the way we have had Professional Field support from Capt., Shawn Foster, Capt. Tony Nesotas And My
Tournament Partner Mike Cook From the Redfish tour.
So weather your fishing Salt or Fresh we have the lure for you.  Let our years of experience both personally and
professionally help you get your next big catch. Or Better yet Book a Charter with us at
