Muskie Train Enterprises - Sponsor of Fishing For A Cause with She's So Fly

Hi Everyone, I discovered this article about Muskie Train Enterprises on  As you know, Muskie Train Enterprises is one of my "Fishing For A Cause" partners and sponsers and you can see their custom painted lures for this cause by video on the "home page".  This article and video explains what type of lures they offer and how they make them.

March 3, 2010 - Tackle Review

We caught up with Muskie Train at the 2010 Ohio Muskie Expo.

All lures are hand crafted from cedar wood. The bodies are turned on the lathe, sealed and painted. Once the paint has cured an epoxy coating is applied to give the lure body a tough, durable finish. The screw eyes and diving lip are then installed. You will notice on my baits the oversized screw eyes. These eyes are 1 7/16″ long to ensure a strong anchor into the bait. The larger eye allows for increased movement, which allows the lure to have a greater range of movement. Once the hooks and split rings have been attached to the lure, each one is hand tested.

All three styles of lures can be seen below. The color chart chart shows only the Mordas Minnow, but the colors are applicable to the larger baits. Custom colors are available upon request. Please use the link provided to contact us for special colors.
