After an imaginative break while offering in the United States Military, (Thank you Chris and also all who’ve offered) Chris obtained back right into to his passion for the arts. He did this by custom painting crankbaits in his New England basement. Integrating his love for both fishing and also the arts, the Bubonic Crankbait was birthed.
The Bubonic Bugz crankbait is a collaboration between the Catch Co. as well as underground lure musician Chris Grout. Like several hardcore musicians, Chris began sharpening his skills at a young age, but as he aged priorities simply altered. Often life gets in the way, you feel me?
On an EXTREMELY limited budget plan, Chris began to gradually grind it out day by day, painting custom cranks all from his teensy cellar shop. Prior to he knew it, Chris had actually put together a little however passionate underground following of appeal lovers across his social networks platforms.
Here’s where Catch Co. can be found in… By happenstance, eventually the Catch Co. CEO, Ross Gordon (additionally an angling fanatic) was thumbin’ through Instagram and also found the Bubonic cranks. With an eye for innovation and also real recognition for Chris’ job, Ross reached out. He was wishing to figure out a means we might collaborate and get Chris’ creative vision right into the hands of even more fishermens. After years of backward and forward, item advancement as well as growth, we lastly nailed down a crankbait with Chris, as well as they’re friggin’ sweet.
We’re beyond excited to roll out the new Bubonic partnership with our initial lure, the Bubonic Bugz Square Bill Crank.
The Bubonic Bugz is a floating, broad wobbling squarebill crankbait that dives between 2-4 feet. Readily available in nine of the sickest paint work available on the marketplace today, the new Bubonic Bugz crankbait will be something neither the fish or your fishing pals have actually ever before seen before.
