Stinky Pants' humble beginning started out back in 2006 when I decided to make myself a stringer because I was unhappy with the stringers that were on the market. I wanted something durable and slick, so coated wire was the answer. Soon I was making them for my friends, and their friends. During all of this my son Wyatt was born and I was living the dream changing poopy diapers, so the name Stinky Pants just seemed to fit. Over the years I have made subtle changes to improve my design, but the same theme remains. I hand make each and every stringer in my shop in Boerne, Texas to give the avid angler the best possible stringer they can get. As a full time teacher, the stringer business is not something I was pursuing, but it just grew organically. The business is a labor of love that I take great pride in, and stand behind fully. I am not in it to make a fortune, but rather produce something I felt the fishing industry was sorely missing. The people I have met and friendships I have made from starting this little company are reward enough to continue on in my old fashion ways of making each stringer by hand.
I still remember this one moment, it was an incredible feeling. I walked out to the water from our home and chunked my swim bait as far as my reel would allow and began the retrieve. About three seconds into it, BAM!!! It was on, as I’m trying to land this fish it dawned on me, I don’t have a net and I’m standing on a pier about three feet above the water. I then decided to jump off the pier into the mud so I could land this big boy. There was no way I was going to lose the first fish that I had ever caught on my lures. So there I was, standing in knee deep mud, rod in my mouth, holding a 21’ red. At this point I was on cloud nine! I hauled butt back into our house, smiling from ear to ear. My wife was less than impressed but I think she was proud too, she just showed it a little differently due to the circumstances. She did take out her phone and take a picture because she knew it was special too. A year later here we are, our daughter just turned two years old and I’m fulfilling lure orders from people all over the Gulf Coast and some Northerners who love it for bass fishing. We have come a long way from making clay molds in the kitchen. I truly believe our swim baits are one of the best on the market and will withstand the bite of many fish, allowing you to fish more and not deal with replacing several torn baits. I really hope you enjoy these lures as much as I enjoy making them.
