About Us

from Marlin Magazine…

“It usually takes a long ride to get deep, productive water when fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. And unless you live close to some oil rigs, you’ll have to cover a lot of ground over a virtually flat bottom to find the fish. To be successful, most boats here pull lures. The boys at Makaira Pulling Lures grew up in the deep blue waters offshore of Louisiana, and their new line of lures shows off their blue-water heritage.

Hand-poured, hand-finished and hand-polished in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Makaira Pulling Lures were tested and proven in the Gulf and the Caribbean. These Lures don’t sport any angler-catching features like flashing lights or noisemakers (no batteries required). These are just great, old-school designs that catch fish.

Makaira Pulling Lures come in a variety of styles and sizes, ranging from large to small slants that dart and swim to scoop-nose and Yap-style pushers that run straight and true. The clear-resin heads feature colored reflective-tape inserts and large moving eyes. The company skirts the lures with either Mold Craft or Ocean Lure Concepts material in a wide variety of colors.”
