News for 2022!


Catch & Release Series (C & R)  ~          Big D-EEL


New for 2022! - the C&R Big D-EEL is twice the diameter of my standard jointed eel and a couple inches longer!  I wanted a single treble catch and release version added to my line-up with a bigger treble hook-this one is 5/0. After testing this Spring, I’ll pick the version of this plug that I like best (I’ve built several of them to test) and build them later in the year, probably late summer/early Fall. Should be around 3.2 oz.+- and 14"+ including the flag. Stay tuned.

Gen 2 Rogue Bottle Darters are being tested as we speak- will keep you all posted on new changes/developments! 

Just a reminder: 

We do our best to try to catch multiple orders placed in a day and combine them into one shipment resulting in a shipping/handling refund (less a $3.00 handling fee), but make no promises.   All too often we make several trips to the Post Office throughout the day and are unable to combine shipments.

In addition any order that exceeds the limit of one plug per style will be refunded in full LESS the processing fees imposed by PayPal.


I no longer use Facebook to announce plug drops, so any new friend requests will not be answered as was the case previously. Friends Who Love Mike's Custom Plugs (a private group started by one of my customers) is used to post pics of plugs/fish caught using my trading or selling is allowed and posts are monitored by the moderators for approval.


 4/27/22 Jointed Trollers will now have one 5/0 treble going forward. Catch and Release is our goal here at Mike's.
