News for 2023


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 non refundable 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. There is NO PREFERRED CUSTOMER LIST!!! 

Because multiple orders continue to be placed on plug drops, no refunds will be issued for shipping/handling fees paid for combined orders (when more than one order is placed on the same day). One and only one plug per person per address!!

BIG D-EEL is our new addition to the Mike's line-up and will be in my store ahead of schedule. Heavier than my current jointed eel, (which I will continue to produce with one belly treble), it will be C&R with one 5/0 belly treble. Im excited about this new addition to my lineup for 2023! My regular jointed eel has been re-designed with one 4/0 belly treble in the best intererest of you and the fish... C & R? yes please.

11/11/22   I reserve the right to cancel/refund any orders from customers that I suspect are involved in constantly flipping my plugs. Help in identifying these flippers is always appreciated. Any refunded payments will NOT include any of the PayPal charges incurred to me. This is probably two years too late, and to all my hard fishing surf buddys, I will try my hardest to get my plugs into your hands as you well know. I don't want to sound negative in any way, but I felt I had to say something about it. Tight Lines, Mike

 Just a reminder-- I'll be at the Ct. Surfcaster's Demo Day get together on Jan. 21, 2023. I will not be selling plugs, but I will be displaying all that I make and a couple new additions..I'm really more interested in shaking hands with customers new and old and talking about building plugs... and of course swapping fish stories. A great little get together put on by a great group of guys! Hopefully see you there!

  Looking forward to a new season of building and fishing as we get a little closer to Springtime! Commanders, Sidekick Spooks, and Baby Beast Darters are on the bench  for future drops. Thank you for using my plugs and I hope you all have a tremendous '23 season! Don't forget to send me C&R pics if and when you can, especially if you have pics of your kids or grand kids. Tight lines buds!
