Enticer Tackle has been making quality fishing tackle since 1989. I started out supplying lead head jigs and slip bobber stops to small bait & tackle shops. But it was not soon after that I started making musky and northern pike baits. Thus, in 1990 came the Squid-Tail. After introduction of the Squid-Tail, I started fishing in musky tournaments. It was while fishing musky tournaments that I decided there was a need for a small to medium-size bucktail, a size where a person could cover a lot of water quickly. So in 1994 I came out with the Enticer.

Hirsch’s Ghosttails is a family run business for over 25 years. The business started as an alternative to the limited selection of unique and quality buck tails on the market.

When Ghosttails began the color explosion was happening on other lures for other species but not in musky. That is where we used our sense of colors and various combinations to catch the attention of the old and the new generation musky fisherman.

Back in the 1950’s, Muskies were on the minds of two Wisconsin men who fished the waters of the Northwoods. Wanting a lure with greater Muskie appeal, they developed the Gopher. Designed to mimic the swimming action of a small rodent, the original lure looked like a small gopher with its brown, flock finish.

After the lure proved to be successful, they added several new colors and began selling them as The Gopher Bait Company. The original Gopher is now considered semi-rare by collectors.
