When COVID-19 hit I decided to combine my passion for fishing, art, and entrepreneurial spirit in an effort to utilize my spare time to start painting and selling lures. June 2020 LipRipperZBaits was born. My baits rapidly gained popularity amongst the local fishing community and I quickly learned the correlation between hard work and success. In no time, my baits began flying off the shelves in local tackle stores. One of my favorite parts is getting pictures of customers catches and hearing stories about how my baits aided in catching fish and making lifelong memories. I am so thankful for all the support along the way and I can't wait to see what the future holds.
