A FISH TAIL

Thank you for visiting and for your interest in the incredible custom spinnerbait, DIKBAIT For Big Girls.

People ask me how I came up with the name “DIKBAIT.” The answer is, I find fishing to be fun, and with the name Dikki Ball, the stage was set for a life of fun! I decided to merge the two into a catchy (pun intended) product name. The “For Big Girls” phrase relates to the egg-laden, scale-tipping, tournament-winning fish. The kind of fish every angler wants to catch!

My wife and I live within miles of Lake Taneycomo, Bull Shoals Lake, Table Rock Lake, Beaver Lake, and many other incredible lakes here in the Ozarks. Fortunately, I have spent my entire life fishing some of the best waters in the United States.

There is nothing quite like pulling a monster 30 pound striped bass from Beaver Lake, then driving to Table Rock Lake and fighting some of the fiercest blue gills. This is the place for an angler to live, where many bass professionals honed their skills and come back to take on big money tournaments.

For over 50 years, everything in my life has somehow revolved around fishing. Every day I look forward to casting a line from my fishing boat, or a nearby bridge or just taking it easy and fishing from the shore. I can do this all day; catching fish from the wee hours of the morning, seeing the sunrise and then watching the stars come out as the sun sets over these amazing waters. If you can’t tell, I love to fish. In fact, my quest is all about catching the “Big Girl” fish.

I have always enjoyed going after some of the trophy bass that are in the waters here, but it was not until I joined the local bass fishing club that my passionn for bass fishing was ignited. While I love to hook a crappie, a walleye or blue gill, there is nothing like getting a largemouth bass to crush your lure.

I spent time with local bass gurus and fished alongside them in tournaments, competitions, and for just plain old fun. I co-angled with some of the best - guys that seemed to have a big bass magnet at the end of their line. I have also fished as an angler and developed my own skills.

I love to get the aggressive Big Girls on the line, the type that creep near the shore or under the cover of a structure. They fight to the last ounce of energy and that’s where the action is! But, this type of fish is pretty difficult to find, with statistics showing they live in only 10% of the water of any given lake. This means you have to cover a lot of surface area with your lure to have any chance of even getting a strike. 

Before I linked up with some of the local bass pros, I would use any old lure and try to cover as much ground as I could. Then I noticed they were using spinnerbait, which could cover a large area in a short amount of time. I’ve used spinnerbait before, but they were using custom rigs. Every time we would hit the lake, their spinnerbait would be different, which meant it was new and attractive to the fish. No expense was spared on the spinnerbait either, these were ultra-high quality and incredibly beautiful rigs that even looked appetizing to me!

One day, one of the guys offered me a chance to fish with one of his custom spinner baits. I saw the Big Girls these guys were pulling up all day long, so I jumped at the offer. I rigged it up, cast it under an old concrete piling, and within minutes I had a 15 pound stripe bass fighting for its life. This was amazing!

I remembered to the time when I was a kid and melted down lead weights to make my own jig heads. I did some pretty unusual stuff, but I used quality components and found that I could fish any spot with success. 

My passion for custom fishing lures had been re-ignited.

For years, I’ve been fishing with custom rigs and I wanted to share the thrill with other anglers who have the same passion for fishing. The idea of DIKBAIT evolved into a completely custom spinnerbait. It's made from the highest quality components and incorporates a unique, creative approach to making the best presentation for the fish.

Regardless of the weather conditions, the water conditions, night time or day time, or anything else you can think of, DIKBAIT is the spinnerbait that will show so much flash to the fish, they will not be able to resist it. DIKBAIT is also designed for longevity, so you will have years of fishing with the best custom spinnerbait on the market. 

Every single spinnerbait we make is proudly handcrafted right here in the Ozarks, USA. Missouri is the “show-me” state and with DIKBAIT, you can turn those fishing stories into a true “show-me” special when you produce those incredible hogs to your buddies.

Recreational anglers, pros, and guides have used DIKBAIT with unmatched success . . . it is time for you to get in on the action. Try DIKBAIT now!

Here's to many Big Girls at the end of your line,

-Dikki
