About Kustom Kicker Jigs

Kustom Kicker is a veteran owned and operated company and all of our products are designed, developed and manufactured in house at our shop in Michigan.

The 2K Jigs Mission

Your satisfaction is our number one priority. We are committed to producing hand made quality fishing products in large quantities to keep up with your demand. Our focus is to constantly add new products to our line, with extreme attention to detail and ingenuity. Our goal is to competitively price products to meet industry demands for our customers, distributors and retailers.

The 2K Jigs Guarantee

Angling A.I. - It's ArtiFISHal Intelligence! Custom fishing lure molds for the angler who wants something the fish don't see all the time!

About Angling A.I. It's ArtiFISHal Intelligence!: Visit Angling AI for your aluminum fishing mold and custom bait design needs. Our flagship mold, "The Alpha Craw", was designed as a flippin' bait that allows a 4/0 straight-shanked hook to stay skin hooked and take the abuse of going through heavy vegetation. The Alpha Craw also holds a 4/0 EWG hook very well.

Although most of it's time in the water has been spent attached to a 1 ounce tungsten weight, it has also caught many fish on a texas rig! The baits are from a prototype mold and inject very well for not having any air reliefs in yet.

Angling AI lets the do-it-yourself individual or custom lure maker create unique lures and colors to give you or your customers an edge! Swimbaits, stick worms, tubes, craws, creature baits, worms, grubs and more!

About E.A.R.S. Sun Gear
I never thought it would happen to me! Yep, Basil Cell Carcinoma. One day a spot appeared on my right cheek below my eye.

It was diagnosed as basil cell carcinoma. After a couple of scares like that I did some research. I found that the tops of my ears were also at risk. I was shocked to learn that tops of the ears are the third most prevalent area men over 55 get this deadly skin cancer. That's why I created E.A.R.S. Sun Gear.
