Crampton Baits were handmade by legendary Captain and lure maker Scott Crampton, who gained most of his experience in Kona, Hawaii before settling in Texas a few years before his passing in early 2021. Despite being produced in limited numbers, his baits were coveted by the "Who's Who" of Marlin fishing and rarely left their spreads. Prior to his death, we helped sell his lures to fishermen all over the world. Steve was a fantastic human being and will surely be missed - Most definitely the case with us at GZ.
This batch of Cramptons came from a legendary Kona Captain - You can tell he put them to good use by the hits some of them took. They most definitely caught some big fish in their days. See the condition above for actual lure condition. We had to pay a hefty price for these gems, so that is the reason for their prices being closer to Yees. This was the first opportunity we had to bring some in since before his passing, so we didn't want to pass that one up.
The Crampton Baits HoG is a large 14" straight runner shaped head with a slight and steady taper towards the angled nose. Swims fairly straight and stays on top. Excellent lure for Marlin especially. Best from either the short corner or long corner positions.
This particular head has gorgeous real shell slabs over the insert inside an ice blue resin pour. Skirted in blue vinyl over green and black Tuff Tails.
