2009 ISE Sacramento
Custom lures, Pros, and more at the 2009 International Sportsmen's Expo
Dog and JSJ: Why are we covering both Black Dog and JSJ baits in the same
section? The two companies formed an alliance prior to the show and to have some
fun they exchanged lures and each company painted the other brand's product with
some very limited edition designs. The result... some of the coolest and hottest
selling swimbaits at the show.
Jermemy (Black Dog Baits) and Josh
(JSJ) swapped lures before the show and painted them for some very exclusive
limited edition lures
The lures retailed for 10 dollars more each, but

companies they received a 10 dollar discount and a free T-Shirt.

It didn't end just at their brands, Jeremy of
Black Dog Baits decided to do up a few Tru-Tungsten swimbaits as well and added
extra custom details and realism to these baits. By the time we got to the booth
almost all of the custom lures had already sold. When we asked Jeremy (BDB) and
Josh (JSJ) if this was just for the show or we would see more of these bait
swaps for production they answered that for now this was a special for the show
only. We can only hope that they partner up again for future events.
