Welcome to Smity Bait and Guide Service! We are proud to say that we are celebrating out 50th year this year. Russ started this business back in 1970. He caught his first muskie on a handmade lure in 1955 at the age of 13 and so began his love for custom, homemade lures. Read more about his story in our about us section.
