A Letter From Menace Baits Owner and Founder Anthony Awgul

Thank you for your interest in my company, Menace Baits. I was born in 1999 and I'm from Quakertown, Pennsylvania. I am majoring in Business Administration at the Pennsylvania State University graduating with the class of 2021. Fishing has always been my passion and operating my own fishing lure company has provided me with an opportunity to pursue my dreams while gaining valuable marketing and management experience.

Menace Baits is founded upon our innovative jig concept, The Menace Jig. Designed and developed by tournament bass anglers, this bait is the most revolutionary fishing lure on the market! The Menace Jig has to potential to catch fish on any body of water, in any condition because it is so versatile. This bait is very easy to use and its results are amazing, making it a top choice for anglers from beginners to professionals!

Our company and jig concept gets its name because the Menace Jig is, "The Greatest Threat on the Water!" There is no other fishing lure in the industry that has the potential to produce results anywhere, and anytime quite like the Menace Jig does. In addition, we have the most dedicated staff and partners in the industry who are committed to taking our company to the top. What separates us from the other guys is our passion, drive, and dedication for our business and the fishing industry. Not only does that make us, "The Greatest Threat on the Water," but also the greatest threat in the industry!

When you make a purchase from Menace Baits, you are directly supporting the dreams and education of my staff and me. I am very grateful for my customers, followers, sponsors, staff, and partners for their continued support for my company. I invite you to join our movement and arm yourself with our products so you too are a part of, "The Greatest Threat on the Water!"
