I started flipping jigs and fishing shallow brush with spinnerbaits 35 plus years ago on San Carlos Lake in Arizona. We also owned and operated a fishing guide business on Canyon and Saguaro Lakes in southern Arizona for many years and had a blast doing it. For ten years I fished the Allstar Bass team and pro/am tournaments, as well as Won bass team tournaments and B.A.S.S. pro/am events. I was honored to be a guest on ESPN talk radio and the featured guest on Chuck Treebrook Outdoors TV show. My career highlight from a personal perspective was giving a seminar with the legendary Bill Dance at the Peoria Sports Complex on behalf of Procraft boats. Bill was my hero growing up and that was a real honor for me. One of our primary goals at Fat Bass Custom Bait's is to continue making the finest custom Spinnerbaits, Swim Jigs, Hair Jigs, Bladed Swim Jigs, Flipping Jigs & Saltwater Jigs available and helping to raise money and awareness to help the one million plus Veterans and their families that suffer from PTSD. Many of these wonderful men and women have suffered physical, emotional and psychological disorders and desperately need our help.

At Phat Bass Custom Bait's we pride ourselves in being a company where honesty, integrity and moral decency stand for something. Know that every time you place an order with Phat Bass Custom Bait's you are helping to make the world a better place, because we donate 10% of every order to helping our Veterans that suffer from PTSD. We also offer free first class shipping on all orders and have a 100% money back guarantee on every bait that we sell. We love America, we love our Veterans and we deeply appreciate the monumental sacrifices they have made on our behalf. Our Son, Dustin Howard Owens was a US Airman that gave his life for our country on March 19th, 2014. I cannot think of any cause more important than supporting those who defend our freedom.

Along with Bass fishing, my other obsessions in life are spending time with my wife, Sally, who is my best friend, and bowhunting elk. Every year I spend most of September backpacking into wild remote country out west chasing bugling bulls. Backpacking into remote wilderness area's and chasing elk with my bow has been a life consuming endeavor for me that continues to drive and motivate me. In 25 years of chasing bulls on public land in Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming and Idaho, I have been blessed to have called in and harvested 23 elk with my bow. Sally and I absolutely love eating elk meat, elk tacos are to die for.

Joe's two favorite quotes:

With knowledge that we are all children of God, we can stand a little taller, rise a little higher and be a little better. Gordon B. Hinckley.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable. John F. Kennedy.

God bless America, we thank you for your support.
