A new manufacturer of lures and accessories has been set up in Kissimmee, Florida. CPF Lures is named after Chuck Pippin Jr., a co-founder of the company with Jason George.
CPF Lures will focus on soft plastic baits including worms, creatures, claws and other products for tournament pros and fishing guides.
Pippin began his career as a bass fishing guide in 1997 on West Lake Toho and the Kissimmee chain of lakes. After graduating he spent five years as a guide at Roland Martin’s Marina on Lake Okeechobee.
During this time, he began his career as a professional tournament angler fishing both the FLW Tour and the B.A.S.S. southern opens. In 2002, he moved back to the Orlando area to continue his guiding career on the surrounding lakes.
“We started CPF Lures with a vision of perfecting lures and tackle specifically for the tournament angler or professional guide,” says Pippin. “Our Pro Series baits are scientifically engineered for durability and usability and are offered in higher quantitities.
“The soft plastics are durable enough to allow for more hook sets and to catch more fish, yet are soft enough to puncture easily with a hook. The spongy feeling of the baits helps fish hang on longer due to the true-to-life feeling.”
