Maritime Tackle Owner Jason Levine, Weston Leslie and Capt. Gene Vanderhoek after a day of fishing Kona, HI.
Weston Leslie is one of the next generation Kona lure crafters that has swiftly gained a following among top big game captains and anglers around the globe. Wes isn't a numbers guy but the lures he puts out feature expert craftsmanship and some of the cleanest pours you've ever seen. Weston is a trusted friend of Maritime Custom Tackle and he has given us the opportunity to offer some truly special lures. We are going to have a hard time parting with them...they're that nice. We have skirted all his 12" Plungers and Tubes in matching vinyl, and they came out killer.
In the March 2015 Marlin Magazine article titled, "Lure Fishing Secrets of The Pros," top captains around the world divulged their top 5 lures. Kona, Hawaii Capt. Gene Vander Hoek, of Sea Genie II fame does things a little differently, pulling 4 lures in his spread. His top 5 included lure(s) by Weston Leslie and his 5th is a backup of his top 4 baits! So, which one of Wes' lures are in his top 4(5)? We found out the answer when we fished with Gene in mid-May 2019...
We are extremely proud to offer Leslie Lures to our customers. Be on the lookout for more releases as we grow our business and expand our offering.
