Grumpy Goby was our first soft plastic bait, conceived in Waterloo, Ontario to address the exploding need for Goby baits in the Great Lakes region. As Gobies expanded their presence to the area, anglers noticed a considerable change in feeding behaviour, switching feeding habits from traditional smelt and minnows to Round Goby. Tournament anglers, charter captains, avid anglers and weekend warriors all changed their approach to fishing, moving to Goby patterns and colors. For trollers, spoons changed from silver to copper. For bass anglers and anyone casting, moving to Goby imitations meant catching more fish - however, the selection of Goby baits was limited. Enter GRUMPY Bait Company and our first Goby imitation - Grumpy Goby. This is a hand-designed bait this is proven to catch more fish than even traditional methods such as tube jigs.
