ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Have you heard about the two kids from St. Paul, brothers, actually, who started their own bait company and are now getting the attention of pros?

They produce their own fishing videos, hawk their brand with shoe-leather savvy, and have landed a sponsorship of sorts, being named to the "pro staff" ranks of a major fishing-gear manufacturer.

Live bait could pull in some series dough as I recall.

minnows and leeches.. and worms..

good luck to these two with their jigs.

I wish I was jigging for crappies right now.. but we’re in a drought. :-)

Can we look for a future TV show called Jig Dynasty? Or would someone cry “Racis!”

I used to catch tons of large mouth bass as a youngster with my own homemade jigs.

They were nothing but the white plastic tips from Tiparillo cigars with a #2 long shank hook mounted through it and the hollow filled with lead shot and epoxy glue.

I'd use glue and bits of cork for a floating jig. The bass went after them like Barry Bonds goes after a high fastball. Probably should have patented it.

I’m more interested in that Citadel 9mm M1 look-a-like carbine using Beretta 92 mags.

If there is lead in the jigs the EPA will be all over these guys.

If they turn a profit, the state and the IRS will be all over them.

Is there proof they have signed up for Obamacare?

PETA can't abide people who create devices to torture fish.

Has OSHA inspected their place?

Does the city know they have a business in a residential zone?

...I could go on for hours.
