Bobby Garland was a legend in the fishing world. Garland was a well-known and very well respected bass fisherman, who was responsible for a number of innovative lure designs including the Gitzit and Spider Grub. After selling his bass fishing company in the late 90's, Garland still had the itch to produce lures of some kind so he went back to work and developed panfish lures inlcude the Split Tail and Baby Shad crappie soft plastics that hit production lines in 2001. Sadly, Garland died in 2006 at age 67, but he left a legacy within the fishing world that is rare - he is recognized for both his fishing prowess and his incredibly brilliant lure designs. After his death, Gene Larew Lures acquired the Bobby Garland product line in January 2007 and intends to keep the newly acquired brand specific to crappie baits and accessories. Among the most popular items in the Garland lineup today are the Baby Shad, Split Tail and Slab Dockt'R.
