About Us

Earl-Brink-JrHello Friends,

My name is Earl Brink Jr.  I ran a guide service on Lake Erie and Lake Michigan from 1984-1997.  I fished for Perch, Walleye, Lake Trout and Salmon.  

I transferred jobs, along with my family in 1997 to Cumming, Georgia.  I began fishing Crappie Tournaments in 1998.  In 2001 I was unable to purchase Jigs that worked the way I wanted so I decided to make my own.  My goal was to provide the best colors and jigs to help capture Trophy Crappie.

I have had great success winning 3 Crappie Classic Tournaments using Show Down Crappie Jigs.  They are the 2002 NACA Classic Tournament, 2004 CAST Classic Tournament and the 2006 Bass Pro Shops, Crappie Master Classic Tournament.

Trophy Room

I have fished many lakes in the United States with Show Down Jigs and have proven results that show they work.  From Dock Shooting, Hand Held Poles to Spider Jig Trolling, you will not find a better quality Crappie, Perch, Walleye or Striper Jig on the market.

Show Down Crappie Jugs have been used by a number of top teams and fisherman around Crappie Tournament Trails and Professional Guide Services.  If you have questions in regards to how to fish Show Down Tackle, contact me personally.   If you have a custom Jig that you would like to have manufactured please contact me directly.

Purchase Crappie Jigs

I would also like to challenge anyone that fishes to take a child fishing to make their life more enjoyable and meaningful.
