YUM Lures: Made In America?

Recommended Posts

With so many companies opting to manufacture their products overseas, it's refreshing to see a major company like YUM make everything in America....

Wow thanks for posting this, I didn't realize that Yum made everything here.  I already use plenty of their products, but now I will be using more.

Excuse my goofy tongue out.  That big girl did not excuse the YUM Craw Chunk.

It doesn’t hurt that they also seem to underprice the competition fairly often,

Dick’s Sporting Goods has the bulk packs of 30 Dingers on sale 2 for $15 

 

They also have Yum baits on sale $2 a pack if you buy 5 or more.

I didn't think they made their products in the us with the price point they keep. I'm definitely going to buy more of their stuff now.

I may have to check out their products again. I bought some Yum baits probably 20 years ago and never caught anything on any of them. I never bought anymore and the ones I tried I believe they quit making. Probably 95% of my soft plastics now are Zoom.

A Texas rigged 4" Yum Dinger caught my first fish, a smallmouth. 

 

When my son wanted to try fishing, I set him up with a Texas rigged 4" Yum Dinger.

 

Caught his first fish, a smallmouth.

 

Bonus points: Made in the USA

If you get a bass that big, you don't have to apologize for the tongue hang.

They make my favorite hollow paddle tail swimbait (Money Minnow).  My brother uses nothing but a pumpkin with chartuse tail Dinger on the upper James River.  I didn't know everything was made in USA, but I'll have to look over the offerings again.

I was just rigging up rods this morning for a trip Thursday. Tipped my jig with my trusted green pumpkin Christie Craw, put a weightless black Dinger on to follow up any misses I might have on my topwaters, and put a green pumpkin Genie Worm on a bubba shot for pitching into the trees. One of my favorite plastic makers for sure, and the fact that they're make in the USA is a big bonus.

Glad to see products made in the US. I have purchased some Yum Dingers and I do like them. Also like buying from some of our sponsors that make products in the US.

They use to make a twin tail lizard that I really like and wish they'd bring back. I still have a few bags left. I guess the Christie Critter took its place.

fyi - those are definitely NOT actors in the video.  I've met some of them.  They really are who they say they are. There's even a few cameo appearances by some of the upper managers. Cool vid.  All authentic...very genuine.

I have really been liking yum products this year.  Christie critter, yum dinger, and one of the craws ( can’t remember right now ).  Price is good too

Craw Papi 2.75” is one of my favorite jig trailers, especially on a Sk Bitsy Bug

I am in manufacturing, and I love it! I can very much appreciate this video, and understand the heart it takes to make something. I started using Riverside by Yum when I was too poor to buy anything else, and was beating the banks from a bike. Now I use yum dingers by the boat load. I want to try their frog and christie craw too. Thanks for sharing.

 Yum-Dinger Junbug is my number one lure of all time.  Always have those things with me: kayak fishing, john boat fishing or bank fishing, always have my number one bass catcher lure with me.
