He definitely still makes baits. It seems Facebook rules the muskie information and bait buying world these days. Personally, I don’t care for what its done to the sport and bait prices, but whatever. Fun to look on Facebook, but glad i learned how to catch muskies the old fashioned way and don’t need to buy many baits at inflated prices. Nothing specific towards Zach...referring more towards the buy/sell forums and raffles.

Are they expensive? I did a reel/rod swap a few years ago and had a couple Bakers thrown in. I hadn't ran them much until finally catching a WB musky on one last year. Saturday I had one get ripped 5 times! I damaged it out of frustration when I lost a pig at boatside! I want another one, but not if they cost an arm and a leg.
I think his retail prices at the shows are fair, but there is usually a line for his booth and he sells out rather quickly. Most of the Bakers i see on facebook are sold by individuals in a raffle style format. They bring pretty big money (usually about 10 spots at $10 or $100 for a 5” bait) Not sure how you may get one otherwise. I think the demand is higher than the supply in the case of Bakers.
