Pictured is a new prototype color that we offered in our Featured Product section on our Galida’s Grubz webpage. The pictures show a green pumpkin with purple and green flake grub. My former fishing partner Jeff Barkley and I caught some nice smallmouth on them. This color was by far the most popular offering of our Featured Products this year. At that time we also asked for possible names for this grub from our followers.
The name we chose for this grub like many of our other colors has a story behind it. First of all, the name of that prototype color is now DRAGON. According to Ernie Pate, this color is almost identical to a color that his deceased brother Kenny favored in his creature baits. This was unknown to me, as well as Kenny’s nickname, The Dragon. This made the decision an easy choice.
The fishermen around Pennsylvania are very familiar with the Pate family. The level of success of every team this family has offered is well documented, starting with their father, Ernie Senior. Back in the day, I know “Pap” caught 100’s of fish on our original Smoke Grub. His loyalty and that of his 3 sons is a big part of the history and success of our brand.
With fall weather and fishing now starting, things are getting Grubby. From now till the end of October, you can purchase a 25 pack of Dragon for $5.99 or 2/25 packs for $10.00. As usual, this purchase can be added to your regular Galida’s Grubz order for free shipping at $25.00.
