What Is The Hybrid-Skirt?

The Hybrid-Skirt series of lures blends together buck tail (deer) hair with a rubber skirt.  The buck tail is first hand tied.  A rubber skirt is then overlaid on top, giving a unique multi-textured appearance rarely seen within the industry.  The movement of the bucktail provides a "sinewy" motion while the rubber skirt adds an outward flare to the bait.  In addition, the buck tail works to conceal the hook, further helping to mask any unnatural shine given off by the metal.  Each lure is hand tied with high durability, waxed thread.  No rubber bands are used.  Check them out now before the secret gets out!

When I won the ABA RAM Truck Open, I was throwing the Hybrid Vibe.  After landing 40 fish (at least 12 over three pounds), the lure was still intact.

Amazing service.  Real hand-tied lures custom made. Shipping was cheap and extremely fast. His colors and his vibe are amazing. Great job!

Juan Rojas

Durable products with great action and presentation. They are taking over my jig box as the other brand jigs fall apart or just can't keep up.

Storm Timberlake

Awesome hand tied lures. The gentlemen who runs the business is respectful and awesome at what he does. Whether it's customer service or just simply a talk about bass fishing, he'll take the time to make sure you're taken care of. I highly recommend the Hybrid Vibes!

When you get them in the mail you are instantly impressed with the colors...I put my faith in the Hybrid Vibe for a local tournament and helped me to catch some of the few bass out of everyone in that tournament

How It Began

After being routinely disappointed in the longevity and overall quality of mass produced bass lures, I began to hand tie my own.  Upon posting a few pictures of these creations (namely the Hybrid-Skirt) on social media, a few requests turned into a handful.  What started out as a personal endeavor quickly turned into a small internet business during the fall of 2016.  With the help of many friends, both new and old, business has steadily increased since its inception. Despite this, the primary focus, high quality products and superior customer service, of Nate's Custom Baits has not (and will not) change!  My goal is to provide new and unique colors and variations of lures that I have not seen on the market.  As a lifelong fisherman myself, I am aware of the importance in finding a lure or pattern that the fish have not seen.  This piece of information has served as the cornerstone for every NCB lure created.
