Allan Cole had a heart attack on the way home from the Fred Hall show... As many of you have already heard, Allan suffered a minor heart attack on the way home from the Long Beach Fred Hall Show. He was rushed to the hospital where the doctor told him he would need immediate open-heart surgery. Six of his major arteries were 90% blocked. The doctor told Allan he should have already died...but Allan had other plans.
After 8 hours of surgery, Allan emerged with a new lease on life. He declared "the bait wars are over"...meaning he is not going to be warring with the other guys who build similar style baits...kind of a peace offering. When his head cleared he decided to change the name of his business to the "AC PlugÂ® Swimbait Company". There are a few other swimbait companies...but how fitting is it that the "Godfather" of swimbaits should have that in his company name.
He is recovering well from his operation and is optimistic about getting back to building lures and catching big fish. Obviously, all orders, including the Casitas orders will be a little delayed. We appreciate your understanding about this matter and will get caught up on everything as soon as possible.
