Asked what it is about your job that you like the most? Coach adds “being a true fisherman it is being involved in the fishing business, but I’m a people person at heart it is the day to day interacting with all of the pros and the customers that call in asking about baits that we make, and I have been known to give them a few fishing tips also along the way”. You can catch some of Les’s best tips on the popular Rig It LIVE weekly segment on the Big Bite Baits Instagram account, which typically airs Thursdays at 3PM CST.
