ABOUT WOW FACTOR FISHING
In 2017 Capt. Mark Shepard found himself fishing on Lake Okeechobee with a new client, Bill Blagg. During a 3-hour afternoon “slow-down” of catching no fish, Capt. Mark looked at Bill and said, “When I get into situations like this…I go in here to my secret little stash and I tie one of these on.” Moments later the 3-hour “slow-down” was instantly over as cast after cast produced bass after bass. Bill looked at Mark and said, “What is this?” The rest is history.
What Mark tied on that day was his original, tournament winning balsa wood square bill crankbait. It took Mark several years of carving to come up with the perfect design which was then produced by the Awesome Bait Co. under the brand-name ThunderShad. An itch to return to the pro tour would see Mark’s design disappear from the market and become a secret, prized catching machine of pros across the country.
Today, Mark and Bill have joined forces to bring his original square bill design back to the market! Manufactured to Mark’s exact specifications while using a new, revolutionary material Mark and Bill are excited to introduce the Shepard Shad 2.0! Looking to the future, Wow Factor Fishing is dedicated to bringing back and manufacturing some of hardest baits in the country to find which are now long-guarded secrets of the pros. These “old school” designs are proven fish catching machines and Wow Factor Fishing is excited to lead the revolution and bring them to the masses. Stay tuned for new releases coming soon!
