We look forward to seeing what the future of the trapping community holds for us all.

--Kyle & Kellen Kaatz

Our history

Kaatz Bros. Lures was founded in 1995 when Kyle and Kellen mixed their first lure at the kitchen table while mom was away. In this pre-internet era we built our brand from 100,000s of convention miles, writing articles, fur trapping across the country, and doing nuisance work during the off season. In essence that experience is the foundation of what Kaatz Bros is today. The products we put our name on have many miles behind them and have stood the test of time.

So much has changed in trapping over the last 21 years, it's been a refreshing opportunity to embrace these changes. Here at Kaatz Bros, our goals have not changed since we started. Although we have changed immensely as people, we still pride ourselves on maintaining the many contacts and relationships we've developed.

When many people refer to the trapping public, they use the term "industry". Because a certain percentage of trappers have been fortunate enough to make their living from trapping, lure-making, fabrication, or supply dealing, the term 'industry' seems to be practical. Based on the many great friendships we've maintained throughout the years with trappers, we prefer to use the term 'community' to refer to the collective group of us that call ourselves trappers.
