Since the beginning of this year, we’ve noticed many, many rumors floating over the internet about Zoom Bait Company.  So we wanted to set the record straight here and dispel some of these crazy rumors.


Dear Friends and Fans of Zoom Bait Company,

We’ve heard the rumors, we’ve read the internet chatter, and we are here to set the record straight. While the global pandemic that shook the world in 2020 changed everything in the short term, going forward we expect to be stronger than ever—but before we get into the specifics, let’s take on the rumors one by one:

  • Is ZOOM for sale? Definitely not.
  • Did the ZOOM factory burn down? No.
  • Are we going out of business? Absolutely not. In fact, business is as strong as ever.

Yes, it’s true, inventory has been low in recent months, mainly due to supply chain and raw material shortages that many manufacturers are experiencing now. We know that it is frustrating when you go to a store looking for your favorite Brush Hog color and can’t find them anywhere. But please know that our manufacturing is running at full capacity.

Zoom is still family-owned and operated since we began in 1977. We are excited about what the future holds for Zoom and will continue to produce and sell the greatest soft plastics available.

  1. Good news and much appreciated info. Don’t know how many good fishing years I have remaining, but I’ll have a Zoom plastic in my hand until the end.
