Skirmish Baits was founded by and is owned by Chris Turner, age 39, a military veteran with over 12 years of service who loves bass fishing and the outdoors. Chris served in Iraq, Germany and Kosovo as a tank commander of an M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank. Chris has been married to his wife for 12 years, and they have 3 beautiful girls. Chris enjoys taking other vets out bass fishing whenever he has the chance.

Skirmish Baits specializes in custom painted hard baits, at reasonable prices so the average fisherman can have the same quality custom painted lures as the touring pro. Each bait we sell is painted by Dwain Batey at Bait Werks Custom Lure Painting. Every bait is also ready to ship out to you if it shows in stock on our site. Chris and Dwain, as well as the Pro Staff thoroughly test each model before it’s released on the site, we only sell what we use ourselves.  

Owner,

Chris Turner
