Walt's Custom Crankbaits is veteran owed and operated. With over 35 years of fishing experience the owner has been fishing every since he could hold a fishing pole. 

Walt grew up in Mississippi and joined the Marines shorty after graduating high school. Then he left the Marines in 2003 with an honorable discharge, and went to college at Arkansas State University. He was hired as an Arkansas State Trooper in 2004 and left the State Police in 2009 when he went back in the Marines. He will retire in 2023 with 20 years of service. 


He loves working with disable veterans and the youth.
