Danny L. King is the "Father" of the "Original" Catfish Punch Bait. Danny made and marketed the first punch bait in June of 1966. In 1991, after many years of experimenting with different ingredients, he and his wife Ruth decided to take the bait to the general public. It has proven over and over again that it will catch catfish, large and small in all types of water, from Texas to Illinois and all in between. Ruth King, Danny's wife, was the person responsible for traveling and pushing to get the punch bait to the general public. She convinced Danny to talk with fishermen about how to fish and use the bait properly. The bait is now sold in numerous stores across the nation. Danny King's Catfish Punch Bait is the #1 bait sold in lots of states.
With the decline of his wife's health, Danny has had to cut back on his aggressive schedule of seminars and tournaments. Beginning in 2012 Danny has returned to providing "how to" seminars at Boat and Tackle shows in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. His years of experience coupled with his exceptional bait has once again made him a "show" favorite. In addition, he is providing the quality assurance on all of the bait now produced under his name. He is ensuring the bait is as good or better than it has been and that any problems from the past are resolved and not repeated. He stands behind every jar produced at our new Texas location. If it doesn't say "TEXAS", it's not the tried and true Danny King's formula.
