How it started
Pili lures were Invented in the early 80’s by Peter Dunn Rankin. By using surfboard foam and resin he created a unique surface popper that revolutionized the topwater fishing world. Our lures have been Proven around the world from Poland, Florida, Midway, Japan, etc. Acquired in 1984 by Mark Santiago, the production moved to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Since then, several new models have been introduced incorporating the original foam core design. All lures are handmade in Hawaii.
