Steve McQuin - Driven to Better
March 16, 2015


Steve McQuin is the co-owner, along with his wife, of Slop Frog Baits. This artisan bait company focuses on hand-poured baits designed and produced in the USA. More than just a product, Slop Frog represents a dream of small town, individual bait designers to be able create something that can help anglers not just locally, but across the country.

Slop Frog was founded by the lure’s designer, Jim Torgerson and was recently purchased by the McQuins. While a talented designer and avid fisherman, Jim wasn’t as well versed in the business side of things. The combination of Jim’s designs and the McQuins’ marketing and production abilities made Slop Frog a national brand that can be found in specialty bait shops and regional retailers alike.
