Buckeye Lures was founded in the year 2000 by father and son Roy and Jeremy Altman. The early years were spent hand pouring lead headed jigs and sonar blades to stock some of the local tackle shops in the area surrounding Clark Hill Lake. In 2001 Roy Altman began retirement plans by fishing co-angler on the FLW tour and fulfilling a lifelong dream to fish national tournaments. While fishing with a pro during the Beaver Lake tournament he noticed a need for a stand up jighead to be used with all soft plastics. After doing some minor tooling the Spot Remover was born.
