About Magnetic Marine Products
Magnetic Marine Products was founded in the winter of 2010 by John Gesik, inventor of the original Gear Grabbar line of boat accessories. The launch of this new company originated in Grand Rapids Michigan, an area rich with some of the best fishing in the Midwest. It was right here that the idea of the lure/tool holder boat accessory was stumbled upon when John left his magnetic name badge in his boat before a fishing trip. John always had lures and gear laying all over his boat. By chance, the magnetic name badge found its way to a hook and there it was!!!! 3 years and multiple prototypes later the launch of Gear Grabbar happened at Grand Rapids' own 2010 Ultimate Sportshow.
John’s passion for fishing can be traced back almost 40 years. Coming from a huge family of fishermen, John grew up fishing for just about every species in the Midwest. In the past few years John has focused on developing new organizational boat accessories to make everyone’s fishing experience more enjoyable, productive and safer. Our philosophy here at Magnetic Marine Products is to go beyond the norm and create new innovative products with fishermen and their families in mind.
