Antique lures

7 posts in this topic

I was reminiscing with my grandfather of some old fishing trips and stories. He was telling my about these two fishing lures that were deadly. He unfortunately lost both of these the same day. I was thinking that these would be a great Christmas present. I am not exactly sure if these are the correct names, but I believe that they are a Spin-a-diddy, and a Nip-a-diddy??? Any information would be very helpful…

Maybe a Deep-R-Doodle?

I believe I have one.

What a great gift!! Let me look at my lures and if I have a spare I can send you one. I collect lures and have a closet full that I am slowly getting rid of.

Actually, I was thinking of a different lure. Is it a topwater lure? If so, it could be a Nip-I-Diddee. They are still being made by Luhr-Jensen. I believe they still make them in wood too.

Search the web for Luhr-Jensen and do a search of their lures. The Nip-I-Diddee is listed there is a variety of colors.

I think that is one cool gift.

He will be surprised they are still made and will wonder why he didn't buy them years ago!

As for some great lures, why were they ever discountinued? If they caught fish and worked great...they should still keep making them!

Problem is, they want to catch fisherman with new lures...not fish.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
