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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
