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'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
