Lure Identification

Recommended Posts

nofishfisherman

A few years back my wife's grandfather gave me a bunch of older lures that he had sitting around. He figured I'd keep using them but I thought they were pretty cool looking so I ended up framing them and hanging them on the wall. I now find myself curious as to what the lure names are. Below is a picture of the collection and couple close ups. Anyone know the names of the lures? I obviously know some of them as I included a daredevil and a rapala but some of the others I don't know anything about.

This is maybe half of the collection. I framed the nicer ones but I still have a box of duplicates that I may try out one of these days.

I think I see some Heddons, the one on the left 2nd row down could be a rare one, not totally sure. I too, have a bunch and framed up that we enjoy.

I have a bunch of my Grandpa's lures sitting in a tackle box and would like to display them like this. How did you attach them to the back material?

Looks great BTW!!

The back is some sort of thin foam board covered in a fabric. I used small nails/pins to attach the lures. I put the nail through the eyelets on the lure and push them into the foam. You can sort of see it in the close up photos. It ended up working well and lets the lure hang pretty naturally and the nails aren't overly visible in the eyelets.

I think I picked up the frame/shadow box from Michaels. Its a couple inches deep so plety of room and the frame front opens like a door so you have easy access to the lures if you ever want to change them out. The 2 close up pictures were actually taken with the from open.

I'll have to check that out. I've was thinking some were Heddon's but it looks like there are a few similar styles so its tough to know exactly which version they are.

Creek Chub Bait Company Pikies, jointed and non. Heddon River Runts, Heddon Bass Orenos, Pflueger Palomine or Mustang...I ain't as good as I once was. Gotta blow the dust off my own collection and books. Used to know them instantly.

Glass or tack eyes on wood bodies have the most value, some of the others don't have more than sentimental value.

The smaller lipped plugs look to be heddon river runts due to the hook and lip hardware. Millsite made similar styled baits as did paw paw with the lippy joes, but had different hook and lip hardware. There is a jointed mirro lure towards the bottom with the square lip, the larger lure looks like a cisco kid pikie minnow and a jointed pikie minnow. The odd looking jointed one on the upper right looks to be a paw paw bait company lure. A couple heddon bass orenos and I believe the one with the odd shaped all wooden bait is a creek darter made by Creek chub bait company best as I can tell but it would have a creek chub logo or heddon. I haven't been able to figure out the larger wooden plug with the extended metal diving bill. Check the bodies of the baits for printing and the lips for logo's stamped into the metal and that should give you a direction to look. From the paint style I'd say its creek chub bait. Nice shadow box!

I have a display of my Grandpa's lures and it looks almost the same! Those creek chubs were popular I think.

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.

      Looks interesting.... any chance a video is on its way 🙂
