Placing a value on Creek Chub fishing lure boxes

In fact, I still have the first tackle box I ever owned in the s. In the mids, I found my first tackle box of antique lures at an auction near Lake of the Ozarks. I was surprised to see that buyers were so interested in old fishing plugs, even the wooden Creek Chub Pikies and Lazy Ikes, like the ones I still had in some of my fishing tackle boxes. My obsession with old fishing tackle grew from that point on. Some of my favorite old fishing lures were made from through about I find them in tackle boxes that most likely belonged to anglers who pursued bass in Missouri or larger fish when they travelled to the northern U. Many companies made side-hook minnows. Most of these wooden baits had either three or five treble hooks, although at least two companies made slightly larger versions that boasted six treble hooks!

The present invention relates to fishing lures, and in particular, fishing lures which sink. Most particularly, the present invention relates to weighted fishing lures which have a predatory fish attracting motion when pulled through the water and orient themselves in a particular manner when allowed to sink. Fishing with natural live bait, such as minnows, has been practiced since ancient times. The effectiveness of a minnow on a hook in attracting and hooking predatory game fish, even in the presence of schools of wild minnows, is presumably due to the appearance of vulnerability associated with the bait minnow.

That is, to the predatory fish, the bait minnow appears as a food source requiring relatively lower energy output than a healthy wild minnow. In modern times, fishermen have increasingly turned to artificial lures since artificial lures are more convenient than natural live bait and avoid the potential for disease transmission into the fish population. Fishing lures which are weighted so as to cause them to sink through the water are well known. Three examples of representative sinking lures are as follows: First, a jig-type lure, which in its most basic form consists of a lead weight molded onto the shank of a hook adjacent the eye of the hook.

Jig-type lures often are characterized by a tendency to drop though water in an orientation such that the lead weight portion of the lure leads the lure downward. Second, a metal spoon-type lure which typically consists of a single piece of metal sheet stamped into a bowl shape and having a treble hook at one edge and an eyelet at an opposite edge. Spoon-type lures often include a slight asymmetric characteristic in the stamping which results in a helical motion when pulled through water.

Third, a full-bodied lure having an overall density such that it sinks through the water.

My invention relates to improvements in fish lures. The object of the invention is to provide a lure which is in the form of a live fish and which is provided with a mechanical movement operated in response to the movement of the lure through the water to cause some of the ns to oscillate, whereby the lure will not only travel along a horizontal plane but will dive at intervals simulating somewhat closely the action of a live fish.

The invention contemplates a lure in the form of a live bait having a rotatable tail and means operated by the tail for moving the fins or other similar parts of the lure to change the direction of travel of the lure when drawn through the water. The numeral I indicates generally a hollow body representing a fish or other suitable live bait, which body is for the purpose of manufacture, divided into upper and lower sections 2 and 3 respectively. The example shown is preferably moulded of plastic material and is suitably coloured to give the appearance of a live fish.

Each of the sections 2 and 3 is provided with an end wall 5 which jointly seal off the body at the rear and form a journal for a tail shaft 6.

The hook hangers and spinners used on these baits changed over the years and are therefore very helpful in dating individual lures.
