What lure is this?

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what vintage lure this is? It is made out of plastic and looks like it probably from the 1970's. There is nothing printed on the lure. Also, is it worth anything? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Mass production kills lure value. You won't find too many plastic bodied lures, which became popular around the 1950's and 1960's, that are of great value.

If you want to get started in collecting, look for wooden lures, class or tack eyes, certain makes and models, buy a book, go to an antique store that has a good collection, or just start by reading as much as you can on the subject.

Not sure what the lure is. Heddon stamps just about everything they make. A good lure antiquer could probably inspect the hardware-the hook hinges, eyelet, and propeller and tell you. Try finding someone on the internet in the NFLCC. Good luck.

I thought it kind of looked like a Heddon also. However, I looked at a catalog of some of their older models and could not find this one. There is nothing printed on this lure either. I think most Heddon's have something stamped on them. This one may remain a mystery.....................

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
