Do you love big bluegill?
Found these old lures in an old metal tackle box at a garage sale. Bought the tackle box for $5 bucks. Are these old wooden baits worth much? I want to try them out at our local lake this spring.

David;; I have had a few lazy Ikes in the past; even rigged one or two with stinger hooks like that one;; only reason I made my comment
the one in the upper right;; looks like a old ; lazy Ike;; looks like someone may have put stinger hooks on it
"Shannon Twin spin" huh Jeff .Neat .I wonder if it was made for Pike specifically .Jim Cosgrove , I think you're right . Maybe a Heddon 'Dowagiac' not a Dalton Special
Thanks guys! I believe the red lure is an old "Shannon Twin Spin".
Cool! Nice batch of old baits at a great price congrats!
glass eyes would be 1930s i believe.the double prop i believe is a heddon.should be some writing on the props
Most are quite common, or once were, anyway.
The Flatfish and SuperDuper are still made today.The big mouth lures are South Bend Bass-o-Reno's, or copies.
The prop bait and articulated diver are unknown to me.
Those with eyes appear to have glass bead eyes. That went out of fashion with plastic molding, which hints at the age.
The wire spinner was a pretty common item, back then, although there were a million different makers. If it has a name it could be a surprise
The double armed spinner is pretty cool, and along with the articulated diver, those two are the most unique.All in all, this lot looks pretty common. I doubt any of it will fund your retirement, but you never can be sure without research.All that aside what a great find for a little money!
