Some you here know that I like using old school lures. To me it is just a heck of a lot of fun to use the same things that was used 50-60 even 70 years ago. Now I am not saying that I am out there tossing 70 year old lures for bass. That could be insane, but I do use some that were produced in the late 50's and early 60's

But for todays photo, I am using a Hawaiian Wiggler, a name dates back to the 1930's. They are one of, if not first "spinnerbait" type lure produced. The one I am using was produced in the late 50's. Still in great shape only the skirt has been replaced. Anyway here is one of the bass I caught the other day with a great lure from a bygone era.

I remember buying those at Central Hardware in St Louis in 19long time ago along with my favorite all time night topwater bait the black Jitterbug.

That particular HW has a trailer hook on it. I was fishing with Corndawg last weekend at an MDC CA. This fish came from a different pond from the one he caught his 7lb'er. I had 5-6 on before I finally got this one in. I don't know what the deal was but, I just couldn't get one to the bank. I had one pretty nice one on too. It would probably gone 3lbs or so anyway.

I have never had any trouble bringing in a fish before on any type of spinnerbait. But this day was not the case and I really can't put my finger on what it was. Anyone else ever experience this???

Wonder if the 80 year old hook could have anything to do with it? have-a-nice-day.png

I knew somebody was gonna hit on that. :yaeh-am-not-durnk:

No, I actually checked that while I was out there. Both hooks had very sharp points. Although it is not the quality steel hooks used today.

I like the way the lure's shadow fits on your shirt!

Great catch on the old bait!
