Creek Chub Husky Dingbat Lure
The Creek Chub Husky Dingbat Lure was first produced in 1938 and only lasted 8 years and was out of production by 1946. Creek Chub of Garrett Indiana assigned it a model number 5300. This is the largest of the Creek Chub Dingbats and measures 2 1/2″ in length with just its wooden body. It in whats termed “The Hair Bait” family and when measuring the standard factory installed tufts of hair the lure reaches 4″ in length. This glass eyed antique fishing lure 1 1/8 oz. and is a pretty stout lure almost hockey puck size. The lure is made with a heavy duty wire through construction, as were many of the antique lures made to secure large game fish such as Northern Pike, and Musky. The lure has two larger treble hooks secure with the reinforced methods.
The Creek Chub Husky Dingbat Lure came standard in seven color palate finishes. The fine example is shown in its correct end labeled box marked 5301. I have seen both the long over sized box shown below, and the taller box house this lure.
