Creek Chub Husky Injured Minnow Lure Prototype
This Creek Chub Husky Injured Minnow Lure is a series 3500. This wooden glass eyed Creek Chub lure made in Garrett Indiana was first introduced in 1929. The antique lure measures 5″ inches in length. This specific one is believed to have been a prototype of sorts and has some modifications from the normal ones found. You ‘ll notice the reinforcement of the rear of the lure where the line tie enters the back. This has almost the same type of reinforcement a certain South Bend Surf Oreno Models. The wire through rigging seems to be a bit beefier (is that a word) than most and you’ll notice the absence of the rimmed cups.
Another eye catcher is this Husky Injured Minnow only has 2 treble hooks to secure its prey after its caught, while most have 3. Even the props look different and have more of a rounded mickey mouse look than the normal. The Husky Injured Minnow was in and out of production from its release in 1929 to 1961.
