Creek Chub Jointed Snook Pikie Lure
The Creek Chub Jointed Snook Pikie Lure was first introduced in 1938. While its inventory continued to be sold and was in the Creek Chub Bait Company lure catalogs until 1978, it was produced after 1965. This large jointed or segmented lure is brother to the traditional and straight Snook Pikie, a model 5400. While it took 8 years past the 5400 to make it to production, the Model Number 5500 was assigned to this antique fishing lure which measures just under 5″ at 4 7/8″ and weighed 1 1/8 oz.
This mid sized Creek Chub lure was made out of wood with heavy duty through wire construction and a improved diving lip. This was done to no doubt add strength to its mid size so that just in case you met up with a beast from the deep you would be prepared. This glass eyed dandy came standard with three larger hooks to secure its game fish once caught.
Over its life span the Jointed Snook would be produced in a standard finish in a pallet of 14 colors. The Rainbow Fire Example shown below is a collector Favorite, and the Silver Shiner is Uncatalogued in a Box marked Special. The antique fishing lure in the gallery below is shown housed in its correct over sized, end stamped box adding value to the package.
