The Creek Chub Wiggle Fish Lure was first introduced in 1925.

This wooden, glass eyed lure was a model 2400 and measures 3 1/2″ in length, and tops the weighs in at 3/4 oz. This antique lure can be found with a double line tie, dating to pre 1935-36 era or with a single line tie for post 36. This lure was meant to dive and had a step lip to help it get to the depth of its prey. Taking after it’s name, the Wiggle fish, the lure is a segmented lure with the tradition U pin connections securing the two halves. The lure was made to make a life like wiggling motion in the water complete with fluted, rear flasher fin, sometimes found in gold, bringing up the rear.

The Wiggle Fish

No. 2400 Series

The Aristocrat of all Wigglers. All Creek Chub nature lures are noted for their wonderful movements but in this new double jointed lure with its swaggering, fluted, nickle tail and patented mouth-piece, there is a fast, flexible, swimming movement not found in any other lure. As its name indicated, the New Wiggle Fish looks just like a fish, swims like a fish, floats, dives, wiggles its way along just below the surface – or deeper if pulled faster. This is the bait to use when trolling for the big one. A guaranteed getter of Bass, Pickerel, Pike, and Muskies. Length of body, 3 1/2″ inches. Weight 3/4 oz.
