Hanson Sub Master Lure
The Hanson Sub Master Lure was patented in 1951, while being made as early as 1950. This lure was distributed by Hanson’s Custom Loading out of Bonner Springs, Kansas. This little known lure has a large clear plastic diving lip almost the same length of its body.
This lure is 3 1/4″ in length with lip and 1 3/4 without. The antique lure has a rubber skirt which hides the single trailing treble hook. The fishing lure has an already affixed leader to which to tie your line to. The lure has its name and patent pending stamped into the underside of the lure. The Sub Master lure was a one hit wonder for the company, and although the patent was granted no other lures were made by them. With it being a one hit wonder finding the complete package can take a bit for those who collect miscellaneous antique fishing lures.
The Box States” Truly a natural trolling Plug-It Floats or Goes Very Deep. And it will stray perfectly balanced at any depth. No Weights needed to be added.”
The antique lure reminds me of the alien that used to chase bugs bunny around and blow him away with a ray gun, Marvin the Martian.
