Heddon Plunking Basser Lure
The Heddon Plunking Basser Lure is a smaller lure than its bigger brother the Heddon Basser antique lure. The Plunking Basser is a wooden lure measuring 3″ inches in length. The lure was given a model series number 8400 by Heddon of Dowagiac Michigan. This lure features 2 treble hooks instead of the standard 3 on the Heddon Basser 8500 series. The 8400 Plunking Basser is rather scarce in numbers and can be fun but very challenging to assemble a color collection.
