Moonlight Lady Bug Wiggler Lure
The Moonlight Lady Bug Wiggler Lure was first introduced in 1916. This wooden antique fishing lure was given the model series number 9, and measures 4″ in length. The lure looks a lot like a Pepper Roamer lure. This slanted head antique lure has a single forward line tie, has a set of glass eyes on the bottom of the head as if to look down into the water. The first version of the antique fishing lure had no eyes. The lures features rope feelers or legs into the side of the lure. The Lady Bug Wiggler has two standard treble hook attached to catch its prey. The lure was available in only 3 colors, the red and white shown in the gallery below.
