Moonlight Single Hook Pikaroon Lure
The Moonlight Single Hook Pikaroon Lure was first seen around 1923. The Moonlight Bait Company of Paw Paw Michigan gave this model a series number 2500. By far and away one of the cooler and my favorite Moonlight lures. This wooden antique fishing lure measures 4 1/4″ in length. This slender and sleek looking lure feature two forward facing glass eyes. At the front of the eyes in the center of the pointed nose is the single forward line tie. This lure was made for large wall eye lures or the great northern pike.
This antique lures most eye catching quality is it has a long single hook attached to the belly of the lure and at the tail. The lure is held to the body with a screw and on the aft end of the lure there is a modified hollowed out barrel swivel to allow some but not much movement laterally.
The lure was cataloged in six different color versions
2501 Red Head Gold Body
2503 Green Scale
2504 Red Body White Head
2507 Gold Scale
2508 Blue Scale
2509 Yellow Perch

A Sportsmans single hook lure, made especially for the Ike Walton’s. Great for Walleye Pike, Great Northern Pike and Pickerel. The No. 7 Hook fastens to the body by a loose sliding swivel that allows a perfect swinging movement darting, diving and wobbling in a manner which makes the big fellows want it.
