Paw Paw Bonehead Jointed Swamp Minnow
The Paw Paw Bonehead Jointed Swamp minnow lure is quite a mouthful. The Bonehead refers to Paw Paws molted brown spotted or striped finish. The antique lures were first produced in 1956 and lasted for roughly 8 years. The lures were always found with the tell tale rhinestone eyes, some that were clear and or sometimes ruby in color. I have photos of most all the antique lures offered in the Bonehead finish and will share over time. The Jointed Swap Minnow was 2 3/4″ inches in length and was a series #12-B. The smallish antique lure has a un-jointed brother as well in Paw Paws lure lineup. The lure shown is housed in the typical plain wood grained Paw Paw Box and I’m uncertain what era or outfit might have sold these for them.
