Shakespeare Floating Bait Lure Ad
This Shakespeare Floating Bait Lure Ad comes to us from what I believe is a 1922 Shakespeare Lure Catalog. I say what I believe is, as it says Catalog #20 in it, and knowing Shakespeare printed its first catalog in 1902 Im just making the assumption. However, the lures in it date it to 1917. Either way we get to see a lure not highlighted, found or shared often, the Shakespeare Floating Bait. The Floating Bait was fashioned in the shape and design of the Heddon 900 series lure.
Shakespeare “Favorite” Floating Bait
This is absolutely a surface floating bait with a hook arrangement that is right. The belly hook is held in position by a small pin, and the tail hook gets the strikes from behind. The shape of the body makes the bait ride properly in the water.
