Smithwick Wood Chug Fishing Lure
The Smithwick Wood Chug Fishing Lure was first introduced around 1965. This wooden antique fishing lure was made by the Smithwick Bait Company, of Shreveport Louisiana. The antique lure was given a series C-2200. The lure is in a black and white shore color, color code #24. The ure is roughly 3″ on length.
This Wood Chug has a scooped face like most top water popper type lures, however this scoop has a slight angle making one side higher than the other. Inset into the center of the dished out face is the single forward line tie. The lure has painted eyes on the under side of the lure. The fishing lure employs the use of two standard treble hooks to secure its catch. It uses a surface style hardware on the body of the treble and the rear loop to hold the aft most hook.
