South Bend Sun Spot Spoon Lure
The South Bend Sun Spot Spoon Lure was first introduced in 1941. The Sun Spot Spoon however was not a South Bend origional lure. However when brought into the lure fold it was assigned model number 525. The South Bend Sun Spot was named in part due to its abilities when fished. The lure a chrome frame had an interior plastic slid that when fished would allow the suns rays penetrate through the plastic casting light below to increase its fish attraction.
Whatever the idea it didnt last long and was discontiuned in 1942. The Sun Spot was available in a half dozen different finishes. The lure had a single deer hair treble to secure its catch. The lure came in a antique lure box made or printed on the front for the Sun Spot as shown in the gallery.
