Creek Chub Baby Pikie Lure
The Creek Chub Baby Pikie Lure was first introduced to the fishing lure public in 1921. This lure a model 900 series was produced by the Creek Chub Bait Company of Garrett Indiana. This smaller version of the industry changing and dominating Pikie minnow was made of wood and measured 3 1/4″ in length and weighing 1/2oz. The Baby Pikie antique fishing lure would retain its wooden composition until 1963, there in it would be composed of plastic. The lure was primarily made with glass eyes but can be found in a no eyed version as well. The lure can be found with the Double Line Tie (Shown on the Rainbow Below) prior to the 1936 switch to the single line tie variation. The antique lure came standard with two treble hooks to secure the catch, the rear attached via screw eye and the center using a cup rig.
