Paw Paw Flap Jack Lure

The Paw Paw Flap Jack Lure was introduced in the 1950’s, made by the Paw Paw Bait Company of Paw Paw Michigan. This version of the Paw paw Bait Company lure arsenal was given a model 3600. This plastic fishing lure measures 3 1/2″ in length and weighs in at 3/4 oz.

Most commonly mistaken for a Helin Flat Fish, the early version of this Antique Lure uses a specific, easily identifiable hardware. The early 1950’s version has a hook hardware that uses a ball and socket type enclosure, in a way like your arm socket. The hardware was also used on the collector favorite, Paw Paw Platypus.
