Paw Paw Old Wounded Minnow Lure

Paw Paw Old Wounded Minnow Lure

The Paw Paw Old Wounded Minnow Lure was the Paw Paw Bait Company’s answer to the industry craving for injured minnows. Imitation being the nearest and dearest sense of flattery, or just pure marketing trying to get a piece of what was a booming business for both Heddon and Creek Chub. Paw Paw entered the market earlier under a different name that’s written to have cause some issues with Creek Chub and its patent. This version of the Injured Minnow was the traditional Paw Paw Tack eyes and measures 3 1/2″ in length. The lure weighed in at a whopping 3/4 oz.

The Old Wounded Minnow antique fishing lure was given a model series 2500 in this form and dates to the late 30’s early 1940’s. The lure a standard 3 trebles, but they’ve offered a 2 Hook in this larger body size as well. The traditional painted cup rigging for the side hooks and the single screw eye for the rear. The wounded minnow like most of the injured industry wide series, and swam on its side to replicate an injured fish. The lure can also be found with Moonlight props but more often than not you will find them with the cheaper, more thin Paw Paw floppy props.

The lure can be found in a host of colors, making it fun to collect and sometimes easy on the wallet, depending on color, condition and if it has the original box. The example shown below comes in a Blue Version of the “I go For Lucky Lures” box and is correctly marked on its side. This color is a beautiful Silver Scale, Red Head with Stripes a Code 21.

Heddon 00 Lure 5 Hook Underwater Minnow

Heddon 00 Lure

The Heddon 00 Lure is a 5 sided or flat sided underwater minnow fishing lure. The Dowagiac 00 is a wooden, glass eye 5 hook lure which first came in around 1915, making it one of the many classic Heddon antique lures that came out of the teen years and is over a century old. The wooden antique lure measure in at 3 3/4 inches, roughly the same size as the Heddon 150. I’ve seen a few variations of size of this and the 0, as well as some being a bit more refined or slim in stature. The lure was offered in a few different colors, and is a fun one to find in a uncatalogued color. Most of the time these lures are found in this color as well as the white or yellow strawberry spot.

The antique lure shown is lure photo gallery below is in the L Rig hook hardware . While shown below in L Rig, it did however come in cup rig, as well as toilet seat and up turned toilet seat hook hardware variations. The antique Heddon lure used belly weights to sink it below the surface. The Heddon 00 below has marked or scripted front and rear propellers. The Heddon 00 lure did eventually disappear from the catalog and never made it through the 30’s like its round body underwater minnow kin, the Heddon 150 minnow lure.

In one of my early 1920’s catalogs it talks about the 00 minnow: The bait has a flat surface and sharp body line effect and has proven a most successful lure and game fish getter. The hooks are mounted on a distending sharp line running the entire length of the body on either side. Equipped with five string treble hooks and two spinners. Weight 16 pwts Length of Body 3 1/2″. Supplied in the following Colors:

No. 00 – White Body, red and green decorations
No. 001 – Yellow Body, ref and green and black decorations
No. 002 – Red Body with Black Decorations
Price Each .85 cents

Hoptacong Perch Minnow Antique Lure

Hoptacong Perch Minnow Antique Lure

The Hoptacong Perch Minnow Antique Lure date to around 1905. The lure distributed and made by the William Mills and Sons Company of New York, New York. While advertised to be a combined 6 inches in length, the lure itself was 3 inches in length. Mounted to the shaft were a unique set of horizontal front and rear propellers. The antique Hoptacong minnow featured tiny glass eyes and a trace leader behind the front prop that held two single shank hooks. The lure also held a single hook behind the rear horizontal prop. The 6 inch lure shaft held clear glass beads in front of and behind each prop, and was made of a wire though construction.

The antique fishing lure has always had an allure of itself on me, and I’ve always been fascinated by it. It employs an almost seductive 19th Century Phantom and English made characteristics, while using the underwater minnow characteristics we see in the minnows of the pre-teens. Offering both a Floating and a Sinking model to accommodate both types of fishing.

Heddon SOS 160 Lure Strawberry Spot

Heddon SOS 160 Lure Strawberry Spot

The Heddon SOS 160 Lure was first introduced in 1928. This antique lure made by the Heddon Lure Company out of Dowagiac Michigan was one of the mid sized SOS or Swims on Sides lure made by the company. This wooden, glass eyed lure was made to mimic a wounded prey fish. The antique fishing lure was a concave type slab that laid on its side in the water. As we discussed before imitation is the dearest form of flattery, this lure was made due to the bounding success the Creek Chub lure Company of Garrett Indiana was having with its own cripple or wounded minnow lure. We would see all the larger or Big 4 produce their own version of.

The 160 SOS was 4 1/2″ inches in length and came with two treble hooks to secure its catch. The antique fishing lure would be in Heddon’s Catalog line up for many decades and would take one changes that all in the industry would go through. The lure would have glass eyes in its initial stage and then move to painted. The 160 SOS was available in all the standard Heddon colors for each period or era. There are also uncatalogued versions such as this strawberry spot version, Heddon’s color code 169S for this example. The antique lure can be found housed in the Era centric boxes, from the Up and Downward Leaping Bass Boxes t the HR Brush box as shown in the gallery to the later Banner and so on.

Shur Strike Punkinseed Lure

Shur Strike Punkinseed Lure

The Shur Strike Punkinseed Lure was also called the Petite Spinner model PS. This antique fishing lure was first introduced in 1938. Although made by Creek Chub of Garrett Indiana and marketed under the Shur Strike name this was made of good quality. This wooden lure, made with glass eyes measured 2″ in length. The lure featured both a front and rear unmarked propellers consistent with the Shur Strike Line up. The Petite Spinner having two treble hooks, the forward of which used cup style hook hardware and the rear attached to the rear screw eye.

The lure shown below in the gallery is a color code 06, and is defined as a Brown Back Scaled finish in 1933, or Shiner Scale in 1937. This paint finish was even called Dark Scale in 1936. Regardless of indecisive name one thing is clear. The Petite Spinner or Punkinseed is a quality made small underwater minnow made to fish smaller sized fresh water game fish such as black bass.

Shakespeare 43 Underwater Minnow Lure

Shakespeare 43 Underwater Minnow Lure

The Shakespeare 43 Underwater Minnow Lure is one of my favorite Shakespeare antique lures. This lure is very similar to the Heddon 175 Heavy Casting Minnow lure. The lure is a 3T or 3 Hook underwater minnow made of wood with glass eyes to props both fore and aft. This lure has a single centered belly weight to get down deeper than a surface minnow lure.

The Lure dates way back to 1909 and like the 175, is just like the Shakespeare 44, only with 3 hooks. The 43 however being harder to find if comparing the two manufacturers Heddon and Shakespeare. The lure shown below in the Gallery is a beauty, it’s in the Shakespeare Rainbow color finish, B notched props, flat plate hook hardware. The antique lure adorn with 3 giant sweeping hand painted gill marks. This antique lure is certainly worthy of any antique fishing lure collection.

Nifty Minne Minnow Tube

Nifty Minne Lure Minnow Tube

The Nifty Minne lure, Circa 1913 falls into the minnow tube lure category. I’ve always spelled the name of this antique lure wrong for years Ill admit it. Minnow lure constraint devices vary from tubes to cages to hooks and pins to hold in place the pray to provide the prey fish in theory the utmost realistic view of a bait fish lure, itself. They were made of materials ranging from leather, to wire to plastic and to glass. Each medium having their own setback or weak point. Take for instance the Detroit Minnow Tube lure, a favorite among antique lure collectors. This Detroit minnow tube lure was made of glass, great for viewing, horrible in practice, especially on the rocks or even in a tackle box, glass is never a good thing.

Joseph Ness of Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1913 created what he thought would be an excellent contribution and improvement for a minnow tube, and used a celluloid center.  The lure had 5 trailing treble hooks akin to most underwater casting minnow lures and marked front props. The lure came in whats called a picture box, showing a rendering of the antique lure. The lure itself never really took off as far as bass or musky fisherman were concerned, I’m guessing due to the unstable celluloid after it had faced hot and cold environments would crack and break as well. In saying that this lure was never popular with fisherman, it is a very popular lure with antique fishing lure collectors.

A very rare seldom seen paper insert states “Caution! Be Sure to see that tail cap is closed reasonably tight after placing Live Minnow. There is no Danger in the tail cap coming loose if this suggestion is complied with as the rear spinner revolves with connecting thread. Note Hooks are interchangeable by unfastening nuts in the upper end of the bait thus permitting rods to slip out and replacing any hook desired. For any further information or details don’t hesitate to communicate with the undersigned and they will be cheerfully furnished. Jos M Ness Co.”

South Bend Panetlla Minnow

South Bend Panetlla Minnow

The South Bend Panetlla Minnow was first introduced in 1912. For three decades this lure a model series 913 was present in the South Bend Bait Company lure catalogs of South Bend, Indiana. I don’t think this lure is given the credit it deserves for its longevity and place along side some of the other big 5 companies underwater minnow series.

The version shown below, a model series 913, is a wooden antique lure measuring 4 1/4 inches in length. The lure would have glass eyes until its transition to tack eye later on in it’s production life cycle. The earliest version of the Panetella having no tail cap at the rear of the lure. After a few years of production as the version presented in the gallery below has the tail cap. The tail cap was used to help reinforce the wood and keep it from splitting.

The underwater minnow was first produced with only three hooks, two on the sides and one at the tail. In 1914, the option to order a five hook minnow version was made available. The antique lure had both a front and rear spinner to help maintain its course upon retrieval.

As far as coloring for the Panetella the lure was made in quite an assortment over time. Certain colors were added to the palette while others removed after a very short period in time. The lure shown below is one of those colors that is considered very hard to find on a Panatella. Color Code G for Gold Body with Red Head was only mad for 3 years between 1919 and 1922, and is said to be rare in the South Bend book written by Terry Wong.

The 1916 South Bend Lure Catalog States: “An underwater minnow of slender shape, such as our Panetella, has proven to be a mighty effective lure, particularly when the gamey ones would not rise or be attracted by the heavier minnow bodies. The Panetella can be credited with saving numerous trips from “fishermans luck.” Therefore, it is, all in all, a very valuable piece of tackle.”

The Standard Colors for the South Bend Panetella Lure are as follows.

F      Frog
G       Gold with Red Head * Shown in the Gallery
GCB       Green Crackleback
R      Red, with a Black Nose
Rain      Rainbow
RB       Rainbow with Blue Back
RH        Red Head White Body

SR     Red Body Dark Shaded Back
SW      White Body Dark Shaded Back

Shakespeare Nu Crip Minnow

The Shakespeare Nu Crip Minnow lure was first introduced around 1934. The antique fishing lure made by the Shakespeare Bait Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan was given a model series number 6510.

The 1936 Shakespeare Bait Company Catalog States: 

This new crippled minnow surface bait is designed to ride on the surface with approximately one half of the front and rear spinners above the surface of the water. When retrieved by ordinary reeling the bait produces a very attractive wake in the water and when used with short sharp jerks, produces a splashing, sputtering commotion on the surface, which makes the bait ideal for night fishing, surface fishing over a weed beds and inshore fishing. The Nu Crip is unsurpassed for taking black bass.

Bonafide Minnow Antique Lure

Bonafide Minnow Antique Lure

The Bonafide Minnow Antique Lure is timeless classic. The Bonafide lure made by its namesake the Bonafide Manufacturing Company was located out of Plymouth, Michigan. The patent for this metal minnow lure was given on January 15th, of 1907. The patent was divided equally between both Mr. Hiram Passage and Mr. George VanDecar. While many of the early manufactures of fishing tackle utilized wood in their piscatorial creations, this antique fishing lure was a aluminum metal minnow. No need to worry about a bass, or rock or tackle box destroying the paint job on your brand new lure with this creation.

The Bonafide lure was comprised of two concave and convex pieces or halves of aluminum metal fastened together. The artificial bait composed of these two sections created a hollow body or chamber. This allows the user to adjust its buoyancy by filling or emptying the chamber.  The chamber also contained a round spherical weight to help in the matters. The halves were cast in detail both showing the scales, gills and even the eyes of the fish. The eye and gills would have painted added to them however with any amount of use the paint would soon come loose. This 5 treble hook model measures 3 3/4″ in length the rear treble would be feathered. The 3T or 3 treble version in the gallery was roughly 3″ with the number of hooks, and length, being the only differential. The lure features both a front and rear propeller to keep it moving in a straight line upon retrieval. This antique lure is dual purpose, having a hole in its dorsal fin to be used as a fish decoy in ice fishing.

The Bonafide Lure or Bonafide Minnow was shown below in the gallery were the only lures made by this early ought’s lure maker. Either is considered both a prized and a enjoyable addition to any fishing lure collection.

Detroit Minnow Tube Antique Lure

Detroit Minnow Tube Antique Lure

The Detroit Minnow Tube Antique Lure is a classic staple to most advanced lure collections. Circa 1914 this antique fishing lure used the premises to save from having to replace minnows all day long. I’ve never quite understood the thinking with a glass fishing lure. As even the earliest of tackle boxes this is not something you would want rolling around in. One rock, one snag and smash, not only have you lost your lure you’ve created a hazard and pollution in the water.

There are two versions of the Detroit Minnow Tube you can find. The one shown below in the photo gallery and one that has a screw in cap. The glass body of this antique fishing lure measures 3 1/4″ in length. This version has the bail end cap or clip top. The top having two holes so that fresh water could keep the minnow alive. The antique fishing lure having 4 treble hooks two on each side.

Rev O Noc Underwater Minnow Lure

Rev O Noc Underwater Minnow Lure

The Rev O Noc Underwater Minnow Lure dates to the mid and early teens. Like the Shakespeare lure shown in side the “New Winner” wood box, this is a South Bend 3 Hook underwater minnow lure of dual purpose.

The Rev-O-Noc name was used as a trade name by the Hibbard Spencer and Bartlett Company. Taking the name and rearranging the letters we come up with Conover. Charles Conover was a Vice President of the HSBC company. This name did not just apply to fishing lures, but to reels, guns, knives and much much more under the HSBC company. Inside we see a beautiful 3 Hook single belly weight underwater minnow painted in green crackle back. This glass eyes beauty is in truth a series 903 made by the South Bend Bait Company of Indiana. The example is sold with a wood slide top box with paper labels affixed on the end caps.
