Paw Paw Platypus Lure Rainbow Trout

Paw Paw Platypus Lure Rainbow Trout

The Paw Paw Platypus Lure Rainbow Trout was first introduced in 1941. This strange looking plastic, raised painted eye lure, was the Paw Paw Bait Company model series #3500. The lure originally called a Wham Doodle, which was made of wood with whats referred to as an alligator eye. The lure features two sets of small treble hooks on each side of the lure adjoined with unique hardware, the same of which appears on the Flap Jack lure. The lure has always been popular with collectors and was available in many different colors to look for. I’ve never figured out what they were trying to mimic, possibly a small duckling.

Some of the colors that available and the corresponding color numbers are:

01 Perch Scale 
04 White with Red Head
06 Shad Scale
07 Pike Scale (Shown Below)
08 Frog
23 Dace
24 Rainbow Trout (Shown in Gallery)

Bug N Bass Antique Lure

Bug N Bass Antique Lure

The Bug N Bass Antique Lure dates to around 1963. The Bug N Bass antique lure a product of the Buckeye Bait Company of Miamisburg, Ohio, later in Council Grove, Kansas. The Bug N Bass was not the only lure made by the buckeye Bait COmpany. The lure itself is roughly 3 inches in length. This hardened plastic fishing lure is chasing a bug or a fly. So the bad pun for the evening is this bass or fly fishing. Again I apologize for my bad sense of humor. Like we have seen on previous lures using the fish chasing its dinner to catch a fish. The Bug N Bass has two treble hooks in which it will catch its prey. The front one uses a surface type hardware and the back uses the screw eye.

The lure has around 16 standard colors you can collect. This is also the larger of the two Bug N Bass lures. There are a few uncataloged colors floating around as well if your looking to make a collection of them. The antique fishing lure shown in the gallery below is a Rainbow Trout color, and is shown with its correct box and paperwork.
