Pflueger Pal O Mine Lure

Pflueger Pal O Mine Lure

The Pflueger Pal O Mine Lure is one of those timeless classics that was first introduced in 1925. Made in Akron Ohio, this lure was a staple in the Pflueger Fishing Tackle Company lure line up for close to half a century. This straight uni-body Pal O Mine was given a model series number 5000. As with all lures that made it that long, there were many variations to it as the company and the industry evolved. This wooden lure measures 4 1/4 inches in length and you’ll note has pressed eyes. So while the Pal O Mine was introduced in 1925 this version shown was brought in to production around 1948. The antique lure came standard with three treble hooks and used a surface style hook hanger to secure them.

The Pal O Mine is a super lure to collect as it has variations in both body, hardware and colors. You could enjoy many many years trying to fill up a collection of them. The lure shown in the gallery below is one of my favorite Pflueger colors. The color is a color code 39, a Scramble finish of Red, Green, and Yellow a tie dye of sorts.

The forward most treble hook uses the surface type hardware to keep the hook in place, and the rear uses the traditional eye screw.

The color code should you be trying to match the lure with the correct box is color code 39, so, its box would be marked 5439.
