Presenting the new and Unique
Whopper Stopper Lizard Lure

For the first time in the history of artificial lures a precision plastic fraud has captured the remarkable life-like reality and writhing fluid action of a live bait. The eastern spring lizard of the Great Smokey Mountain region. For decades this little creature has been highly prized by anglers as a most effective live bait, it’s irresistible swimming action tantalizes the most stubborn bass into striking.

The Spring Lizard has been the doom of many prize bass, large and small-mouth as well as other species of game fish, fresh and salt water. The spring lizard is an interesting and shy little creature, although snake like in appearance he is harmless, living in and around the beautiful fern like moss and vegetation of cold clear mountain springs and branches he is considered by thousands of anglers as the most effective of all live bait. Recognizing the tremendous fish catching possibility of an artificial reproduction of the spring lizard, Jim Gasque, nationally known authority on fishing, author-sportsman and special representatives of Whopper Stopper baits, combined his creative talents with J. Fred Eder, United Press Outdoors consultant and originator of the famous Whopper Stopper “Back Running” lures to create precision plastic version of the spring lizard.

Jim flew eight live lizards to Texas for study and observation. Many models were carved and tested, after extensive reaserch perfect reality was accomplished, plastic craftsman produced precision molds for the little fraud and a new lure was born. Nature Herself molded the unique color patterns taken from the live lizard models with the expert guidance of Jim Gasque. Jim and Fred combined a total of 40 years of lure designing to perfect the lizard.

The deadly lizard lure is available in seven unique color phases and Two sizes for either Casting, Trolling or Spinning.
