Shakespeare Pop I Lure
The Shakespeare Pop I lure was a series model number 6574, and created by the Shakespeare Bait Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan. This painted eye, wooden lure, was Shakespeare’s answer to a segment of fisherman wanting to emulate one of natures greatest food supplies for sports fish, the frog. The antique lure was circa 1938, and was 3 5/8″ in length with 2 trailing treble hooks.
The Shakespeare Pop I fishing lure was said to have been a direct competitor to the Creek Chub Plunker lure. The 6574, is the skinniest of the 2 that were offered during that period of time. Shakespeare also offered a 6575 that was a more stocky and beefier version.
