Creek Chub Midget Plunker Lure

Creek Chub Midget Plunker Lure

The Creek Chub Midget Plunker Lure was born in Garrett, Indiana. The Creek Chub Bait Company was looking to capitalize on its widely successful Plunker Lure line up. The midget plunker, made of wooden measuring 2 1/4″ would be the second to smallest in the line and the smallest wooden variant. This little brother would mimic in shape, style and popping top water style fishing as the regular Plunker. Creek Chub would assign to it a model series 5900. 

The lure would come in roughly 14 different standard palate of colors. Many examples of uncatalogued colors can be found as well. A neat side note is written that this midget Plunker can be found in the Creek Chub Bait Company Catalog for 4 years, 1950-54 although it was produced for more than 30.

The Plunker

No. 3200 Series

Here’s a splendid lure. When the bass seem to be “loggy” and inclined to strike, try one of these. We call it the “Plunker” on account of the peculiar sound it makes when in action – “Plunk” “Ker” “Plunk”. Its a great cure for the lazy bass and say, the pike seem to like it too. Its not a fancy bait at all no “hookum” on it to make it sell, on looks but try it on just one trip and you’ll swear by it. Toss it into a likely looking pocket in the reeds or pads and give it a series of very short jerks with a rod. Dont try and make it move around too much just twitch it enough to keep it bobbing, dancing, fussing and “kerplunking” in one place for a few seconds, then reel it in a few feet, and do it again.
