Beno

Taking some guesses just for the fun of it. Upper Left looks like a very old Bayou Boogie. Upper Right I think it's called a Mud bug. Lower left Lazy Ike or Beno. Lower Right....I got nothing.

More guesses: UL = Heddon Chuggar(vintage) , UR = Mud bug, LL = Lazy Ike, LR = Lucky 13.

I still have some of those old wooden lazy ike's from my grandfather and they still work.

X2 for Meadowlark.
Don't call those lures OLD I still have a few that I bought after getting out of high school.
That was only ...hummm.....last century.
Those were made back when men were men and the bass had not developed a taste for that silly soft plastic stuff. AHhhh the good old days.

Hey careful now... I caught my first LMB @ 6 yr. old, on a Lazy Ike! Yellow with red spots... Killer lure!

Ha! This one has what looks like braid tied to it I thought that was odd. You can see the crack in the lure as well.

Of course, I MEANT lower right! I think Luckty 13 s were a little "fatter" than that one! An ole Lazy Ike is hard to mistake. Made myself look like the old fool that I am!! LOL That is part of the fun of getting old, you have achieved the ability to laugh at yourself!!

Amen! We used the "yellow with red spots" to catch walleye in Minnesota too. I think it was Lazy Ike's best color by far. Especially if you were fishing stained or cloudy water.

I've messing around with these Shadow Boxes, and my old lures trying to make something that looks descent. Last week I come accross these old maps and had a brain storm. I bought them all for $2.

Glad you like them old wooden Heddon's they are from the 40's and 50's

Braid??

Some of these plugs were fished before monofilament came along.

First; cotton, then linen, then nylon, then mono, then back to braid. I've used all of them.

If I put all of my freshwater plugs into a shadow box, I'd need a large map of Texas for a background. Saltwater; same thing!

Thanks for the pictures of the 'old' plugs. You guys have been looking into my tackle boxes; haven't you? :rolleyes: C2

I've got one old map(60's or 70's) that's about 2' x 4', has the whole Gulf coast from Florida to Brownsville. Thinking of maybe just framing it, but don't know where I'd put it?

It was probably nylon then!
