Double Header

Double Header Lure

The Double Header lure was made by the Tropical Bait Company. It is believed that Tropical Bait was located somewhere in Indiana. The lure, made of wood and having painted eyes, measures about 3 1/2 inches in length.

The red head/white body color was the original 'unknown' before being identified by Bob Claycomb as he had seen one about a year ago in a plastic top box. The one Bob had for sale was in a color best described as 'green frog' and was priced at $45.

Interestingly, there is an identical lure pictured in Karl White's latest book on page 162 (A8), which is silver in color, also with painted eyes but of a different pattern. It too is identified as an 'unknown'.

Unknown??

Unknown lure

This lure begs to be identified due to its unique characteristics. It is a wood lure, having a globe-type prop on the front. The head is entirely serrated around the rear edge. The back part has two flattened edges, opposite each other, painted green. There is a cap on the tail and it has cup hardware.

Unknown Status: Unidentified
