Series: #3500 Husky Injured Minnow 

Years Produced: C. 1929 – 1961     Length: 4 7/8”     Weight: 1.6 oz.

General Notes: This giant surface bait is difficult to find in superior condition. The sheer mass of the large baits often cause them to swell and  shrink, resulting in age lines, even on unused baits. Evidently a limited production lure because not many appear in ANY condition. This bait made until 1961, so most were produced with glass eyes. The weight was reduced to  1 1/4 oz. In 1957. Not made in plastic. 

Description of Pictured Lure:
#3518 in Silver Flash – The spinners are the standard size but the three treble hooks are “muskie” size.  A top water bait that was fished in a manner to fool the fish into striking a dying minnow.
