Series:  #4600 Skipper

Years Produced: 1936 – 1951     Length: 3”     Weight: .5 oz.

General Notes: Offered from 1936-1945, not available from 1946-1949 then reintroduced in 1950-1951. Therefore, actually made for a total of twelve years. Mentioned in the Creek Chub Collector's Book in black with luminous white head but never mentioned in the old CCBCo catalogs in this variation. However, a standard #11 black body with white head is a catalog color. Oddly, the 1950 and 1951 CCBCo catalogs list #11 as black and red! This is probably a typo. Another rare one is the #13 Black. The Skipper has a weighted tail causing it to stand almost vertical on top of the water. A surface bait offered at $1.15 in 1951.

Description of Pictured Lure:
#4601 in Perch. A concave face to create a surface fuss when worked in short “twitches” by the rod. Has two treble hooks. Not a rare color but overall the Skipper was never made in great quantities as were the Pikies, Plunkers, etc.
