    Default Show and tell.... the battle scarred

    Here is a lure that has stood the test of time. It’s a post WWII Heddon Plunker. I acquired it many years ago at a flea market and no joke have caught over 1000 Canadian smallmouth on it.

    I since have dubbed it “grandpa.” I actually lost “grandpa” twice. Both times as the result of a snapped cast. The first time it happened I was devestated. I hung my head in sorrow for a minute and then tied on another lure. While I was casting I asked God if there was any way I could get “grandpa” back. About a half hour later, hallelujah, there he was about ten feet from me. Second time it happened I prayed the same prayer but no dice. I found “grandpa” two days later washed up on shore.

    Now I figure God wants “grandpa to take a rest so he only appears once a year, catches a fish then back in the box.

    Thats one of mine. What do you all have?

    I have a BUNCH of these old Heddon lures that I inherited from a great uncle. Hula Poppers, River Runts, and others I can’t remember the name to. I am afraid to lose them, so they just live in Plano boxes. Every once in a while I get them out to look at them—nice memories of days gone by and grand adventures on the water with a wise old man.

    So here are a few I could easily lay my hands on. Hula Poppers on top (without their ‘skirts’!), a regular and a jointed Jitterbug in the middle, and River Runts on the bottom row. Kinda makes me want to fish them now!

    Each of these has caught over 200 fish.
    Hooks and split rings have been replaced a couple of times.
