Ok, here ya go. If ya want it, let me know. Not sure how old it is, but I have had it for several years, and I don't really remember when and where I got it from. LOL

The tiny torpedo.  Its farely new.  If you look on the side of the bait you will notice that it has what they call a "feather design" which means it is a newer bait.  I will still take it off of your hands.  Just name your price.


You can go to www.heddonlures.com and you will find that bait.  I like the way the old rusty hooks look on it.  LOL

IM me on Yahoo, and we can discuss things. ;D It's an old lure, cause the tackle box that I had it in was one that I used in 1993-1994. And I had the lure long before that. I am still trying to find one that my Dad had, but I have no clue what I did with it.

I have one of his old spooks, with the paint looking brand new, and another Torpedo, that is smaller than this one, in the same "frog" pattern. I would love to find them, but I don't know where they are! :-[

Thats not what I meant by not being old. If you go to that web site you will see that it isn't that old of a bait. You might have own that bait for 10 years but when it comes to Heddon lures that isn't that old. I still want it however.

I have a cottage in Sister lakes Michigan; aka Dowagiac mailing address. The Heddon factory is still standing and they give free tours of an area they made into a museum. Tours are only once to twice a month so I can get you more information if you want. The displays are pretty cool and they have sales there on occasion. I bought some old lure molds last year.

Here's some of my old-time favorite bass catchers, many old "woodies" worth quite a lot. I took em off the wall and put em in da boat. About $1,000 worth to collectors, none less than $12 on the current market. I put new trebles on when deciding to fish them. Until then I keep the originals intact. These were our top choice in the 60's and they still work as good as then, brand new sight to virtually all existing bass. Jim

I'll try again tonight

Seeing all those old lures brings back a lot of memories of fishing with my dad and granddad. They are like antique cars, they just don't make them as classy now days. Among my collection, I have an old wooden Lucky 13 I got from my granddad that is so chewed up it is unbelievable. But there is no way I would try to restore it because I watched him nail a lot of bass on that thing. Jim and bigtex, thats a nice collection you have. I hate to admitt, I'm old enough to have fished most of them!! :fishing01:
