* “These references were gleaned from “Western Auto Numbers in 1941”, a chart on page #299 of Dr. Harold Smith’s excellent book entitled “Collector’s Encyclopedia of Creek Chub Lures and Collectibles. Identifications and Values: Second Edition”.

** Baits or colors marked with a question mark are the “most likely candidates” based on experience and “field finds” of boxed S-S lures that are believed to be original to the box. Much of the details regarding Shur-Strike baits were derived from Rick Osterholt’s book, “Shur-Strike Minnows: The History, Models & Colors of Creek Chub’s Shur-Strike Lures”
