Series: #4500 Wiggle Wizard

Years Produced: 1934 – 1938     Length: 2 3/4”     Weight: .6 oz.

General Notes: A seldom offered bait especially in superior condition. This lure replaced the Baby Wigglefish in 1934. Instead of a metal tail the Wiggle Wizard replaced it with a treble hook, designed hopefully to catch more fish. CCBCO had this to say about the new jointed bait “You’ll be surprised at the results this little lure will give”. Produced in six colors.

Description of Pictured Lure:
#4501 in Perch. A small jointed bait that evidently never caught on because examples today are scarce in ANY color, especially in prime condition. This design was introduced & met its demise within a few years. Perhaps similar action baits such as the smaller Jointed Pikies contributed to the decision to drop this pattern.
