"CreekSpeak" - Show 'N Tell

Series: #5300 Husky Ding Bat 

Years Produced: 1938 – 1945      Length: 2 3/8”     Weight: 1.3 oz.

General Notes: A very scarce bait in any color, especially in prime condition. The scarcity is based on two factors: A limited production during the war years & less demand from  its intended market – the Pike or Muskie angler. Typically baits made for bass far outsell “Muskie size” examples. 
A big brother to the #5100 Dingbat (sometimes listed Ding Bat) & #5200 Midget Ding Bat. Has through-wire rigging, glass eyes, dyed horsehair tails matching the paint scheme.

Description of Pictured Lure:
#5300 in Pikie. This big boy is seldom seen above VG condition in ANY color. "Dingbat" is gold stenciled on its back. Finding the correct box can also be a difficult chore.
