"CreekSpeak" - Show 'N Tell

Series: #5500 Jointed Snook Pikie 

Years Produced: 1938 – 1978     Length: 5 1/4”     Weight: 1.4 oz.

General Notes: This bait had glass eyes through 1960, then tack eyes. Production was then abandoned from 1965-1968 but a clamor from anglers forced the company into a resurrection of this lure although in a more limited color selection. This is a larger version of the #2600 series. It has through-wire construction, large hooks & an improved lip. A CCBCO catalog denotes it’s specifically made for “Pike, Muskies, Lake Trout...and salt water fish”. No plastic baits in this size.

Description of Pictured Lure:
#5507 in Mullet. Two top screws hold reinforced lip in place. “Creek Chub Pikie” gold imprinted on top. This color is available in many hues from silver to this “Mediterranean” blue. Sometimes this is a result of fading, but mint lures are found in all hues. Therefore I believe many were produced in these variances of Mullet color.
