General Notes: CCBCO made many sizes of the Pikie design. They were the bedrock of the company. #700 series Pikie & #2600 series Jointed Pikie were the best sellers.  A study in itself, this lure encompassed all the transitional changes expected on a bait that was made for almost 60 years. Produced in 19 catalog colors during the “glass eye” era plus an untold number of special order colors. Also made with an oversized Deep Diver lip beginning in 1950. A salt water version was introduced in the 1950’s. It has two treble hooks (instead of three).  #700 series first offered tack eyes in 1961. Plastic was an option from 1961-1978.

Description of Pictured Lure: #710 in Blue Head & White. A catalog color only in this series. Produced from c.1920-1949.  Scarcer than the #11 Black Head & White also made in the #700 series.
