Years Produced: 1938 – 1978 Length: 3” Weight: .4 oz.
General Notes: The #8000 designation was set aside for this bait far earlier than it should have been committed. In 1938 CCBCO was numbering their baits in the #5000 range when this bait was introduced. Evidently they expected big things from this lure to assign it an easy-to-remember number just as they had done earlier on the successful #2000 series Darter. Produced in wood with painted eyes & two treble hooks. Although offered until 1978, it wasn’t made in plastic. A winning bait made by CCBCO for over 40 years.
