Series: #9400 Jointed Spinning Pikie 

Years Produced: 1952 – 1963 (in wood)     Length: 2 1/2”     Weight: .3 oz.

General Notes: A smaller version of the very successful Jointed Pikies made in many sizes. Has painted eyes. There isn’t any hook cups. Introduced at $1.25, housed in a new plastic slip-on top box which allowed the buyer a quick view of the bait – a great selling tool. The catalog  touts this bait as “a fast, deadly wiggler”. Plastic only from 1964-1978. A plastic Ultra Light version was even smaller than this bait!
