The old jitterbugs have much better action and noise than the new ones, so I still use old jitterbugs quite a bit.

I also throw a few old creek chubs (pikies, injured minnows), heddon river runts, and south bend bass o renos every now and then.
I don't use any nice ones as that can be kinda pricey. ;)

I used to collect Punkinseeds, but never have fished with one. I may have to give that a shot. I love those old lures






I have a Heddon Punkinseed that I throw sometimes, although I have yet to catch anything with it.

I think when they put that rattle in them it changed the action.
Not for the better.

Original Flatfish, still around but never see one in a tackle shop.
Agree with Catt, if it worked 50 years ago it will today.
I've been turned on to a Wahoo redfish gold spoon for bass, not saying it's better than the j-spoon.

Johnson spoon but in black chrome.  Hildebrandt Snagless Sally yellow with a goldblade. That is a killer but I cant find them anywhere.

Question or statement?
I catch bass all the time on saltwater lures and vice versa.  Predatory fish are pretty much the same, I don't think fish are as near fussy as many people seem to think.

BPS lists them on their website.

Some colors are out of stock.

There are no magic lures and the fish don't care how much you paid for your gear.

man I used to have this jointed topwater rebel in a perch color, now all I can find is silver/black and silver/blue, but that perch used to be my go to lure and would always come thru.

I am truly surprised ;) that no one has mentioned the often immitated but never duplicated, Johnny O' Neill's Weed Wing ;) has any one ever used one of these? My favorite color was either black, black chrome, or just green with a mr twister tripple tail or a 3 or 4 inch piece of a tripple tail worm from bass pro shop's, I don't know if they still make those either, but the last company to make the weed wing was harrison hoge and they made the frog's. My other favorite is my old devil's horse yellow with black spot's, a color they haven't made for year's! It's retired!! Junebugman

I've used most of the lures mentioned here but never saw or heard of the Weed Wing before.  I just googled it and see there are some being sold on Ebay. Interesting looking lure.  Looks like a spinner/spoon combo.
