Vintage baits

Recommended Posts

As the title states, how many folks here collect or simply like older baits? I simply love fishing and fishing baits, old or new and through the years I have bought baits that I've held onto. I started a dedicated Rebel bait thread so I won't post those here. :) So In the spirit of this thread post some baits that to you are old, cool, something you'll never sell, or are great fishers!

Nice collection. I have a couple old lures and plan on adding some more  to my collection as time passes.

Cool collection, looking at those is like traveling back in time.  I remember fishing with those Bagleys like the one in the top row, 3rd to the left or the Rapala on the far left of the 2nd row.

The Silver one with the googly eyes, far right, 4th one down.  Is that made by Rebel or Rabble Rouser?  I recall using a lure with a lip & concave face decades ago, but I can't recall who made it.

It's a Doug Parker Rabble Rouser.

Exactly right Catt! Correct me If I'm wrong but It's my understanding that Yum Yum worms were the soft plastics division of Doug Parker and  Rabble Rouser bait company. When they sold to Pradco they simply dropped one of the yum's and that's how Yum bait company started. By the way,I have a few of the original Yum Yum worms in a plastic bag somewhere in the tackle room. :)

I have most of those lures on the tackle box . Even the ugly Rabblel Rouser . A lot of my favorite baits are no longer made and I lookk for them at Flea Markets and such . My most sought after lure is the Rogers shallow diving 1/4 ounce Big Jim . This lure hunts like mad and has caught more bass for me than any other shallow diver . Heres my best picture of it . LOL

The old Charlie Campbell spinnerbaits were my best big fish catchers until everybody started making big spinnerbaits . I won  my first tournament with one .

Some from my grandfathers tackle box. They've been in my possession for maybe 30 years and haven't seen water in that time.

The original Yum Yum worms were super soft!

I think ya right on the progression to Yum but the formula used is totally different.

I started fishing Crème then went to Yum Yum because they were both extremely popular around southeast Texas. Crème was located in Tyler Texas & thought Yum Yum was some where in the vicinity.

Slone, those are awesome, thanks for sharing!

@Catt Here's a picture of the "Yum Yum" worms I have.  I think the Yum Yum worms and Rabble Rouser baits were based in Ft. Smith Arkansas. :)
