Early 1990's - Lure ID

Recommended Posts

In the early 1990's my Dad caught a 15.02 Largemouth on a lure I'd like to know the name/maker,etc.- It was a big Lizard that was attached via the offset hook to a very small buzzbait blade. Any ideas would help me track it down again. The giant Bass was caught from a Shelby County TX watershed lake of only 25 acres. We caught a lot of BIG bass out of that little Honey Hole on this lure as well as several over 10lbs. from nearby Pinkston Reservoir as well. What was that lure called? Thanks for any information.

I dont remember that lure but there is a lure called the Buzz Saw . Its an in-line buzzbait with an off-set hook that  a lizard could be attached .

Was the bass entered into the ShareLunker program?

 

They may have lure caught on listed!

No, Dad's 15+ was not entered-Unfortunately. I had caught a 14+ lber. GIANT from Pinkston Reservoir (Blk/BLU Stanely JIg w/a Blue "Red HAWG" Pork rind split-tail lizard as a trailer and slathered the whole rig w/some softshell crayfish scent I think was made by Mr.Whizkers (?)-Although I made every attempt to keep her alive as this particular year Honey Hole Magazine was offering a huge reward (50K?) for the largest Bass caught by a subscriber to this popular magazine. Alas,she "expired"-the Taxidermist later told me the Bass's heart had "popped"-most likely during the battle w/her and never stood a chance of survival.:( Dad calls me up one night a few years later and says "Well, I got you beat!" (I instantly knew what he had "beat)". So, I asked "how BIG was she?" Dad says ,"15.02 on certified scales!" (at a local butcher's shop). It was one of the proudest days of my life to hear Dad describing his catch. Dad called the lure's co. mfg., and they wound up sending Dad a whole box/kit with several lures and 5-6 bags of lizards, and even put his pic w/the huge Bass on their brochure. I'm still on the quest for that Buzzing Lizard's name, etc. The lizards were 10" and the company made them extra beefy w/a wide tail (w/holes in the tail to create even more action-bubbling,vibration etc).- I hope I can find that lure's name! But, the company, mfg. may have been closed or sold out (?)Thanks for the response, and any help would be appreciated.
