Heddon jitterbug/jitterstick?

Recommended Posts

Just bought a group of lures, and these came in it. I know they still make these so not sure of their age. Is there a way to find out? 

 

Bought them to fish,  but after looking at them wondering if I'd rather just keep them for collection? 

 

In input would be helpful. If they're worth anything? Hard to come by? Or just rip some lips! 

 

Thanks!

They all have the older style hook holders that have screws holding to base of the lure instead of a 0 ring.

The new production Spooks still use the same setup to hold the hook.  As for the Arbogast stuff, the Jitterbugs and Buzz Plug are still made, but not the Jitterstick.  I had a Jitterstick long ago and it worked great for spring pike and summer bass.  I don't believe those are still made as I haven't seen on on the shelves in probably 30 years.

None of the spooks I've bought in there past few years have had this style.

I can't speak to the others, but I know my local Wally's still has Jitterbugs on the shelf.  Fish it, if you lose/damage it it's an easy replace.

The best jitterbugs were made in Akron Ohio. Look under the lip for this info. Not worth a lot, but good to fish with

Never heard of a Jitterstick. Is that a prop on the tail? Doesn't seem like that would turn very well while jittering.

Keep the jitterstick and fish with the rest of them.

If the baits are plastic, there really is no collectible value.
