Okie spinnerbait from 1991

Recommended Posts

Hey guys~

I bought this spinnerbait back in 1991 in Stillwater, OK at the local tackle shop. Am wondering if any of you might know who made these, or if they are still available. That fully plastic arm is wonderful for ripping through heavy cover.

 

Thanks in advance!

I don't know who made them but I wonder if you could plasti-dip a current spinnerbait and get similar results?

I recall back in the day that Hildebrandt made a plastic framed spinnerbait, I bought a few one tie when I had disposable income burning a hole in my pocket.   I think I might have fished them once - just wasn't impressed and don't remember why.

 

**hours later edit . . .found the baits in a box of old spinner baits in my tackle shed.   The Hildebrandt frames look kinda similar but there is no metal eye to tie to and the frame is made of clear plastic.  Blade was attached to the swivel with a split ring, not a snap.   Smallish willow blade.

Thanks for the lead on possible manufacturer, I'll see if I can locate any of their older stuff. I know that many of the tackle manufacturers had their start in little home based shops in and around Oklahoma back in the day, and some just never made it out of the local market ; so at best I figure I'm swinging for the fences trying to figure out who made these, but had to give it a try.

Fishing in Bassachusetts is very different than in your neck of the woods. When I fished OK I had never seen water so muddy, and I'd never experienced so many submerged trees/stumps. For the most part our water is crystal clear to mildly stained. As for this crazy little spinner bait, it runs well up here and the bass seems to go for it. Maybe because not everyone is using others like it; it thumps pretty dang hard even with that small Colorado blade, and as I said in the OP that soft plastic arm comes through cover really well.

 

Thanks again for the lead.😊
