  1. Foam lined Pelican Box
  2. My guess is that they were stored in a closed plastic box and that the plastic reacted somehow with one or more of the lures. I have had Mirrolures turn completely white and take on quite a petroleum type of odor when stored in a closed box. I always suspected the white film and odor was the result of a reaction between the plastic box and the plastic lures, never any deformities though. I would guess the affected lures all had something in common such as plastic composition or type of glue that was used to glue the two halves together assuming they were not sonic welded. Have any new lures been added to the box since the last time they were looked?
  3. The originals were called "Bullheads"
  4. They were made by a wholesale lure manufacturer and sold under several different "brands" which had different features (eyes, scent chamber) - Mambo Minnow seems to be the most widely known (at least in the Northeast)
  5. Penn spinfisher bailess

    I can not think of a single advantage using a bail but can think of many disadvantages.
  6. Nice, I never saw any. I got mine unwired directly from Rob but pretty sure they had a space for a swivel. Maybe he made them both ways?
  7. I think Yankee had a belly hook
  8. Couldn't agree more. My dive watch doesn't show an IP rating. Marked water resistant NOT waterproof to 200 meters.
  9. I had them boring perfect 3/8" holes in pressure treated lumber. They bored every hole on the South side of each vertical piece that was holding up a roof overhang. I sprayed bee killer spray thru a length of aquarium tubing and watched them fall out one after the other. Siliconed holes afterwards. The following year they bored every hole right next to the previous years plugged up hole. The holes were approximately 8" deep when I stuffed in the tubing. The same the next year too. Good luck.
  10. 6" Reef Hawg Jerk Bait
  11. Default History of Stan Gibbs REQUIEM FOR A SURFMAN By FRANK PINTAURO Photography By Ed Poore PUBLISHED IN THE MAY/JUNE 2004 EDITION OF HUNTING & FISHING COLLECTIBLES MAGAZINE
  12. I think the top is a Masterlure Eel (with vertically oriented nose wire) and the bottom is a Lupo Danny Surface Swimmer
  13. The Jointed Jr's were originally a special order for me, the jigs he made to compete with Tiger Tails which were wildly popular in the NY Bight for Weakfish in the early 80's
  14. I think the top plug was an old run not a copy. The lip is in crooked, the nose wire loop is asymmetrical and twisted, the exposed back lip corners double the chance of a sliced line and I would bet the cause of it all is a loose thru-wire, if the wire is tight then there is a lack of attention to detail which is not Bobby's way. I think both front wire loops in the top picture look identical, just flipped in opposing orientations. The different hardware means little as likely in the earlier years hardware was purchased retail in smaller amounts from multiple locations before a need for larger quantities was established. The Cowboy was not one of his first models but was his first original design from what I recall.
  15. They have not been made in decades, it was a surface bait.
