Hot old canal plug.

Rate this topic

This was a hot plug back in the early 70's in the canal. Don't recall who made it, but it was a scaled down, knock-off reverse atom. It was death on smaller fish, or when small squid were around.

The obvious drawback was the screw eyes of course. We used to drill then, to allow water in to cast further. Again, found in my Mom's garage. Never thought I'd see another again.

The marker is only for size reference.

I have some stubby needles made by Ron at Lordship Lures. These were specials. What color wood lures would be the best comparison to your old "hot" canal lure? How much does yours weigh?

Off the top of my head, I'd say the plug weighs 1.5oz. That's why we drilled them, to make them heavier. They were tough to cast.

Yep.....these were the Sebile lures of their day when squid were around.

 

I have the 7" model, same exact color, three trebles, three chambers, rear chamber has two holes in the top, wired through, wire loop 1 1/2 " from and under the nose for connection to running tackle, and looped at the rear for connecting the rear treble. Unsure who manufactured them.

 

Awesome lure!

What's the length. What color would be best in wood. I may have a black stubbie I could send you to try out. It's heavy, casts a mile and sinks quickly. It's 5 1/2 inches long and weighs 3.5 ozs. The shape is almost identical to the old one you have.

 

The stubby is rigged with one treble and a 6/0 dressed siwash. I an rig the rear with a treble. Take this for a ride with your 2 to 6 oz. Mojo. Hang on. biggrin.gif

The plug in my photo is 5". Looking at it again, I'd be surprised if it weighed 1.5oz.

Funny, in spite of the screw eyes, I don't ever recall pulling one out on a fish.cwm27.gif
