Spoffords Needlefish I think, but they were 8" - DZ would know for sure

Thanks! The body is about 7.5”. With the grommets at either end it’s about 8”

Spoffords was solid plastic with multiple belly weights I think.

Yes sir, its a Spofford. I think hey made three sizes. I think they were made locally Massachusetts ( Martha's Vineyard?) if my memory serves me correct? The small one was a killer on schoolies and albies. Did well with them. The one in photo looks like the largest one @ 2 oz. ?

My largest bass came on one of those in Block Island green with two belly weights removed.

Very versatile plugs but I haven't thrown one in years.

I have one like this but it has wire hangers and no swivels. Did they make them both ways?

 

Thanks,

Ted

The smaller size had hook hangers vice wire-thru.
