It must be this then but the colors are plentiful, did yankee ever make them in a greater variety?

Yes.  To be sure you need to include a photo.

Yankee made a smaller size too. I believe it was 5/8 oz and maybe 5 inches long. I had one of those rare outings on the cape some years back where that plug was hot. Smoldering hot! Chartreuse green was the color. Mind you, I had a good supply of needles with me in all sorts of sizes and color. Pretty good for a $5.00 plug.

I made the mistake of adding a rubber worm to the tail siwash of a yankee. Not a mistake presentation wise, mistake because the rubber melted the plastic of the plug, what a mess.

I didn’t know that was possible... the plug itself melted over time?

The top one (in the pic with both) Trophy Tackle and the color was called "Dee Parrot" The bottom one looks like a BM Fire River color that I custom ordered from Bobby. Someone added the eyes

Neither is plastic. Google images of Bomber Fire River, that's what I gave Bobby to duplicate
