11 posts in this topic

Two old Dannys. White is 5.5”Herring is 5”. Each weigh about 1.5oz as rigged. Based on line tie and tail wraps, they seem to be same maker. Seem to be same maker….Any ideas?

Since they're already used, fish them.

Fish the hell out of them, super early beachmaster, basically exact copies of Dan's stuff. Not worth much in that condition but, I guarantee they'll still catch bass.

I can see where folks would encourage you to fish them due to their condition, but I have always been of the mind that old, used plugs have that kind of "soul" that nothing new can match. It is so cool to see examples of Bobby's earliest work, especially in two designs that he doesn't make all the time.

Yep, early BM 5 1/2” eely, and smaller sized bootleg.  The eely isn’t too common with glitter.

The craziest part is, I got them both this summer at two separate yard sales.......The eelie came from one sale where I got a box of old plugs.....The bootleg came from another sale where I also got a bunch of stuff that also included a beat up old mini Musso bottle.
