I just acquired a So-Co Baits Brown Chief and a Snook Bait Co. Big Snook Silver Flash.Both are in their origianl boxes which is why can identify them.Can you guys give me some information on them and maybe tell me their value?Thanks in advance,JD

Wow you hit a home run here. The Snook bait in the box is the big snook swimmer model from around 1950. It has a value of $400 to $600 or more depending on condition. The color looks like white ghost or spook. The Brown chief is a home run. Very rare bait and box from the mid to late 1940s. Value is what someone is willing to pay. Lets say it could be well over $750 to $1000 or more. I would surely pay more to get one. Great find!

Sorry after looking at the snook again the color could also be silver flash if the color around the eye is dark green and it has a dark green stripe down its back. If the back is white then it is spook.

I wanted to ask where to find out about some old rods.They look like they might be good ones.No markings on them that I could see.There were reels too.Mostly Penn.
