I had one of those in my collection .. that is until my clueless cousin and family picked a few ( like 8 ) of my "hangers" off the wall and gave them to the blues while they were using my cottage this summer .. anyway I had the identical plug . I bought it at a yard sale in South County RI . I asked the fella that sold it to me if he knew who made it ...told me it was a "Super Lure" .. I was never sure if he meant it worked well or if that was the model name of the lure , or the co. that made it I thought it was very Gibbs like with the screw eyes .

Just to add to the above post .... I also remember seeing a very similar plug on an old Pt. Jude Store display card ... there was a blue one and a pink one , but I can not confirm that they had the belly weight...

Just a guess but I would cross off "super lure"
I have never seen one that looks like that. But you never know.

Thats home made. Almost looks like it had been refinished as well. Lots of people made thier own plugs over the years. It's not a recent phenomenon.

Why even try.........

Thanks Again Guys..

Getting some great opinions from the best in the business here ...

Appreciate It....

It very well might see some action, right now I am having a couple of original DannyP Conrad Jr's refinished to go into the rotation.. It seems so many present day fishermen have no clue what some of these vintage lures can do. First time I tossed these little Conrads off a Jetty - I sure did.............
