what did poeple put in the stink hole... fish oil, eel chum.extract, might need to make a A40 with one... use a extra small salt shaker top... could even thread the wood to screw it on and off

Thanks guys- I found this on Trophy Tackle. I love this kind of stuff.

Dee was a good friend of Stevie's and if I am not mistaken, Dee was a freind of Stevie's Dad before he departed. So Stevie kept in touch with Dee through the years... kind of like a family friend. I don't think Dee was an angler. At least I never fished with him or heard him speak of fishing, but Dee made a lot of custom tackle for Stevie. Dee had an enormous metalmaking shop, and mostly did NYC municipal contract work - traffic signs, stuff for Board of Ed, etc. Dee had pretty much any machine tool you could ever think of - and a large scale operation employing many people. But Trophy Tackle and the plugs you see there were Steve's creation - although Dee did them at his shop. I really don't think Steve had the money to get a start-up company off the ground was the problem. There never really was a company to speak of, and I don't thnk many of those plugs were ever made. The "Trophy Tackle" ones made by Dee for Stevie had to be the early nineteen-eighties.

Bobby- So Dee loved to fish. There is a lot of wrong stuff said on these boards and your knowledge is tremendous. Thanks so much for setting things straight.

Did you ever turn plugs for Campo?

They made a darter, too. That I've seen, but did they produce anything else?

This was the Darter also made in Dee's shop for Campo. Not mine. According to Bobby, a few were absolute killers, others did not swim correctly. Very hard to get the angles right all the time. Still a few of the very good ones out there. Not many made.
