Guess the Lure

410 posts in this topic

Forgive a question from left field, but where in the world did "Spotted Ape" come from? I can't see an ape in that lure. :?

I have sold a lot of the "Nip-I-Didde" .. "Spotted Ape" I would say that in my territory of NWF and Extreme S Central AL that 75 % of my "Nip-I-Didde" sales were the "Spotted Ape" some did reference it as "Shad" (never could see a shad in that color combo) as the SH was listed as Shad Color. :)

OK ... U R up again KC :yay:

Where Did The Name "Spotted Ape" Come From ?? Maybe some one knows ... where did the name for a lot of other lures and colors come from ?? :?

KC that is going to be a tough one unless U R in the part of the country that uses a lot of spoons .. :huh:

Looking to see what it is.

Got a few just the same lips down in my basement , bought them 17 cents each some years ago from "Moore's Lures" !

Sorry Diemai, no knock off! That plug was made in the late 40's or very early 50's company closed in 1951

OK, well I'll jump in with an easy one. You don't see them too much any more and I have revitalized these with a new paint job. The bodys are only 1 5/8" in length.
