My Mom worked at the Woolworth's Store in town and they carried these--I bought one and actually caught a few bass on it before I lost it to a limb.

And, yes, if they got in contact with a River Runt, Jitterbug or Hula Popper, they would melt in a flash.

Pico Perch was all time favorite. I think I have one left.

Remember the little rattles that can be inserted into plastics, and attached to hooks.

My all time bait is the original Berkley Power Worm in motor oil or black shad. When they first came out I must've caught 5000 bass on them. I seriously fished every day and it wasn't uncommon to catch 50 bass or more in a day. My left thumb looked like it went through a meat grinder for years.

I have a huge box of assorted bass worms and lures from the 80's and early 90's. Nothing wrong with them. Still in bags, and pull some out and use them occasionally. Lots of the old style long wiggly worms, motor oil, pumpkin seed, and some chartreuse. Used to tear them up in Toledo Bend and Laccasine.

I used to catch tons of pond bass on the Dances eel. The ol Lazy Ike worm too. I was a sucker for weird baits when I was little. I had the snake ones and mouse one. Neve caught crap in those.

I caught quite a few bass on a Bill Norman weed walker lure. It was a plastic spoon that had a blade cut out in the middle that would spin and throw water. Great top water bait over grass.

Anyone remember what that was called? Or better yet does anyone know if they are still manufactured or available?

Man, I slaughtered the bass back in the day on that thing!

I remember getting one of these for Christmas when I was 13. Was too afraid to throw it because I didn't want to lose it. Was mainly kept in the tackle box as a novelty.

I think I still have that buzz bait you're talking about op, I'll take a pic tonight. I'm selling it too for $50.

I've been using the Choppo 130 size lately and smacking them good on it in the silver/black color. Good luck
