Seller: horsepistol2 (520) 95.2%, Location: Ridgeway, Missouri, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 283550351965 This is an antique Fishing Lure made by Creek Chub Bait Co. Huskies Pikie Minnow No. 2300 with Box. Finding one in box is difficult. I purchased this lure for $60 in 1998 and they were hard to find in larger cities and for that matter anywhere. Now eBay is a source to find them and it is my opinion people have this sense that there is an abundance. My opinion it’s a lot of reselling is going on with very little description of its history. I’m not giving this away because of the efforts I spent searching for one with a box in relatively good shape. I have no time for scalpers. This is an early unmarked lure as described below. It is 100 years plus no question. Creek Chub Bait Company - Garrett, IN The Creek Chub Bait Company (CCBCO) was conceived in 1906 and was producing lures by 1916. The owners were Henry Dills, Carl Heinzerling and George Schultress. Dills was the inventor and received the lure patents. The other two were the businessmen. Their first lure was called the Wiggler. Wigglers had glass eyes and the patented natural scale finish. The most popular lure and the most prolific lure was the Pikie. It had a metal diving lip. Early models had no marking on the lip, but later models were marked CCBCO and the patent date 9-7-20. Creek Chub was one of the last companies to use glass eyes in their lures. You can find the glass eyes and the patent dated lip on lures made in the 1950's. If interested in a decent lure at a realistic price I will be pleased to sell it otherwise players move along. Good luck Brand: Creek Chub
