    They had some pretty cool paint patterns. Especially their orange flake and purple flake maurader. Fish Dog Gary has a few originals. I was considering doing an orange metallic flake on an Intruder to see how it turned out. It literally looks like a Buick Regal low rider on Hydros.

    GC Lure Company from what I understand was in the Inland Empire back in the 90's when they made these Maurader style lures.
    The thing I found very different from the other lures made at that time is the top ring they put on them and the black anodized hooks with high end swivels.
    They also had big bug eyes which stuck out.
    The colors that they did were very well done with a lot of metal flake in them.
    I have repaired and refinished one of them and the resin they are made from is hard as a rock.
    I have 3 of them and I have a darker green with black tiger stripes that I have fished and it definitely got bit.
    Whenever I find a new color I try and buy it. but most of the sellers that have these know that they are a rare find and want good money for them. Let me know if you want to part ways with it and I will make you an offer.

    6C8FCBC4-A2F4-4C6C-857D-D8A7EB1CF9CB.jpeg I have bought these GC bonzi trollers from different members and have yet to troll them. They’re pretty heavy and at least look good. Haven’t found any info on these either.
