Also are you a collector? A fisherman? Or nostalgia person?

Iam a novice collector of sorts and a fisherman at heart.

Iam not afraid to buy a collector piece and use it and lose it.

Johnny J can attest to that I had no problem tying on old school jigs hooking fish and loosing them to it too. In the end it makes fishing learning and having fun doing it
I have a few bartenders left

Theres still 4 days to go on the bidding. They have not even reached the last 15 minutes where everybody goes all in. Place your bets. How high is this thing going to go for?

I think this will easily go over $300, the last one which was a large went for $243, and XL is more desirable.

BTW, I just got off the Intrepid trip where that pic in the auction was taken and the Intruders really do work well.

    It sold for $ 275 and I would like to see the guy have the courage to put it in a trolling spread.

    If you paid 275 for a meat tube lure, you really do not care if you loose it. You play at the high stakes tables....or you like high price Hookers.

    Fishybuzz asked me to post this photo for him:

    A "gently used" XL Hooker Intruder with 12 confirmed kills on two trips... Not for sale:D


    My personal comment is that it is amazing how well that old hard resin holds up to the toothy critters. Also, seeing this one work in person, I am a believer as well. I happen to have one of the Large sized ones, and I ain't getting rid of it either.

    I can't even tell you how many this thing has killed but I do know that no matter how many fish or how many times it gets dropped on the deck it always swims perfectly and never needed to be "tuned"...
