Did Tady make any skirted lures? If so what are they called?

I still have one of Tady's heavy chrome heads, originally skirted in pink vinyl I believe. I ran it around San Diego once in awhile in the 70's ... it was way-too-big "be careful what you wish for" risky business with my gear. I remember the big tuna that ate it off my 18' tri-hull. Classic.

This was the "Tady Wahoo Trolling Lure", and normally featured a grass skirt, with a vinyl skirt over it, and a large single hook off the back ring, and also a large single "trap" hook off the front ring.

Mine has a blue and black vinyl skirt. No grass. I remember them working with all the skirt material chewed off. That big chrome head worked well.
