Great lures back in the day.
One of my trips back to San Diego, I saw that someone was making knockoffs.

As an aside, does anyone remember the Stingaroo lures? It had a solid cylindrical body with 4 curly tails coming off the body perpendicular to it.

I'm guessing 80'-83' and I got them at Gemco, Dooley's or the 1st Turners on LB blvd.
I remember they caught everything.
Should I break em open?View attachment 1118305
I would not open them, it would devalue their worth considerably. I would store them another 40 years so your grand-kids can throw them out.

I killed it today board fishing on the calicos. Lines in the wax are fish measurements before release ( 12, 15, 17 1/2 and a 21" hog) with bait of choice.
Imma toss in a scrounger tomorrow.
