Bass fishing as a hobby has been around for decades – which means many anglers of today have old and classic bass lures that they have inherited or acquired over time. Some fishermen use the lures in their everyday approach while others showcase them because of their rarity and vintage appeal. Some swear that classic bass lures work better than the lures of today because they were made of wood and not plastic.
These classic lures are obviously no longer in production and because of that are in limited supply. Vintage bass lures can range in value from a few dollars up to hundreds and even thousands for the very rare. Below we pictured and identified some common vintage lures from some of the major lure companies including Heddon, Shakespeare and South Bend.
