Hi everyone! So, I was out shopping for resale items, vintage, antique and collectible. I was at a sale and bought a box of fishing lures. There were a lot in there and I went through them, priced them and made my money back and then some. I did a lot of research and got a fair price. I have some left which I will mark down and still sell more. But there is one that I couldn't find. And something tells me it may be special. I have a good eye, but I dont know anything really about lures. So I figured, because you guys know everything (see how I did that) you may have some info. So here goes. the picture is next to my iPhone 4, so you can get an idea of the size. Also at first, I thought it was some kind of wood, but I believe its actually some type of other material made to look like wood. Easy to poke with a pin. Here's some pictures. If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it.....

I think it is a crawfish plug called "Cobra". Not sure if that was the company or model. I gave most of my bass fishing tackle to a nephew some time after I moved from the northern part of the state to the shore area about 30 years ago, but I'm sure I had a few. The only reason I remember them is because I was always more attracted to lures from slightly more obscure companies than the Heddon, Arbogast, Rapala, and Creek Chub lures that all my buddies used.

Unbelievable! You are amazing! I found the exact same one after adding crawfish to the end of your search term. I don't have a value yet, but this is the post I found........

"
the lure is a Cobra Fantail II made by Action Lures out of Jackson, Mississippi back in the 70's/80's. The Crayfish is one of 5 colors offered.
Another neat thing about lure beside the body design, is that lure has two line tie offs....one on lip and another on tail. I suppose you can fish deep or shallow depending on which end you tie to."

Thank you so much G!!!!! If I ever see you at the Pic, the beers on me!
