Sorting out tackle boxes for an upcoming trip. Found this in one of my bass boxes. Another of the soft bodied models.

From memory it was called a "Plop-R"

Interesting lure Schultzy, do you guys reckon the top half of the lure makes any difference with surface lures? The hardware on this one looks very heavy duty.

The colour of the top of surface lures may have no bearing on their fish attracting qualities but I like mine to be bright on top. It helps old buggers like me see where they are in the low light of dusk or by moonlight.

When I was still making lures I painted most of my surface lures pure white (contrary to the popular truism that surface lures should be black to give a good silhouette). Being white didn't make them any less effective.

Hi guys, agree with everything Neil has said especially the old buggers part lol I am with neil on the white lure thing as well as Ed and myself have had plenty of great sessions on unpainted softies I did have heaps but friends tend to borrow them when were out fishin
