I think his name is Tony Burmeck.

These plastic lures are rather collectable & are huge.

Bob, the yanks run use these things on Musky.

Fred Jobson apparantly fished these on Cod with success.

I don't use heavy enough line these days to fish the whoppers so they hang in the shed.

These lures are still being made. I picked up several big musky lures when I was in the states in November.

Here are my three "Burmeks" .
The top two are reasonably new ones , swapped these with friends .....the one on bottom I have found on a local fleamarket .......I believe , that this is a vintage lure !

Still has its original hooks......check out the subtle differences on the front section......first , the eyes are molded somewhat smaller and not bulging out.....second , the rear portion of the back of front section does not potrude , the section is cut straight down !

On the newer lures it does potrude a bit over the rear, I guess to avoid tangling or to prevent the connecting eyescrews from twisting within and bind ?

I think to have read , that the lure was designed in 1969 by that certain Mr. Burmek mentioned in a post above , it once made a haul of about 40 muskies within two or three days , guess , that its reputation is based upon that event ?

It does not dive too deep , at a slow retrieve the big fin would cause quite a wake on the surface , sticking out like a sharks fin , but strongly wiggling left/right .

greetz , diemai howdy
