Can anyone give me the name of this bait? Who made it and so on? Thanks

Mystery Solved

    It's an airplane style jig most often used ice fishing for lake trout (mackinaws). They will weigh from 1/8oz up to 2oz. Many ice fishermen will tip them with a hunk of minnow and jig them. They will 'fly' in circle as they are dropped back down.
    They are made by a number of mfrs. This one looks like it could be a Northland Tackle Co., Bemidji, MN but the term 'airplane jig' is generic to this style jig. The color indicates a newer jig. Most in the past were white, silver, gold or plain lead.
    I've got a couple of rods that maybe you can help me with. Email me for details.

    finchave: we use jigs very similar to this for jigging for Whitefish in Lake Huron-usually in more subdued colors.
