Any help would be greatly appreciated. I pulled this from a lot circa 1910-1945. I believe the paint scheme is too detailed (scales, etc.) to be hand crafted folk art - but I cannot find anything similar in a couple large catalogs. Very light soft wood body. I'll keep searching but would love a hint.

    This bait is a Jim Pfeffer Hud Chug in Bass Scale. I have over 400 of these baits. Check it out at

    I viewed one on ebay, in a tackle box lot, identical - but with an additional front prop and the eyelet was mounted above the mouth.
