I know it's a long shot; but....

Have you ever seen one, do you have one?

Go here and see if he still makes them. I know he makes his jigs, because I still buy them from him. I know he makes some of his SBs, but do not know if the cantaloupe is one of them. Since he is the original guy to make them, he might still make them or might do it for a special order. Don't know. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Yes sir, I've been to his website. I was hoping someone had some laying around that they weren't using, I really want to see the actual color of these things since I read an old article about them and they peaked my interest. I guess I'll have to call and bug him though.

I'm guessing that it is supposed to mimic a carp, I'll try to call him on Monday and see if he still makes them. I was hoping someone here had some to sell.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! It was a beautiful 13 pound 9 oz bass that Mark Menendez caught at Richland Chambers during the 1997 Megabass event that made it such a special spinnerbait.

Tx for bringing this up. I looked into it a bit -- worked pretty dang well back in the day, which means it could do the same today. Hope someone makes one and tries it.

Take an off the shelf Hildebrandt go-getter, change the blades and the skirt color and you're set
