I was given this tackle box when I was about 10 years old when my neighbor passed away, nearly 40 years ago. I've never fished with anything in here. I've just held onto it because It meant a lot to me. Now that I'm getting into bass fishing, I pulled the box out just to see what was in it. Do any of y'all recognize any of these?

Top row second from the right looks like a Heddon river runt. That in a perch color, kills the Pike up in Minnesota. Has a real wide wobble


There are no fish in sonic pond EDIT: Except 1 20lb catfish

Far right top looks like a Crazy shad or hell raiser, one of the other may be a boy howdy in the middle.
Cool old box, looks like mine from the mid seventies.

Those Heddon Torpedos used to catch fish. Now they are building spybaits like some of they old once, but a bit less bouyency. Might try me some of them propeller things. roflmao

Love the top water prop baits and those are about as good as it gets. You have a great box. I believe I would build a shadow box if you don't have a big collection and saver them. They are wonderful and good memories.
Thanks for sharing.

Anyone recognize the three in the middle and far left top?
I know I've seen them before but too long ago.

I believe that the long double prop sticks (sparkle and black ones) are Smithwick F200 size Devil's Horse lures. Someone please correct me if my memory is faltering.
