This was virtually the only bass lure I used when growing up. Oh, I did use the Heddon Tiny Torpedo or the "red head / white body popper" occasionally, but the yellow H and H was THE lure that got this kid on the road to loving bass fishing.


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

I'm not that old but I must have caught every fish in my grandmas pond 20 times on an old white h&h. Kinda makes me want to dig one out and throw it around some of the dirtier water lakes around here.

My brother and I would save some of our lunch money every week to buy them, and Rebel cranks... Heck, they were so cheap that made them the perfect bait for a kid. cheers caught a lot of fish on them.

I grew up fishing the Bayous in Louisiana with one and still use it today when I need to
downsize to match the hatch. It was deadly a cple. of years ago when all the small fish were
schooling in Fork. It also will catch the snot out of sand bass.

Grew up in "yankee country" of Louisiana myself, near Shreveport.

I have put it in backwards on a few occasions.

I had issues with that, same as a rocket shad. I use a double split ring setup to fix that problem..
I can't tell you how many times I'd have fish smash the bait and come off, after several lost fish, I noticed the hook was gone. Errrrrrrrr double split ring came to be from that..

The individual packages were stapled to a long card (probably 6-8)!
I also used B&B spinners.
Loved purple and white.

I still throw a white single blade this time of year when shad are spawning and they don't just catch small fish
