Laz is right on the money clapclap ,
I have been racking my brain as I recognised the lure but couldn't go past the more popular flatfish styles, totally forgot the Flap Jack crazysmilie

Heres a pic with box, no idea of exact details re size etc.

Hi Frank,
No sorry, philched the pic online when chasing some info a while back.
I have only had one Flap Jack, and it was a Yellow Shore one, made much later with Helins type hook hangers, IE screw eyes and was about 4 1/2" long so I am guessing more a Musky set up.

Cheers Brad

clapclap

The lure is a plastic model and about 3 1/2 inches long

It looks the same as the flap jack

Nice work guys and thank you.

Looking at it closer thw hangers are slightly different and it has a screw in the rear end of the sucker tghat seems to serve no apparent purpose.

Could be the earlier model plastic Paw Paw? !!

No weed guard either

-duh

The one and only Flap Jack in my collection also has a little stud in the bum, purpose unknown.

It also has moulded writing on the underside:

PAW PAW BAIT Co.
FLAP JACK
PAW PAW. MICH.

It has the stout hangers too, unlike your example MXB.

They are wonderful old vintage bass lures, but I shudder to think what a barra or jack would do to those hangers! Image

Definitely a Flapjack.

Ironically....I just picked one up off of Ebay.....which matched an empty box I had.

Talk about good luck $$$$$
