Fishing lures

Saw these old lures at the Trader's Fair...thought they were a good photo for tonight.

We went fishing late this evening...Roger spent more time untangling one mess of mine than he did fishing.  I would have done it myself, but he knows how much I love fishing so he just gave me his rod and took mine.  I really don't know how it happened...I had just caught and released a bass, and started to wind the rest of the line in and boy, did I make a mess.

I caught another big crappie, but not as big as the one a few nights ago...and had another crappie on my line and lost my lure.  The crappie wrapped itself around a limb/small bush....and it got off the lure, and left my lure stuck in the tree.  It was a top of the water lure that had two treble hooks, so it got stuck good.  I have had it for years...not sure what it was called.

It was very much like this has caught a lot of fish.  Mine was even light blue, with a white bottom.
