Creek Chub 100 Wiggler
The #100 Wiggler was the first lure introduced by Creek Chub Bait Company. It came out in 1916 and was made until around 1964. CCBC Wigglers can be found with No Eyes, Glass Eyes, and Tack Eyes. The earliest Wiggler lures have unmarked lips and hand painted gill marks. Later the lips were marked C.C.B.CO Garrett Ind, and after that PAT 9-27-20 was added to the lip. They were advertised as having 12 catalogued colors but many special order colors were also done by request.
Early Creek Chub Wigglers came in yellow introductory boxes.
The #111 Black White Head Wiggler is a beauty!
The #119 Frog Wiggler is one of my favorites!
Occassionally you will find a Wiggler with tack eyes like this!
This #107 Mullet Wiggler is another one of my favorites!
Creek Chub Wigglers have been found in many colors! Some CCBCO boxes have end labels with the color names spelled out. Others are simply stamped with a code. Here is a color chart to help you discover what color your Wiggler is.
