Creek Chub 300 Crawdad
The #300 Crawdad came out in 1917 and was made until around 1964. CCBC Crawdads were called The Creek Crab Wiggler up until 1920 when the name was changed to Crawdad. They have bead eyes and rubber legs. The rubber legs are quite fragile so they are often missing. The lips are marked C.C.B.CO Garrett Ind. They were advertised as having 6 catalogued colors but special order colors were also done by request.
This Red Devil Crawdad is a special color. This was made for Western Auto and has an unusual code of V364.
Early Creek Chub Bait Co. Crawdad lures were in this intro box marked Underwater Wiggler Surface Splatter.
This #316 River Peeler Crawdad is a beautiful bait!
The #318 Silver Flash Crawdad is quite desirable!
Creek Chub Crawdads have been found in great 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 Crawdad is.
