Pal-O-Mine

DATES & COLORS SHOWN

The Pal-O-Mine series 5000 was introduced in 1925, with a length of 3-1/4" and a weight of 1/2oz sporting two treble hooks. They were also offered at the same time and series number, with a length of 4-1/4" and a weight of 3/4oz. sporting three treble hooks. These two sizes were still offered in the catalogs, after the take over from Shakespeare in 1966.

In 1932 they introduced a smaller version with the same series number, with a length or 2-3/4" and a weight of 1/3 oz. sporting two treble hooks. The smaller size was not listed in catalogs during 1957.

The Jointed Pal-O-Mines series 9000 was introduced in 1934, with a length of 4-1/4" and a weight of 3/4oz. sporting three treble hooks. The smaller size was introduced in 1936 with the same series number, with a length of 3-1/4" and a weight of 1/2 oz. sporting two treble hooks. The jointed models had disappeared from catalogs in 1962.

The small size 2-3/4" series 5000 and jointed series 9000 were not offered in all colors shown below, so the dates will not reflect accurately for these lures.

I am not perfect. If you see any mistakes, please email me. The images are low resolution, but should give you a good idea. My Color Guides are printed at a much higher resolution, which can be purchased.

Any Cataloged Color Help with Images

All colors shown were offered on the Pal-O-Mines, and many other Pflueger lures. The dates are not correct for the small size 2-3/4" series 5000 and jointed series 9000, but are accurate for the 3-1/4" and 4-1/4" series 5000.

Special thanks to Dave Gladwell for providing the information and help with pictures.

If you can help with question marks, please email me with information from source obtained, preferably an old catalog.
