Bon-net, Hobbs Supply Co./Bon-net Bait

1949-1952

Eau Claire

The Bon-Net Bait came about as the result of the end of production of Heddons 6-hook Surfusser lure. Hobbs Supply actually contracted with Arnold Tackle company of Paw Paw, Michigan to produce these baits. They contracted to produce 2 orders of 6,000 baits with the first order being packaged in a green box with the Hobbs address. The second order of 6,000 baits came in a yellow box with the Arnold address. These lures are readily found and come in a variety of colors, although the paint has a tendency to chip easily from all of the hooks making contact.
