Help Identify This Lure

I have what looks like a Mirrolure but has no markings, found it tucked away in a tackle box while spring cleaning.  Can anyone help with identification?  Maybe a prototype?  Thanks

    Looks like a factory defect that never got the diving lip installed.

    Definitly looks L&S ( mirrolure)

    E-mailed Mirrolure, waiting to hear back so I can send them the pic as well.

    Thanks for that info Capt. Bob, very interesting.  I started guiding in '98 so that makes sense as Mirrolure would send quite the care packages to us new guys.....or maybe they knew that I am a native to FL??

    Still unable to find anything on the web as they now have a soft plastic named "Provoker".  Any of yours have a model number?

    Don’t believe that model ever had a number at all.  I started full time in 1996 and from the first placed an order with Mirrolure every two or three years.  I only remember ordering that model once.. I caught fish with it but my anglers didn’t so they didn’t get as much use as I thought they would...

    All these years later I still only hand hard baits to guys and gals with some experience... if I want results.

    Is your issue with your clients that they don’t have patience to wait out the pause ? Or they cant put the lure where

    Bob, is your issue with your clients that they don’t have patience to wait out the pause ? Or they cant put the lure where they should? Or both?

    i haven’t posted in awhile and don’t know how to edit.
  • lemaymiamilemaymiami Posts: 4,420 Captain
    Quick answer.... yes.. to both concerns and you can add to that speed of retrieve and ultimately confidence in what you’re using.  Lots of different aspects to using hardbaits -particularly ones that need to be worked as opposed to simply being retrieved.

    If I had the same angler aboard for a few days all of that would change, but I rarely have the same anglers for more than a few days at a time.

    When I was ten years old I learned to fly fish with a popping bug on the Tamiami Trail. That was the method I was taught, the popper lands and you wait for the ripple to end and then a twitch. That twitch produced a lot of hits and my grandfather insisted on repeating that move. It was a lot to ask of a ten year old, but I did catch a lot of fish.

    and for anyone wanting to learn a bit about tossing lures for both bass and the salt... here's a current thread on another site...https://www.microskiff.com/threads/bass-techniques-inshore.77336/
