    Abstract: A buoyant fishing lure is adapted to be drawn along the surface of water. The lure is in the shape of a rodent or other small creature and has a body coated with fur and a tail composed of a strip of fur. The lure has protruding concave shaped ears. The fur and the ears cause water through which the lure travels to flow outwardly from the body and to cause turbulence in the water.

  • Patent number: 8898951
    Abstract: A fishing lure includes a leading lure body shaped like a fish; and a trailing lure body shaped like a fish. The leading lure body includes a passage therethrough to enable a fishing line to slidably pass through the passage for connection to the trailing lure body. The trailing lure body includes a front portion and a curved front surface. The front portion of the trailing lure body is weighted such that the trailing lure body tends to sink front portion first in water. The curved front surface of the trailing fishing lure facilitates a swimming motion for the trailing lure body when the trailing lure body moves through water, and tends to lift the trailing lure body if the trailing lure body is pulled through water.

  • Publication number: 20120246997
    Abstract: An apparatus for attracting fish including a fin that imparts motion to the tackle when the tackle is deployed and moves relative to water. A weighted body having a cabochon shape includes a fin member that extends past the body. The fin member includes an attachment portion and a fin that has a non-planar configuration. The attachment portion is secured to a flat surface of the body. In one embodiment the fin extends forward and forms an obtuse angle relative to the attachment portion. In another embodiment the fin has two members disposed laterally on opposite sides of the body. The fins are blades that cause the body to spin or rotate when moved relative to the water. In yet another embodiment the fin extends forward and aft relative to the body, and the fin has openings for connecting lines and hooks, thereby replacing the eyelet of other embodiments.

  • Patent number: 7716871
    Abstract: A fishing lure for spraying water droplets fore and aft of the fishing lure. The fishing lure has a monolithic fishing lure body extending along an axis from a head end to a tail end of the fishing lure body. A first substantially planar surface is formed at the head end of the fishing lure body such that the first substantially planar surface forms a first angle with respect to the axis. A second substantially planar surface is formed at the head end of the fishing lure body such that the second substantially planar surface forms a second angle with respect to the axis. A third angle is formed with respect to the first and second substantially planar surfaces such that the third angle is the sum of the first angle and the second angle. A crotch is defined by the intersection of the first substantially planar surface and the second substantially planar surface.

  • Publication number: 20090211145
    Abstract: A fishing lure assembly is disclosed which comprises a blade free to oscillate, yaw and produce a trailing wake as the fishing lure assembly is displaced through water. A weight is affixed to the fishing lure assembly, but inferiorly disposed such that the blade is free to oscillate and have a yaw divergence which is substantially unaffected by inertia of the weight. The fishing lure may be variably constructed to include one or more hooks and soft bait and hard bait bodies which are disposed to follow behind in the trailing wake. In one embodiment, a float is added to the lure assembly. In another embodiment, a combination of a frame and blade is disclosed, the blade being flexible and resilient and affixed to the frame such that the blade is securably affixed but replaceable in a fishing environment.

    Abstract: A realistically shaped dragonfly fishing lure with a body comprised of several sections, which mimic those of a dragonfly. The dragonfly fishing lure has an H-shaped wing positioned on the top side of the body. More specifically, the H-shaped wing is attached to the thorax of the dragonfly fishing lure. The dragonfly fishing lure has at least one hook attached to the bottom of the body. The dragonfly fishing lure is designed to realistically look like and behave like a real dragonfly, thus replacing prior dragonfly lures.

  • Patent number: 7234266
    Abstract: The present invention provides an adjustable fishing lure that has a flexible body and an integrated bendable stay that lets the user bend the body into a specific shape for the purpose of changing the action of the lure. The body of the lure can be bent and will remain in a bent configuration, causing the lure to travel at different water depths as it is pulled through the water.

  • Patent number: 7000346
    Abstract: A fishing lure for use as a top water lure having a construction of negative buoyancy. The lure has an elongated weighted body resembling a squid with angled channels defined in the top and bottom surfaces of the body. Upon the lure being retrieved by an angler, water gushes through one of the channels and splashes over and about the leading end of the lure, causing the lure to “swim” over the water surface with the trailing end submersed in the water. This presents the appearance of a fleeting baitfish. By careful selection of colors and reflective strips the lure will have an appearance that is very visually stimulating to game fish.

  • Patent number: 6430867
    Abstract: A directionally controllable fishing lure enables an angler to cast the lure to a desired area, with the lure traveling an arcuate path to the left or right upon retrieval. The direction of turn is determined by the angler, depending upon the rigging of the lure. The present lure has an elongate body with angularly truncated faces at each end thereof. The two faces are angled in opposite directions to one another, and the lure body is ballasted so that the two faces are always angled to one side when the lure is floating in the water, rather than facing upwardly or downwardly. The angularly truncated ends produce an asymmetrical hydrodynamic reaction as the lure is drawn through the water, causing the lure to turn in one direction or the other. If the angler attaches the fishing leader or line to the first end, the lure will travel in an arcuate path to the angler's right (or to the left, when considered in the direction of travel of the lure).
