Ed Lasek's Tackle Box Baits (Columbus, Indiana)

The Honey Bee Lure Was made by Ed Lasek’s Tackle Box Baits.  The company was located at 1319 Locust Drive, Columbus, IN and manufactured these lures sometime around the 1950's.

This lure is often misidentified as a Creek Chub Prototype lure.   However, this and others were found in the original Ed Lasek package so we know it is not a Creek Chub lure.

The lure is made of plastic and has soft, leather legs.  I have found three different colors of this lure so far.
