Its been used ever since as it was tried & proven by 3 generations of Professional Fishing Guides. The Looter Lure is a premium lure made from solid brass that is then plated with jewelry quality silver & gold. What makes the Looter Lure special is that its pure silver quality will retain its color at any depth, which is where other metals and colors would loose their quality below certain water depths. The Looter Lure can be casted, trolled, or jigged, although its original purpose was intended to be trolled for salmon on the Great Lakes.   Fishing Connection was featured in Fishing Tackle Retailer Magazine!    Don’t forget your fishing license! Click on the link below:  Fishing Licenses    Larry M. with the most bass caught in 24 hours in 2017 and 2018!
