Lures you would like to see in production again

Lots of time on my hands these days-

Any baits/lures you guys would like to see being made again?  

I grew up throwing Shannon Spinners for just about anything, but no longer being made- Hildebrandt made the Nugget which was a good substitute with a little modification.

Woodchoppers had a specific "slurshing" sound on a stop-go retrieve that smallies seemed to find irresistible- the Ace in the Hole was close, but neither are made anymore.

Blue Fox made a 2-bladed vibrax in 5-6 sizes that killed pike and bass- it was essentially a small cowgirl with bucktail- they still make them but only up to a size 3

Rapala DT Fat 0 was a great top water twitch/wake bait, but there are some decent substitutes.

All these aren't in production anymore, but I really wish they were- you guys got anything you'd like to see being made again?

Surfing old threads on a Sunday morning and I find this interesting one...
I even asked/showed Brad Ruh at the Milwaukee Muskie Show about this one. Yes, they are out of production.

Its actually one of my fishing partners looking for these because he's had such good luck with them...To the point that is getting hard to repair them!

Musky Innovations Real Fish series.  Sucker, in WHITE.

That black 4” plastic worm with the metal lip. It had 2 or 3 hooks and was dynamite for walleyes.    Made by LAZY IKE I believe.

Uncle Josh is making the pork rind again.  They stopped making it a number of years ago because of the cost of the pork skin.  They must've found a supplier for it again.

If I could have one lure back again I would choose the Ju Ju jig made by JB Lures.  I've caught so many bluegill on that vertical jig.  Glad I bought a descent amount of them when they made them.

Saw this thread long time ago and hesitated but...but not any more. First bait comes to mind is any of the Norman crank baits. Certainly in the crawdad color.

My favorite...by far...is the Berkley Power Bait (original power grub) 4 inch in the color pumpkinseed!!! Ya'  can't find em anywhere!!! Caught multiple species with that lure. 

Oh yes! The Uncle Josh pork rind...I think almost anyone would could catch a bass with that lure. Depending, of course on the color ya threw.

There was a Fireball jig-n-minnow that was translucent pink, called the guppy.  Drifting with those under a bobber was a panfish killer.

Woodtick musky lures.

One of my all time favorites!

If I recall they were made in Lake Tomahawk

Yes the FIREBALL JIGNMINNOW is a real crappie slayer. 5 years ago I found a load of the smallest size and bought the entire inventory from a bait shop outside of CLINTONVILLE for 60$. I still have about 140 left!      We both thought that we screwed the other guy so it was a good deal for both of us.                  Another great bait was the ARBOGAST MUD BUG in bullhead colors.       Slayed the walleyes on those 2 small humps in LAKE DELTON.       CARPIO
