Porter Bait Company Fishing Lures

Porter Bait Company - Daytona Beach, FL

Dick Porter made his first lead-headed pier baits in about 1920. In the 1940's, he expanded his lure line to include traditional looking wooden lures. The Pop-Stop, Darter and Shrimp are a few of the lure names. The older Porter lures have a bull's eye on the belly as a distinguishing characteristic. The first boxes are yellow, then black and then with a clear cellophane window. Porter is probably best well known for his clothes pin type pier bait lures.
