Porter Bait Company 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.
