In 1927, Joseph Martin created what would become one of America’s most renowned fishing lures. Martin Fish Lure, based in Seattle, Washington, produced a wide variety of lures, such as fly rod poppers, pikes, and injured minnows. Martin Fish Lure was revered for its salmon plugs and quickly became the country’s largest producer. The company primarily focused on saltwater models, like the Model 77, Jetty Model, and the Atom look-alike. The Martin Injured Minnow Lure was manufactured in the 1930's and the company prospered from the successful lures like the Creek Chub Injured Minnow and the Heddon SOS constructed from wood. Although Joseph passed away in 1943, Martin Fish Lure continued to prosper into the 1980's. To this day, the most antique Martin Lures have a frog spot stenciled in red on the belly of the lure. So next time you are casting out, take a moment, flip over your lure and see if the signatory red mark reveals you are reeling in a big catch with one of America’s favorites.
