Does anyone know what these lures are? They are at least 7 years old (but probably much older). Any help is appreciated.

It is (I think). Just googled it and looks exact. You’re right though, the bibs are more curved on mine.

New in packets are still available in some shops for $20, and from what I've seen, that is what collectors pay for them.

In my opinion, they are a sleeper lure and should be worth much more then the retail price

I know of a store that still has dozens that. The proprietor says he has more at home- new. He stated that he hasn’t been able to get any more for the past 10 years
