**This lure is brand new handmade in Joe Yee's shop and came directly from him. All of our Joe Yees are 100% authentic, and most can be shown with a photo of Joe Yee himself. We get all of our new inventory directly from Joe Yee and not from other individuals - All inventory that did not come from Joe Yee himself will be otherwise noted with "Pre-Owned" in each lure Title.**
The "501" got its name after a 501 lb Blue Marlin that was caught on the first of its shape that Joe made by one of his customers back in the day. The Baby 501 is a smaller clone of the regular 501 and is 2" in length from the tip of the nose to the end of the end of the lure face (above the saddles). It's a double tapered plunger with 9" sized skirt saddles. This is one of Joe's most well known lures. The standard 501 is a 12" skirt saddle version.
This particular head has classic Abalone shell covering the insert with Joe's "Shakey Eyes." These are very difficult to find now.
