Creek Chub Bait Company


The Creek Chub Bait Company (C.C.B.C.O.) or Creek Chub is one of the most famous fishing lure brands ever. Personally Creek Chub is my favorite.  Their variety of high quality lures in amazing colors make it very enjoyable to collect and display.  Additionally I quite frequently use old Creek Chub lures for fishing and have great results with these old warriors.  Creek Chub lures are great at catching fish and becoming harder to find.  Make sure to see our link below of the lures we currently have for sale by Creek Chub.



Creek Chub was started in 1916 (although there is some confusion dating it back to 1906) by Henry Dills, Carl Heinzerling and George Schulthess.
