The Paw Paw Caster Baits were introduced sometime in 1938, with various lengths from 2-1/2" to 5-1/2". They were offered in a regular body type, as well as a jointed body type in different sizes. The most noteable and appealable factor of the Caster is the fish-like carved tail.

I will not get into the differenances of type of Casters, because there are 23 different combinations. I will try to show all the colors offered, which I understand to be eighteen.  The body style I show on this page should reflect the color, not the style. No one particular size came in all the colors.

I am not perfect. If you see any mistakes, please email me. The images are low resolution, but should give you a good idea. My Color Guides are printed at a much higher resolution, which can be purchased.

All colors shown were offered on the Caster Baits, but many other Paw Paw lures used the same colors during the same period.
