Holy Mackerel!

Holy Mackerel, Batman!

Holy Mackerel, Batman!

That’s what a lot of guys were saying when they recently watched the sale of a Storm Wiggle Wart go down on Ebay. We have posted before about similar lures that went for lofty prices. For example, the Arbogast Jitterbug that went for $155. However, there were still some West coast swimbaiters who laughed at that, casually mentioning that they paid over $400 for their Roman Made Mother – just kidding guys. But we do have one that will now top all of those – and by a long shot!

Because the V44 Wiggle Wart that just sold, a new-in-the-box and still sealed Blue Mackerel color, one of the rarest regular color pattern Warts made, went for more than $3,300. Go ahead and read that line again, because it’s not a typo. This bait was a limited production color made for the salmon fishermen of the Pacific Northwest. I’m guessing based on the price that it is safe to say that bait won’t be thrown anytime soon over on one of the Ozark lakes by some tourney competitor. Below is a snapshot of the final sale price. I can only hope the seller went ahead and threw in FREE shipping with this one, and didn’t tag the buyer for the extra $5.00 – LOL.
