Transparent orange body with yellow ribs, black face and yellow spine, and yellow eyes. This was 1 of 4 in a series of cataloged colors referred to as "Spook Glow". Cataloged in 1951 for River Runt Spooks and last listed in 1952.

This color has also been found under the Spook Ray (SR) color code, SR-XOY as evidenced by the box in the picture above though it was never cataloged as such.

In 1977, an identical color was cataloged for a Deep Diver River Runt Spook called Orange, Yellow Shore (OSS).

(Special thanks to Donnie Shingler for the Lucky 13 picture!)

REPRODUCTION ALERT! This color has been reproduced in Heddon's Punkinseed lure as a 'Collector' item in the past few years (2006-2008). It was never actually made by Heddon in the 1950's time frame.
