XBP - Pearl & Black Shore Minnow

COLOR NAME: Pearl & Black Shore Minnow
RELATED COLOR(S): Unknown #16, Pearl & Red Shore Minnow, Unknown #79 - Pearl & Blue Shore Minnow?, Blue Pearl Shore Minnow (XPLB)
LURE(S) PICTURED: River Runt Spook Sinker (9110XBP), Sonic (385XBP)

White body with shades of blue, pink, and yellow spots, black rib pattern on either side, and blue around eyes on face. Often found with one or more of the pale colors missing or nearly gone. Sometimes confused with the later version of White & Black Shore Minnow (XWB) since XWB is the same but absent the color spots and blue face. Cataloged for River Runt Spooks in 1948.

The Sonic lure has the black ribs in the 'arrowhead' form; this dates to the mid to late 1960's based on the box style.
