Paul Brown’s Corky lures still catching big speckled trout

Corky lures are a Texas legend. Originally hand produced in a Houston garage by Paul Brown, the bait became famous for the huge trout that consistently fell for it.

Made of a durable, soft plastic that surrounds a stainless steel wire with rattles in a cork cylinder, the lure might have hooked more super-sized trout than any other artificial bait.

After decades of producing the lure in his garage, MirrOlure bought the operation from Brown and continues the tradition with their “Paul Brown’s Original Series” of baits in a wide variety of colors.

Any doubts over the effectiveness of the bait will be quickly removed once you use them, whether you target trout, redfish or bass.
