The Mooney Goodrich Special lure was made in Lakeland, FL. N.E. Mooney made and sold a lure called the Henry A. Goodrich Special. Not much is known about the company other than they made a very interesting bait. The hand-painted pattern on the back of the lure makes it a pleasing effect to the overall character of it. The lure also came with just a dark green back color finish without the hand-painted design. The lure is a surface bait and comes with painted tack eyes. Mooney Goodrich Special lures are considered to be one of the great Central Florida Lures.
