Tampa Bait & Tackle Co made four different lures. The first was the Angle Frog. It is believed to be the forerunner of the Dalton Special. It is a top water lure that resembled a frog laying on its side with one eye underwater and one on top. The second is a darter style lure called the Tampa Two Thousand. The third and fourth are smaller darter style lures. The Seahopper had a lead belly weight screwed to it and the Seatroll did not. They also made a lure with the weight on the front of it. The Angle Frog and Tampa Two Thousand are copied from the earlier Dazzy Vance lures made by Paul Manon. The Tampa Bait & Tackle Co lures are considered to be made by one of the great Tampa Bay Area Lure Makers.
