Southern Bait Company
Micco , Florida

Another of the companies that used the Southern Bait Company name was located in Micco, Florida. Lehr M. "Bill" Wertz made lures for only a few years from 1945-1949. In addition to making his own lures, Wertz is believed to have painted some baits for Coast to Coast Tackle of West Palm Beach, Florida.
