Very little is known about Cummings. He lived in Orlando and made 2 lures that were very much like Jim Pfeffer’s lures. The Cast Top and the Orlando Shiner both lures were only in one color and that was the Bass Scale. Cummings baits had a lot more black dots on the sides and wider painted gills. See Pfeffer to compare.
