Southern Bait Company


Not much is know about this company but the baits closely resemble Dixie Bait Co or Porter. Boxes for these baits were a two piece cardboard with a red border with blue and green lettering. Cities found printed on the boxes include St. Augustine, Ormond Beach, Minneola and Daytona just to name a few.
