AbstractA fishing lure detector and method of binding foam or textile material to plastisol. The fishing lure detector member made of foam or textile material is for improving the fishing lures. The fishing lure detector means is connected to a fishing lure body at a position adjacent or in front of the fishing lure hook to aid the fisherman in detecting when a fish strikes the lure and in turn aiding the fisherman to set the hook in the fish. The fishing lure detector member includes resilient open cell plastic material that may be integrally connected to the body of a plastic worm lure or connected to the body of a hard lure. The open cell plastic material is engaged by the fish striking the body of the fishing lure and transmits a tug signal along the fishing lure. The fishing lure body when constructed of a flexible or soft thermoplastic such as plastisol or a polyvinyl chloride allows both the fishing lure body and the detector member to stretch longitudinally with one another. The detector member provides electrical and touch properties similar to the thermoplastic fishing lure worm.
