1. A lure for catching squid and the like comprising a hollow elastic body, said hollow elastic body being elongated and having holes on each longitudinal end, a hook device disposed at one end of said elastic body, said hook device including a longitudinally contiguous core and shank, one or more umbrella-type hook elements disposed on said core, ring means disposed about said hook elements and said core to prevent the hook elements from sliding on said core, said shank passing through one of said holes at the longitudinal end of said hollow elastic body and extending into said hollow elastic body, said core being disposed outside said hollow elastic body adjacent to said one hole at the longitudinal end of said elastic body, said umbrella-type hook elements having first radial portions extending radially outwardly from said core and second longitudinal portions extending longitudinally toward said hollow elastic body, said core having a connector extending on the side of said radial portions opposite said elastic body, and means connecting said shank and said connector to a fishing line such that a plurality of lures may be connected in series and each elastic body is adapted to be compressed to facilitate catching squid or the like on said hook device when the fishing line having the series-connected lures is pulled up.
2. A lure according to claim 1 wherein said shank terminates within said hollow elastic body, said fishing line being connected to said shank at a flexible connecting location within said hollow elastic body, whereby the plurality of series-connected lures may be wound on a circular reel as each lure bends at said flexible connection location.
3. A lure according to claim 1 wherein said shank terminates within said hollow elastic body, a connecting link attached to said shank at a flexible connection location, said connection link extending through said hollow elastic body to pass out of said other hole in said elastic body, said fishing line being connected to said connecting link externally of said elastic body at a second flexible location, said plurality of series-connected lures being capable of being wound on a circular reel as each lure bends at said first and second flexible connection locations.
