Miscellaneous Vintage Fishing Lures.

We have a taste of several different companies like The Mercoy Tackle Company of Grosse Point, Michigan, who first introduced the Mercury Minnow fishing lure in 1949. The Mercury minnow is just that, it’s call to fame coming from the ball of Mercury that rolls around inside the lure, creating a wobble action when it’s retrieved, coming with the slogan “It act’s alive”. Hex Bait Company from Brockville Ontario Canada, started in 1930 and lasted until the 1960's The company was founded by Hector MacLean.  Early Gibbs tool and Stamping works, with our early Gibbs Martin Salmon Plug. We will set up some of our unboxed lures here also as we get them photographed.
