Early northern pike fish spearing decoy from Drummond island, Michigan. Punched and painted design with traces of original paint. Original tin fins and inset weights for balance.

Finely carved turtle ice fishing decoy. Has inset lead weight in base and bead eyes. There is a hole in the top of the shell which undoubtedly had a wire loop attachment for a line which connected to a jigging pole. The decoy was used to attract large fish which were then speared by the fisherman. This decoy is signed “Gary Eagle” on the base. We have been unable to find anything about him, but suspect he is or was a Native American ice fisherman from Michigan, Minnesota or Wisconsin. 8″L x 4 1/2″ W. (CG-29)
