Choice of Fishing Lures for Isle Royale

Post by Midwest Ed » Tue Jun 28, 2016 8:34 pm

Johnhens just posted a great link in the History forum about the restoration and maintenance of the rustic cabins of Isle Royale. When reading through the article I noticed a great picture of the inside of the Snell cottage at Tobin Harbor. It featured one wall covered in lures. Pay particular attention to the size and coloring of the spoons. I was able to find a high resolution of the photo on article's website. I would normally downsize the photo but in this case it helps to make out the details.

It is interesting that most of the lures seen are spoons (and dogers to attract). No rapalas or crankbait/minnow type lures. No jigs that I can see. I bring a good selection of what is there if I am paddling.
