31 grand for a fishing lure

10 posts in this topic

Someone posted this earlier but it was probable dropped because it contained the link to the certain online auction site. This was a legit sale. For those whom didn't see it the lure was an old Heddon wood plug with a blade at the front and a blade at the back which rotated when the lure was cranked in it appeared to have treble hooks mounted on the sides of the lure this lure was far from mint condition just goes to show one mans trash is another's treasure

It's a Heddon Dowagiac Minnow that's circa about 1900 to 1916. I have one that's in great condition and is a "green crackleback" model 150. I know it's worth alot but not 31K!!....T

I too have a couple of lures similar to the one pictured here only green spotted or what ever. My Step-Dad gave me a tackle box of lures that hadn't seen the water in over 40 years and wanted me to see if I could sell them on the garage sale for ten bucks!! I never even knew he had ever wet a line! I was completely shocked to see what was inside that metal box.
He got his ten dollars, but I will be keeping the 40 year old cast-offs until I have a glass case made for them to hang in the den. That little metal tackle box is a treasure chest full of gold as far as I am concerned.
I also got my Dad out in the fish house with me for a few hours this past winter. The fish didn't cooperate until after he left but he told my mom that he might have to get himself one of those four-wheelers. wink.gif Go figure. Just when you thought you knew somebody,huh? I just have to laugh-TROY

T-Pone: the lure in the pic is a little older than yours. i never saw one go for 30 geez but i saw one go for 17geez. yours has gills and the shallow cup hangars. the lure in the pick is a circa 1904-1912 and maybe made by jeanette hawley(heddons daughter). it's a rare color and it may be a floater(without belly wieghts). your lure was made between 1912 and 1916 and it is in great condition.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
