Egg Coffee, Cookies and Fish

May 8, 2013 by Hubbard County Historical Museum Director

Everyone here at the museum would like to wish everyone good luck fishing!

We would like to invite you to a open house at the museum!  Please join us for Egg Coffee and Cookies from 1 to 4 PM on Friday May 10.

Here is an old photo  of Fuller’s Tackle Shop.Fullers Window

Everyone looked in this window on main street..if you were a fisherman or fisherwoman you visited Fuller’s window.   If you were lucky enough to catch a big one, your fish would be displayed on the ice along with a cardboard sign that held all the information: type of fish, it’s length and weight, what bait was used and what lake it was caught at.  I believe the signs might have had a spot for your name..where you were from and which resort you stayed at.

If anyone has one of those old cardboard signs we would sure appreciate a donation to the museum so that everyone could  see what they looked like.  I know some of the resorts used to collect them and hang them up in their recreation rooms.
