Coldwater Bait Company- Coldwater , Michigan is best known among antique
tackle collectors for their line of early wooden plugs. Such names the
Coldwater Wiggler ,King, Helldiver, Ghost and Skipper come to mind.
Coldwater Bait Company also sold a line of fishing floats and display
equipment such as rod stands. Their line of rod displays were bought by
many of the large well known Tackle manufacturers of the day including
Shakespeare, Heddon , Horrocks & Ibbottson, and many small sporting
goods stores and bait & tackle shops. If any of you have an early
example of one of their floats with provenance, I’d love to see a
picture of it.
