They used to call them "cow bells".

For trolling lakers, but smaller ones can be used for walleye and pike.

The inline weights on a couple help to get them down deep.

Thanks Mac. The larger ones say Seneca on them so I thought maybe Lakers. I thought he fished pike in Oneida mostly but he must have gotten around. Would these dat back to 40's-50's?

Could be that old.
I fished with that stuff in the 60’s and 70’s.  A little in the early 80’s.

We trolled cow bells in rivers and lakes for years. I still see them being used on Winnipesaukee, Squam, etc.
They produced plenty of fish.
Nice collection

Great display! I fished "Cow Bells" in the 40's and 50's. The short ones. They do work but I hate to troll. My buddy use to say lots of guys die while trolling! They fall asleep, fall over board and drown! :laugh: :laugh:

I walked into a bait store once back in the 80's asking if they had cowbells. I got a look like I was crazy and "why would we have cowbells in a bait store?" I had to explain to them what they actually were.
