Joe Yee 16″ Fish Head Scoop


This is a 16” Joe Yee Fish Head ‘Scoop’ and it is very old and truly rare.  This is the largest lure Joe offered in his only catalog ever printed, “Joey’s Custom Lures” and was listed as Lot #4, Item C, No. 7 Fish Head.

‘Scoops’ are what Joe called these, and they were used way back when people pulled lures around slowly with row boats and/or small engines.  As engines improved and the desire to cover more water evolved, big scoops faded away as the increased trolling speeds caused them to come out of the water and skip.  See ‘Scoops’ on page 97 of the book, “Joe Yee and his Lures” and as shown in the photos.

You can see the reproduced flyer and this style of lure on page 156 of the book “Joe Yee and His Lures” and a copy of the page in the photos here.

This lure is from Dan Magers’ personal collection, and it is guaranteed authentic.
