Titloe-Heights Bait Mfg
(W. C. Oldenburg)
This bait company was mainly know for its “Combination Fish Decoy and Fishing Lure” that was a metal plug that could be used for spearing through the ice as a decoy (with hooks removed or left on to be a “cheater”) or for casting and trolling from a boat. This bait dates back to the 1930s.
