Years ago I used this lil ice jig called a Pin-Min. Came on a card with all kinds of colors available.
Does anybody know if these are still made? I believe they were hand made somewhere in Ohio.

I have a few Pin-mins tucked away in some tacklebox, someplace. There were a few local baitshops that carried them. There was a zillion colors and patterns like a stripe and a dot, two stripes no dot, bunch of dots, solid with one dot. Anyway, they were only available in the late fall, before ice fishing started.
I'll see if I can spot any next time I got to a baitshop.
Jann's has all of the parts to make them yourself. In general, you get little spoon-shaped bodies, lay a hook in it and fill the cupped side with solder. Paint 'em up and go ice fishing.

I figured if anybody on this board knew about them it would be you.
I would LOVE to get my hands on some of those. I used to catch a ton of trout on them loaded with fly larva.
Let me know if you locate any, ok?....thanks a ton,
