Vintage minnow bucket


Recommended Posts

According to Ebay, these are now 'Vintage' in other words out of production, at least this brand is.  84 year old friend of the family gave it to me, kind of cool, I'm going to polish it up and set it somewhere in the house.  They aren't rare, you can get them (used) on Ebay for $25 or so.

The horror of catching and putting minnows in a bucket😢. They need to be set free! Free the Minnows!

                Neat Quill!

  You made me dig this old goodie out. Was my grandpas. Has little rings soldered on sides for a lanyard. The lid is just about an inch or two deep and slides in. You are making me want to scrub mine up. :) . it has just been sitting on top of the china cabinet. I am afraid cleaning might destroy what graphics (old Pal) that is still on there?

That's pretty neat, I'd maybe test a little spot with some Brasso to see what effect it has, but like Gavin says, maybe it is best left untouched.  Did you do a search on Old Pal minnow buckets?

I think this one on Ebay is a match, here's the item #  352464837224 

      There are a few on there. Made in the 50s.     Think I will keep grandpas :)    Some in pretty good shape even.

We went to the Jacobs Cave flea market today, saw quite a few there, but everything is priced similar to Ebay. What really surprised me is the old glass jar minnow traps. Most are $75 or better and one new in box from the fifties was $200. We have like 3 of the buckets as BH pictured and 2 Old Pal galvanized worm containers. One of them is the style you clip on your belt for wade fishing. I bet that makes some of the fly guys cringe. We did find a couple of deals on reels, I bought 2 Calcuttas and a Bantam at a very good price.
