Very Appealing 6” Pink Salmon Ice Spear Fishing Decoy with its Original Box by Carl Christiansen, Newberry, Michigan, circa early 2000s. Christiansen is a self-taught carving and artist who is well documented in Frank Baron’s Commercial Fish Decoys. The Carl Christiansen Lure Company was formed in 1979 and once Christiansen realized that many of his fish decoys were being purchased by collectors, he started making wooden boxes. Later he switched to standard cardboard boxes with appealing ice fishing designs as an additional feature for the collecting community. This Decoy measures 6” in length and the Original Box measures 6 ¼” in length. Both Items are in Excellent Original Condition and Christiansen’s “CC” Mark is on the Bottom of the Fish.
