The "Jumbo" Minnow Traps

The "Jumbo" or "Min-O-Lure" minnow traps were made by the Sallisaw Glass Company in Sallisaw, OK, and the Johnson Glass Company in Mansfield, AR. They have either 1 or 3 funnels and are about 1 1/2 gallons in size.The single funnel traps seem to have been made in Sallisaw, and the three-funnel traps were made by Johnson Glass. They were made in the late '50s and possibly early '60s. Some of the single funnel traps have been found in boxes labeled as a Frabill Minnow Trap, so these were likely made for Frabill in Sallisaw. They are all included here in the same category because they seem to have been made from the same type of jar mold.
