Midway Bait and Tackle

Osceola, Indiana

The painting of the Bait and Tackle shop portrays the small bait store on the corner of CR 16 and Ash Road at the St. Joseph/Elkhart County Line overlooking the St. Joseph River in Osceola, Indiana.

Due to a recent auto accident, the store, which had been there for decades was destroyed by fire. Just recently the remains of the store have been removed.

This painting portrays an earlier time, as I removed some of the metal buildings. The fisherman and his dog are off to an early start in the morning, for a few hours of fishing.  They stopped at the bait shop to pick up some earth worms,as everyone refers to.  He must be that “Early Bird”.

The painting was selected to be part of an exhibit at the Midwest Museum of American Art, located in Elkhart, Indiana from October through the middle of December, 2020.

Here the links to the other lures I have painted: Paw Paw Lippy Joe, Carter’s Best Ever, Flat Fish Frog and Pikie Minnow.

Here are links to salmon flies I have painted: Blue Doctor, black and white hookblack hook and small fly.

Related to fishing, here are two other paintings you may be interested in.
