Nantucket Popper Lure Sculpture


Handmade Nantucket Popper (Saltwater) Lure sculpture by Ken Picou. A perennial favorite among East coast stripper fishermen. They claim to catch stripper “as big as VWs on it “. This mackerel blue version was sent to the artist by a Nantucket stripper guide. Take a look at the teeth marks on the small original lure. This lure probably looks pretty good in the mouth of a big stripper.

This eye catching sculpture is hand crafted out of Louisiana cypress. Each sculpture has as many as 15 coats of paint. The solid steel hooks are actual fishing hooks used in the Norwegian fishing industry. These pieces always bring an instant smile to all who see them. Perfect for the home, office, camp or restaurant. Fishermen love them as they invariably bring back fond memories of fishing with their fathers and grandfathers.
