Heddon Five Hook 00 Dowagiac Minnow



The # 00 Heddon Dowagiac Five Hook Minnow was first introduced by James Heddon & Son in 1912 and was made until around 1927. Heddon Dowagiac Minnows were wooden with glass eyes. They were advertised as having only a few catalogued colors and some special order colors have also been found.


Heddon #00 Dowagiac Minnow lures have been found in many colors! Some Heddon boxes have end labels or stamps with the color names spelled out. Others are simply marked with a code. Here is a color chart to help you discover what color your Heddon 00 Five Hook Minnow is.

I buy old lures like the Heddon # 00 Five Hook Dowagiac Minnow and vintage old lures from many, many other companies. If you have lures to sell, feel free to contact me. I pay more for old fishing lures than most other collectors out there. Be sure to get in touch with me if you would like a lure appraisal or if you have old lures to sell.
