Fuller’s Tackle Shop served hunting and fishing enthusiasts for over 60 years. Anglers could have their catch officially weighed at the shop and entered in the annual Booster fishing contest. Hundreds of fish were entered every year and the anglers who caught the largest in each category were awarded Fuller’s gift certificates. The shop published the famous Golden Book every spring and it was filled with all of the entries from the year before, along with advertisements for area resorts and other businesses. For years Fuller’s storefront window included a large case of ice where the fish brought in for weighing that day could be displayed. No trip up town was complete without checking the window to see if any “lunkers” were on ice. Below is a sampling of Golden Book covers through the years.
