Does anyone know what species this decoy is targeting?
Possibly who made it and from what area?
Also about what time period is it from?

Any information would be helpful because I have been searching all over the web and can't find out too much information.

This decoy is 6" long from the tip of the lips to the tip of the tail. The width of the decoy (the body of the fish itself) is 1.5" wide or thick. Including the fish's side fins, the decoy measures 2 2/3" wide. The decoy is one of the tallest ones I have and measures about 3.5" tall (including dorsal fin). The total weight of the decoy is 7.6 ounces.

    it is a decoy made to look like a crappy,as the species are contigious to the 48 states and canada the makers could be anyone clearly a gifted carver though,the target species again could be vast from musky to northern pike ,pikerel or walleye.as for age thats hard to gues but i would hazzard a guess at pre ww2.
