Among the people whose work will be featured are Bob, Charles and Joey Jobes, three well-known brothers in the lure industry who each run their own lure shop.

“Working on the water, making lures, all of us, that’s all we did,” Charles Jobes told WJZ. “That’s all we really know.”

The siblings learned the trade from their father, legendary captain Harry Jobes.

“My dad passed away three years ago and you just can’t forget what we did at his store,” Joey Jobes said. “The shop is gone and you think about it all the time when you’re making lures.”

Harry Jobes’ legacy lives on to this day, not only through the memorabilia of his sons, but also at the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum, where his work and likeness are on display.
