Eagle Scout Creates Lure Libraries at Wisconsin Lakes

Posted 2024-05-20  by  Stephanie Mallory

Anglers can borrow, donate, or keep the fishing lures housed in wooden structures

Wisconsin anglers fishing in the Hayward area or at White Fish Lake have the opportunity to borrow, donate, or keep fishing lures housed in one of three new lure libraries that were created by a young Eagle Scout.

According to, Eagle Scout Ethan Constantine, who designed and planned the lure libraries, lives in Illinois but spends a lot of time in Wisconsin.

“I go up to my grandparent’s cabin in Wisconsin every summer and I thought it would be a great place because fishing is really big there,” Constantine said.

Terry Peterson Fishing Foundation, created in honor of a local angler who passed away in 2022, funds the lure libraries.

Matt Peterson, vice president of the Terry Peterson Fishing Foundation and son of its namesake, hopes these libraries will make fishing more accessible.

“Not every kid has a parent that has a fishing boat or has time to go fishing,” Peterson said. “So, they come to places like this to fish and if they can come over here and have a stocked-up lure library to use, they don’t have to worry about baits.”
