Most recently, the Thompson-Pallister Bait Co. Ltd. acquired Northern King Lures in 2016, a well known trolling spoon brand originally from Rochester, New York.
Len Thompson’s versatile spoons continue to dominate the marketplace across the Canadian Prairies and Arctic. Perhaps best known as a Northern Pike lure, they have held world records in Lake Trout and Arctic Grayling as well as numerous provincial records in Walleye, Trout and other game fish.
Approximately 50 million lures have been produced since 1929 and between Len Thompson and Northern King, more than half a million spoons are manufactured each year. Proudly made in Lacombe, Alberta, Canada.
