In 1975, a young northwoods fishing guide named John Peterson started pouring jigs and tying tackle for his guiding clients in a small remote cabin in northern Minnesota. The lures were innovative, made with high quality components, and most importantly were catching fish when no other baits were working! The word spread like wild fire, the phone started ringing... and the Northland Fishing Tackle® brand was in hot demand!
For over 25 years now, John and the Northland® Pro-Staff have been designing, testing and perfecting an exclusive line of products that catches fish like no other brand on the market today.
