    Manufactured in Poland to the very highest standards, you only have to fish with a SALMO lure once to be convinced of how special they are.

    The powerful combination of experienced fish biologist designers, and some of the most demanding field testers in the world, results in a range of lures that catch when others fail.

    Although each Salmo lure has been designed to meet specific objectives, the unquestionable effectiveness and attraction enables many of the lures to be used for a wide variety of predators, using many different fishing techniques.

    If you want the best results… insist on SALMO.

    Leech Lake Fishing Task Force

    Through countless hours of effort by the Leech Lake Fishing Task Force, in conjunction with the Leech Lake Band and the Minnesota DNR, they are realizing their goal of bringing back a strong and sustainable walleye fishery on the lake. It began in 2005 with a cormorant control plan and an aggressive stocking program. By 2010, over 100 million walleye fry had been introduced into Leech Lake. The result of this effort has been a return to quality walleye fishing that is as good as it has ever been, with Leech Lake once again being one of the hottest walleye lakes in Minnesota. The Leech Lake Walleye Tournament will showcase this walleye fishery recovery.
