Northland’s Nick Lindner runs through jigs for Rainy River walleyes.
BEMIDJI, Minn. (March 31, 2021) – The formula is simple: Rivers + Jigs = Spring Walleyes. Always has been. Always will be. And no tackle manufacturer is better poised to satisfy your jig needs than Northland Fishing Tackle. The largest jig manufacturer in North America, Northland offers dozens of styles suited for multispecies applications, with a distinct emphasis on walleyes.
The boys throw a myriad of jig styles, with success across the board, but a particularly productive model is Northland’s Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig. The innovative jig sports a keeled “DEEP-VEE” design that’s thick on top and thin on bottom to track straight and fall fast. The Deep-Vee Bucktail Jig also features holographic, 3D eyes that exude “match-the-hatch” realism. Dressed with bucktail on the pack end, this jig can be fished by itself or with your favorite type of live bait or plastics.
In 1975, a young Northwoods fishing guide named John Peterson started pouring jigs and tying tackle for his 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! Word spread like wildfire, the phone started ringing… and the Northland Fishing Tackle® brand was in hot demand! For 40 years now, John and the Northland® team have been designing, testing and perfecting an exclusive line of products that catch fish like no other brand on the market today. Manufactured in the heart of Minnesota’s finest fishing waters, Northland® is one of the country’s leading producers of premium quality jigs, live bait rigs, spinnerbaits and spoons for crappies, bluegills, perch, walleyes, bass, trout, northern pike and muskies.
ABOUT Bagley Bait Company

In late 2010, Jarmo Rapala and a group of investors bought Bagley Bait Company. As an admirer of Jim Bagley for his attention to quality and of his product ingenuity and innovation, Jarmo initiated significant changes in operations, enhanced production processes and quality control. Now in 2020, Northland® Fishing Tackle, along with Jarmo as its Chief Lure Designer, maintain the legacy of creating premium balsa crankbaits and topwater lures, as well as jigs and spoons for both freshwater and saltwater anglers.
