World's Largest Fishing Lure

This is a nice park area. Great for fishing at the pond, especially for kids. The road is now paved, too.

World's Largest Fishing Lure

The largest fishing lure in the world will be officially unveiled outdoors on June 1, 2019, in Lacombe (I got a sneak peak at a special VIP event). It was built to celebrate the 90th birthday of the Thompson-Pallister Bait Co. Ltd, and is a replica of the company's popular 5 of Diamonds Len Thompson Lure. It's 28 feet long, and will include a 16-foot-hook. A whopper!
