2019 05 27 Largestlure

Lacombe is on the map as Len Thompson Pond calls home to the Worlds Largest Lure!


Weighing almost 26,000 pounds and measuring about 40 feet in length, the latest lure to come out of the Thompson-Pallister Bait Company here in Lacombe won't be suitable for any standard rod, but will instead be put on display at the Len Thompson Fish Pond to celebrate the companies 90th year in business.

The lure was crafted by Comet Welding in partnership with Echo Energy, the City of Lacombe, and the Lacombe Fish and Game Association, and revealed during a special sneak peek on Friday, May 24th, with special guests that included MP Blaine Calkins, and Minister of Environment and Parks Jason Nixon.

The idea came from the President of Thompson-Pallister Bait Co. Brad Pallister, who's great grandfather Len Thompson invented the lure that's become a staple of angler's word wide.
