Gopher Tackle Manufacturing Company
The Gopher Tackle Mfg. factory is located in Cuyuna, MN, once the Iron Ore hub of the state. Hundreds of lakes and mining pits dot the area with the Mississippi River flowing through the area.

Our founder, Conrad (Connie) Peterson was customer engineer for a major computer company, after his hitch in the U.S.A.F.. His hobby was always fishing. Then tournaments sprang up in the 70's, his fishing knowledge and ability helped to develop many new concepts in lure design to gain the winning edge. The tooling, casting and painting to the finished packaged product is done right here in our plant. The superior quality is due to our full in house ability.
