Name: Martin St-Louis
Location: Kingston, ON
Favourite thing about fishing: I live at the east end of the magnificent Lake Ontario and have a part time Fishing Charter (Friend with a Boat). My favorite species to target are Chinook Salmons. The great thing about the east end of the lake is that you can also catch Coho, Steelhead, lake trout, walleye, pike, bass... you actually never know what will bite your lures.
Favourite Lure: In 2017 my best Northern King lure was MAG Mixed Veggie. Man! Did I get big salmons and steelheads with this lure. For pike if you never tried Brass and Flame you missed something.

Name: Curtis Schriever
Location: Campbell River, BC
Bio: I split my time between Alberta and BC and am constantly on the hunt for trophy fish. I grew up using Len Thompson lures for trophy Pike and Lake Trout in the cold waters of northern Alberta. I now run a tackle shop at Pacific Playgrounds in Black Creek, BC and am a part-time fishing guide.
Favourite thing about fishing: I am fortunate to have fished all over western Canada. What I love most about fishing is providing others with new experiences and hopefully getting them into a fish of a lifetime. For me, those moments are priceless. I love to teach others on successful strategies for targeting Chinook salmon on our west coast. NK Lures are a huge part of my success on the water.
Favourite Lure: In 2018 my best Northern King lure was a toss-up between the MAG Homeland Security Glow and the MAG Glowing Green Goblin. I managed to land multiple 20-25lb Spring Salmon with those two lures. For Coho, the 4D Blue and Green Monkey Puke are the answer!

Favourite thing about fishing: Being a tournament angler I love the competitive nature of tournaments. Competing against other anglers and the Fish. Whether it be a Bass, Northern Pike or Salmon Tournament, nothing feels better then having success and seeing your name on that leaderboard at days end.
Favourite Len Thompson/Northern King: Yellow/Red 5 of diamonds/ Northern King MAG Purple Thunder
Best fishing tip for beginners: My best tip for beginners getting into the sport would be to look for and join a local fish and game club chapter. Fish and game clubs have a good mix of beginners to seasoned tournament anglers and are a great source of information for the new anglers coming in and networking with fellow anglers.

Favourite thing about fishing: Its all about spending time with family and friends - build those memories, connect and reconnect with your kids as the grow up and change in front of your eyes. Sometimes the best and deepest conversations you will ever have will be on the water and in the truck on the ride.
Favourite Len Thompson/Northern King: Cant beat the Len Thompson 5 of diamonds and for me the Watermelon Northern King is the bomb
Best fishing tip for beginners: Watch "Fishing the Wild West" and "Fishful Thinking" for all around tips - research your lake of interest before you go out to have target areas to go to such as sunken shoals, points, breaks and underwater bowls...these structures hold fish --- keep your hooks sharp!!
