I’ve been using Northern King Spoons for salmon and trout as long as I can remember for one reason—when the fish are slurping spoons, my NK Magnums and NK 28s standard sizes—whack and stack with the best of them. I got some “advance copies of some of the “new for ’23 patterns” late last season and put them to use at the tag end of the season and for my early season fishing here in Indiana. Most of the newbies are either new super-glow patterns, UV—or both. So far the NK 28 Jerry Lee Copper has been a stud both for late ’22 steelheads and early ’23 cohos. I’m sure as the season pro-gresses both sizes and all of the new patterns will have their share of winning days. Check them out at www.NKLures.com and order some from their “USA store” on the website. Northern Kings are made in Canada so using the USA store eliminates delays in shipping when crossing the border. Many US online and retail outlets sell Northern Kings, as well.
