Al’s Goldfish Lure Company has been around since 1952 but has expanded globally under the ownership of Jeff and Amanda DeBuigne, who purchased the company in 2018. With 100 percent American-made products, the selection of lures available from the company cover anglers for panfish, trout, salmon, bass, walleye, pike or muskie, with baits to use while casting, trolling or jigging. Al’s lures are made of solid marine brass, are plated by jewelry-plater, and are hand-painted.
About Al’s Goldfish Lure Company
The company was launched in 1952 with a single pioneering spoon lure, known as Stuart’s Goldfish, named after founder Al Stuart. The company’s flagship lure was renamed Al’s Goldfish in 1954, and by 1973 the popularity of the Goldfish lure soared to nearly one million lures sold in a year. Along the way, other popular lures, such as the Forty-Niner and Helgy, and hook bonnet lure accessories were added to the company’s list of American-made products. In 2015 the line was expanded to include the Saltwater Goldfish series. In 2022, present owners Jeff and Mandy DeBuigne celebrated the 70-year anniversary of the Goldfish lure.
