Eufaula: home to the largest fishing lure manufacturer in the world

Posted: Updated:
EUFAULA, Ala. -

Eufaula is considered the biggest fishing lure manufacturer in the world. The city has that title in large part because of a 70,000 square foot facility home to Southern Plastics. They manufacture the most fishing lures in the world and supply lures to companies such as Bass Pro Shops, Zoom, Strike King and Pradco.

We take you inside for a tour and show you how the process of how a fishing lure is made. Check out the video above for the exclusive tour.

The process for manufacturing a single fishing lure takes about 2 minutes. The facility employs about 100 people and has been open for over 40 years.
