Today’s trophy tales
Anthony Baker, Grand Forks, N.D. • 65-inch lake sturgeon • Rainy River
Anthony, above, caught and released this 82-pound lake sturgeon on the Rainy River near the Royal Dutchman Resort in Baudette, Minn., on May 3. Using a catfish rod with a glob of crawlers and half of a sucker minnow, Baker needed 20 minutes to get it in the boat.
On his last cast of the day, 10-year old Brock Poppe, of Blaine, fishing with his father and brother, caught this personal-best 29-inch, 10-pound walleye on Sauk Lake. The catch came about eight hours after his previous best, a 25½-inch walleye.
A little fishing before school
While on break from college, Sierra Zielinski, of Mound, and her father went fishing on Lake Minnetonka. She caught this largemouth bass on Harrison Bay.
