LAST CALL Zach Hartley of Minneapolis caught this 38-inch northern on Cedar Lake in Wright County. "I was catching largemouth bass in about 8-feet of water off a weed line, using a jig and fake minnow with 8-pound test line. We were leaving in 10 minutes, and I thought a huge bass or walleye hit my line. I was surprised when I got this to the boat. We took photos and released it.''
