Trophy tales: BWCA trip leads to big northern
- August 13, 2013 - 8:24 PM
(As told by George’s dad, Tim)
“This was George’s first trip into the BWCA. He was casting a silver spoon on Day 2 when the beast attacked. While George fought the fish, I slowly paddled the canoe into shallow water to land the fish because we didn’t have a landing net. The fish was photographed and released. This is the largest fish that George has ever caught.”
