Drake Young, 10, Plymouth and his 38-inch northern caught on Lake Hadley. (As told by dad, Rick) �Drake has caught numerous bass, but this 38-inch northern is the biggest fish he has ever caught. He was very excited. Drake caught it using a Rapala Tail Dancer. It was his second northern of the day, but much larger than the first. We nicknamed the fish Norris the Northern before we released it.��

It was his second northern of the day, but much larger than the first. We nicknamed the fish Norris the Northern before we released it."

And these other whoppers:

BIG BASS Nick Michel, 13, of Waconia caught and released this 20-inch largemouth bass on Lake Margaret on the Gull Lake chain. After a long day of slow bass fishing, Nick caught this on his last cast with a Texas rig. As soon as it hit, he told his dad to get the net "because this one has shoulders."

BEST FISHING EVER Nancy Weidenfeller of Minnetonka caught this 38-inch northern on Lake St. Joseph in northwestern Ontario, using a silver and gold spoon. She also landed a 28-inch walleye. "This was the best fishing I have ever experienced!" she said.
