Scott Wahl of Brooklyn Park with a 39.5-inch northern he caught and released on Namakan Lake.

“Our family has been going on an annual fishing trip for about 20 years to Canada, but the last three years we have stayed on the Ash River and fished both Kabetogama and Namakan lakes. This year, we went a week earlier to try to have better luck, but we worried about the late ice-out. The first night I caught this 39.5-inch Northern Pike on Namakan Lake using 10-pound test line, an 8-inch leader with a jig and white double tail. It’s the biggest fish I’ve ever caught. Nice to say it was caught in my home state, where we photographed it and then released it for another lucky angler.’’

ONE BIG CRAPPIE

Taj Hunter of Minneapolis was fishing with his Papa on Big Marine Lake using an X-Rap Rapala lure when Taj thought he had hooked a bass. Papa shouted “Taj, that’s a crappie!” It measured 14 inches long.

NICE FISH

Fishing with his grandpa and brother on Leech Lake, 9-year-old Zack Enebak of Prior Lake caught and released this 23-inch walleye.
