Jessica Ann Tollander, 12, of Shoreview caught and released this 47-inch muskie last month while fishing with her dad on Lake of the Woods. Though another summer of fishing is history, memories of the fish caught — or lost — will be cherished for years to come.

Though another summer of fishing is history, memories of the fish caught — or lost — will be cherished for years to come. Next year, long-held angling traditions will be renewed. Until then, on this, our final fishing page of the season, we share some of the catches that made summer 2014 one to remember. Starting next week, our Wednesday Outdoors page will return with coverage of hunting, conservation, natural resources, outdoor recreation — and fishing. Thanks to the hundreds of people who submitted photos and fish tales this season.

DOUG SMITH


NO NET, NO PROBLEM


Sully Scherber, 11, of Buffalo caught this 24-inch walleye with a leech on a Lindy rig in 18 feet of water at his Grandpa Glen’s on Star Lake near Dent, Minn. At first Sully thought he had a big northern, then discovered it was a lunker walleye. He also discovered his little sisters had removed the landing net from the boat.


AN ARMFUL




Jessica Ann Tollander, 12, of Shoreview caught and released this 47-inch muskie last month while fishing with her dad on Lake of the Woods. Dad said he missed the muskie with the net on his first attempt, but then was able to land the fish.
 

PANFISH BONANZA


Isabella Maliske, 7, of Mandan, N.D., went fishing for her first time with her grandpa and grandma and a fishing guide to a Bemidji-area lake and hit pay dirt with panfish. Isabella caught 32 fish in four hours. Her best was this trophy 10-inch bluegill.

SUBURBAN BASS


Reid Brettschneider, 12, of Lake- ville, finds plenty of good fishing right in town. He caught and released this 20-inch largemouth bass this summer.

FIRST MUSKIE


Kelsey Johnson of Bloomington recently caught this 52-inch muskie on Lake Waconia. It was her first time fishing for muskies, and she caught the monster on only her eighth cast.
