Eric Dyrhaug, Shakopee • 37-inch northern • Lake Pepin
While fishing with a friend from La Crescent, Dyrhaug used a swimbait to catch this northern pike, above, on Lake Pepin in mid-June.
Second time a charm
Chase Wicklund, 8, of Lino Lakes, caught and released this 4½ pound largemouth bass early Sunday afternoon while fishing near Emily, Minn. It was just the second time he had used a plastic worm.
George Seltz, of Bloomington, caught this 45-inch tiger muskie while fishing with a friend on Lake Minnetonka late last month.
