Monica Wright, Eden Prairie • 32.5-inch tiger muskie • Lake Nokomis

Just after saying it had been a boring day (May 22) on the water, Wright, above, got a hit. Trolling with a purple Rapala and using her new pink Pflueger President reel on 10 lbs. mono line, Wright fought through two runs for her biggest catch ever.


Brittany Wilson of Otsego was bass fishing with a bright neon yellow artificial lure when she landed this healthy 24-inch walleye.



Paul Baker of Minnetristra caught this 42-inch northern on Saganaga Lake (Cook County). Fishing with an ultralight with 4” test line, Baker was reeling in a small walleye when the northern hit it. He released both fish.
