Today’s trophy tales

Knut Robinson, Honolulu • 34-inch northern • Lake Minnetonka

While visiting his grandfather Gary Gandrud, who lives in Bloomington, Knut Robinson, 12, caught this northern with the help of Larry Hanson, right, on Lake Minnetonka.

Six-lunker outing 

Danielle Karner, of Mounds View, caught this 32-inch northern pike on a lake near Bigfork in Itasca County. It was one of six Northerns over 30 inches she caught and released in an afternoon of fishing.

 

Nice recovery

 

Michael McKinney, of St. Paul, caught this nearly 10-pound carp on Minnehaha Creek earlier this month. He made the catch moments after being unable to lure a 40-inch muskie idling under a bridge.
