Today’s trophy tales

Steph Lundorff, Roseville • 19-inch smallmouth bass • Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

Lundorff, above, landed this catch when it bit on a 4-inch wacky-rigged Senko. The catch, the scenery and the hat made for a memorable birthday for Lundorff.

FIRST TIME'S A CHARM

Max Bortnem, 15, of Minnetrista, caught a 47-inch muskie — his first muskie — on Lake of the Woods in a single cast with a white and silver spinnerbait.

TEAMWORK

Hayden Magle, left, Jesse Smith, center, and Sarah Warner, of Ramsey, displayed the 50-pound, 66-inch sturgeon caught from the bank of the St. Croix River in May using a worm. Garon Smith, who helped reel it in, took the photo.
