The Star Tribune’s weekly Fishing Page debuts today, once again acting as a mirror of the fishing season each Wednesday through Labor Day. The photos come from readers, so you are encouraged to e-mail pictures of your catch to

The page will feature anyone landing a fish on shore, from a dock or in a boat. Images of lunkers are great, but the page celebrates the joy of catching fish of any size or type. Minnesota fish dominate the page, but anglers young and old who travel to other destinations also can make submissions. The fish must have been caught this year.

Submissions must include text to identify the angler; describe weight and/or length of the fish, if possible; and say when, where and how the fish was caught. You can also post photos on Trophy Tales at Happy fishing!

Above: Ten-year old Danny Lutz, of Woodbury, caught a 29-inch walleye on opening day on Lake Mille Lacs. Lutz, fishing with his father Andrew, made the catch just off Izatys Resort with a bobber and leech. He reeled it in by himself. An hour later he caught a 22-inch walleye.
