Welcome back

Larry Merwin recently moved back to Minnesota and hadn’t been fishing in over 40 years before his brother-in-law took him out last week. Merwin landed this 25-inch northern on Lake Owasso using a spin cast rig using a Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow before a storm chased them to shore.

Catch and release

Jim Lundorff, of Grand Marais, guided by Scott Steinbach of Grand Marais, caught and released this 26-inch post-spawn walleye on a Cook County border lake two weekends ago.
