Today’s trophy tales

Carter Haas, Zimmerman • 36-inch northern pike • Portage Lake

About two months ago, Carter Haas, 13, got a fishing boat, which was handed down from his great-grandfather, Wayne Murphey of Eagan. Carter and his 92-year-old great-grandfather went fishing last week, and Carter caught a northern using a Daredevle lure.

Hauled it in

Olive Wendt, 7, of Columbus, caught this crappie at her grandparents’ lake home on Prairie Lake, south of Floodwood, Minn., in St. Louis County.
