Today’s trophy tales
Mason McArdle, 13, of Anoka, caught this 37-inch Northern, above, in 6 feet on Red Lake opening weekend using a jig. Earlier in the weekend, McArdle, fishing with his father, caught a 36-inch Northern.
Fishing from her dock on North Arm Bay on May 17, Michelle Morey needed a little help to reel in this 12-pound bowfin. Morey, using a ultralight rod and a small jig, had to call to her husband to come down to the dock and assist. Morey and her husband, Scott Bissen, finally managed to land it without the aid of a net.
Showing men how
Erikka Demuth, of Grand Rapids, caught this 26-inch walleye on opening weekend on Deer Lake in Itasca County near Effie. Demuth, fishing with her father and husband, used a white jig.
