Possible MN State Record???

I don't know if this fin that was caught by Jana Olson was weighed or not, but it was obviously huge.  I don't have any details on the catch.

Black & Decker Tackle Wrecker Strikes Again

I was pre-fishing for my next tournament on Rush Lake near Ottertail when I had a big dogfish hit my Aruku Shad.  Can you tell?  Can't say I've ever caught a bowfin on a rattlebait before.  It was raining so I didn't get a picture of the fish.  I would say it was about 26.5 inches long.  It put up a tremendous fight and got all tangled in the net.

It was raining so I didn't get a picture of the fish.

Happy 4th of July!

This nice fin was caught last summer by Nate Dykes in the Brainerd area.  I had forgotten I had the photo.  Better late than never I guess.
