On May 28th on Round Lake North of Brainerd former Minnesota Bowfin Club President Chuck Fields caught the Minnesota Bowfin Club Grand Championship winning 28 inch bowfin on a jig. This makes Chuck a two-time Minnesota Bowfin Club Grand Champion. His previous championship was 10 years ago in the year 2000.
Chuck was the only person to submit an entry this year. It could very well be that rumor spread of Chuck's 28" fish, so no one bothered entering a smaller fish. His 28" fish is the 5th biggest Grand Championship winner in the 12 years of the MBC Grand Championship competition.
