Fish Tales: Early-morning paddle interrupted by exciting battle

  • Updated: July 9, 2013 - 8:02 PM

“I really enjoy fishing the lakes in and around Minneapolis and canoe these local lakes with friends who also like to catch and release largemouth bass. Tube jigs and wacky worms have been particularly effective, and we’ve safely released hundreds of nice ones already this season. This 21-inch bass took a tube jig, and made a few spectacular jumps before coming to hand. It’s hard to beat the peacefulness of paddling and fishing on a calm lake in the early morning, interrupted only by some exciting fishing action. We are certainly fortunate to have so many wonderful lakes all around the Twin Cities area.”
