This is my fishing Hall of Fame. A list of the biggest fish I’ve caught (so far):

40.5" Muskie

Muskie

My biggest fish yet. A 40.5″ pulled out of Lost Land Lake near Hayward, WI. It was caught in October, 2008 using a large sucker and quick strike rig. Read the story…



36" Northern Pike

36" Northern Pike

Northern Pike

I landed this 11 lb-4 oz Northern Pike out of a small lake in 2002 using a Coca-cola colored rattlin’ Rapala. The lake is off the Gunflint Trail in Northern Minnesota and known for its Northerns. Just the day before, someone caught a 23-lb Northern, which is why Ken and I decided to go to the lake. We’ve only been back once and Ken caught one we estimated at 9 lbs. We plan to go back in the future. Read the story…

24" Walleye

24" Walleye

Walleye

I caught my biggest walleye in Walleye Alley on Poplar Lake on the Gunflint Trail in July, 2008. The lure was a white pearl super fluke. It’s a funny story how I caught it. It was measured at 24″.



21" Smallmouth Bass

21" Smallmouth Bass

Smallmouth Bass

Ken and I pulled this pair out of Poplar Lake off the Gunflint Trail in June, 2007. Both were about 21″ and estimated around 5 lbs (we didn’t have a scale). I hate to admit it, but Ken’s (on the left) was actually a touch (about 1/4″) bigger. I caught mine using a 6″ purple plastic Zoom lizard. I think they stopped selling that color because I can’t find it anywhere anymore. I can’t remember for sure, but I think Ken caught his on a little Rapala. Read the story…



19.75″ Largemouth Bass

Largemouth Bass

On a whim, I joined my neighbor Mark on an outing on a Friday morning. It turned out to be the best decision I ever made. I caught three fish that either equaled or bettered my previous personal best bucketmouth and almost landed a fourth. My best of the day was this one at 19.75″. Read the story…
