  3. This awesome dinosaur was caught while catfishing in the morning in Le Sueur. At 27 1/2 inches in length, and weighing at 8 pounds, this thing put up a good struggle. ...more After releasing it, my friend caught one too (just an inch shorter). Nothing feels better than catching your first sturgeon, especially with a friend. I can't wait to catch it's bigger cousin sometime!

  4. I caught this 27 1/2 incher while fishing for springtime crappie with a slip bobber set-up. At 10 pounds, this thing took 9 minutes to land on my ultralight rod ...more (thank you Ugly Stik!). He was safely released after the photo op. Hopefully, someone else will have the chance to tussle with Garfield now.

    Channel Catfish with a Berkley Powerbait Honey Worm


One of the biggest fishing nuts in Bloomington, I live and breathe fishing. Rivers, lakes, creeks, no body of water is too out of the ordinary ...more for me. Whenever I can, I can get out there almost everyday and try as many lure and rig combinations as I can (I love the Lindy rig)! When I'm not fishing, I love to work with video editing software, as well as Adobe Flash and Photoshop, play videogames, work out, and travel around and see everything Minnesota has to offer. Even if I don't catch a thing, I'm just happy to be doing what I love doing most.
