|NORTHERN PIKE - A powerful fighter
The northern's fighting spirit and abundance make him a more popular game fish each year. He should not be confused with the pickerel, which is practically non-existent in Minnesota. Minnesota's record northern weighed 45 lbs 12 oz.
The largemouth's upper jaw extends beyond his eye while the smallie's jaw does not. The record largemouth weighed 8 lbs 9.5 oz.
A two or three-pound smallmouth is a good fish with Minnesota' record standing at an even 8 lbs. The smallmouth requires moderately cold water with clean gravel or boulder bottom. You can fish top, deep or in the middle for smallmouth. Likes the little minnow plugs that move quickly through the rocks.
Great tasting fish to please the whole family. Great for hitting on fast moving minnows.
|BLUEGILL & PANFISH
Found in most of the lakes and streams of Minnesota, they are the favorite of the canoe pole set and also the small but growing group of fly-rod anglers who claim they are the greatest game fish that swims. Weed beds are a common hideout, but better still, look for a sunken brush pile or a fallen tree.
