Get Hooked

Minnesota offers some of the country's best freshwater fishing, including a wide range of colossal lakesscenic streams, and the mighty Mississippi. Roaming these waters are walleye, bass, trout, panfish, northern pike, muskies and more — in every shape and size imaginable. 

Your heart will skip a beat when a denizen of the deep strikes your lure. Hang on. Half the fun is reeling 'em in, but the other half is telling the stories of fearsome trophies in the fallwhoppers in the winter, or the one that got away.
