45" Northern


Robert Thompson

Plymouth MN

The last day of our trip we found a new bay that looked good. We had about 1/2 hour left of a 5 day trip before we had to get ready to fly out. My fishing partner had a large northern follow on a red/white/gold spoon. So I changed to a red/white/gold #5 Mepps. Soon after I watched the fish hit the lure. After 4 nice runs we had the fish and safely released her. After numerous fishing trips, it is the largest Northern I have ever caught!NOTE: - State listed below should be ONTARIO.
