Spinner bait is the ticket for bass, pike — even walleyes?


It’s Memorial Day weekend, the official kickoff of the summer season.

It’s also time to remember the men and women who are serving and who have ever served in the U.S. military. The older I get the more I appreciate all of you and I thank you for keeping guard and putting your lives on the line for us. I now realize we have to protect what we have, and without the willingness of those in the service, we would be in a lot worse shape.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
