A 'real' sportsman in HL Sportsmen's fishing contest

The Howard Lake Sportsmen's annual fishing contest brings all kinds of anglers, but that day also beheld a real sportsman.

According to Joe's Sport Shop, a man and his son were fishing shortly before the contest began. They hooked a rather hefty northern. They bought it into Joe's Sport Shop to be weighed. It tipped the scale at 8 pounds, 2 ounces.

The boy's father wouldn't let him enter the catch in the fishing contest reminding his son that they caught the northern 15 minutes too early.

Joe's Sport Shop was unable to get the angler's name, but decided that he was a "real" sportsman.

The winners in the contest were: grand prize, a King Crow deluxe fish house, 6 1/2 feet by 12 feet on wheels ­ Lowell Schrupp; first prize, a power ice auger ­ Mike Johnson; second prize, a portable fish house ­ Troy Gille; and third prize, a portable fish house ­ Marge Dahlberg.

Howard Lake Sportsmen's Club appreciates all the businesses who donated the many prizes. They are: Streich Construction, MSI Insurance, Howard Lake-Waverly Herald, Joe's Sport Shop, Mr. Rooter, Durdahl Construction.
