Each Sunday this summer, the News Tribune's Outdoors section will publish a list of big fish caught in our region. No, it isn't a contest. It's just a listing of many of the largest fish caught throughout the Northland. To get your fish listed:

  • Email your information to outdoors@duluthnews.com

  • Call the News Tribune at (218) 723-5300 or (800) 456-8282. Be sure to list the angler's name, hometown, the body of water where the fish was caught, nearest town, the resort you stayed at (if applicable) and the length or weight of the fish.

We want your fish photos!

We'd also like to see photographs of you and your big fish. We'll publish some each Sunday and post more in our seasonal web gallery. Here how to send us your photos:

Email them to outdoors@duluthnews.com. Use jpg (jpeg) format and be sure to include all pertinent information.

A reminder that the News Tribune, in an effort to promote responsible handling of fish that are released, will not run photos of people with fish that are being mishandled under generally accepted guidelines. Do not hold fish vertically with one hand. Support the fish with two hands. Keep your hands entirely away from the eyes and gills. And keep those photos coming!
