Fish tales: Send us your photos

Kaylee Kern of Champlin proudly displays her 9-ounce sunfish caught in 12 feet of water on Lake Ida using a nightcrawler July 28, 2012. The Echo Press newspaper will be featuring your best catch photos throughout the summer.

Did you reel in that huge muskie? Did that largemouth bass give you trouble? Did your child catch their first fish?

We know you snapped a photo of the big event, so it's time to "weigh in" and share your fish tale.

The Echo Press will be publishing photos and stories of fish caught on lakes in Douglas County and the surrounding area, so make sure we don't miss yours.

Send us a photo of your fish, and don't skimp on the details. Include the name, age, hometown, phone number, type of fish, bait used and where the fish was caught. If there's a good story behind the catch, give us the details.

You can e-mail the photos to, complete with all the information and your fish tale, but be sure to send us the photo in a large format.

You can also send us the information by mail at Sports Department, Echo Press, 225 7th Ave. East, Alexandria, 56308.

Hopefully, we'll be able to print our first pictures on May 24.

Happy fishing!
