I was born and raised in Minnesota, the proverbial “Land of 10,000 Lakes.” My family cabin was on Sturgeon Lake, named after the massive bottom-feeders that anglers love to bring up from the deeps. You’d think, with a pedigree such as mine, that I would have a wall full of beautiful bass frozen forever in mid-leap. That I’d be able to fillet a walleye with one hand tied behind my back and my eyes closed.
