Sharing Your Stories: Mike and Jim Britt

August 28, 2018


I have a fishing story I’d like to quickly share. Jim and I were at Keeper Lake one evening fishing a stretch of shoreline for walleyes. I put on a Banjo Minnow (a rubbery minnow look-alike lure that I fished on a jig instead of a live minnow) and cast out. I got a hit and the Banjo Minnow was pulled off the jig hook. We continued to fish and an hour later I hooked and landed a 1 1/2 lb. walleye. And guess what was inside its mouth? My Banjo Minnow! The fishing at Keeper Lake is always fantastic, it kind of made me wonder how many of the fish I’m catching along a given shoreline are repeat offenders? Probably more than I think! Needless to say, we had a great time fishing that evening and I got my lure back!




We love hearing from our friends about their fishing trips. A big thanks to Mike for sharing his story with us! If you are interested in sharing your story, please email it to
