Right before the Minnesota fishing opener, we launched a contest, asking for pictures of the “trophies” Surly Nation members catch with a Surly spoon fishing lure. The winner would get a custom-stocked cooler, full of Surly favorites.
Well, after receiving a lot of great pictures, showing everything from monstrous muskies to photoshopped sea monsters and everything in between, we’ve chosen a winner, or winners in the case of Ryan Nelson and friends who sent a few pics of the fish they caught with Surly fishing lures up in the Snowbank Loop in the Boundary Waters (bonus for the Darkness t-shirt). Congrats, guys. Enjoy planning your next fishing trip over a cooler of cold Surly.
