As a child growing up south of St. Louis, I can remember several summer vacations spent in a cabin in Minnesota. 

My father, who was raised in nearby Wisconsin, loved fishing northern lakes, specifically for walleye and northern pike. While he would spend more than 50 years of his life in Missouri, he never took to the gamefish found here, whether catfish, bass, or crappie, preferring the fish of his youth.
