Our outdoors feature returns with a smile this week. Parker Dietz caught this northern last month on Lake Perrault in Ontario, Canada. The trophy pike was 40-inches long and weighed more than 17 pounds. Dietz is the grandson of John and Jerry Huffman and Karl and Diane Dietz of rural Gaylord. Others in Dietz’s fishing party included: Joel Kuphal and Marc Messner of Gaylord; his father Mark Dietz of Ham Lake; Mike Pautsch of Andover; and Jim Mackenthun of Glencoe.
