Ken Price with Walleye

A few weeks ago we wrote about how fishing can be so darn unpredictable and cited several examples where anglers had some exciting battles with big fish.

We noted that several state records or giant catches were made by anglers not targeting that particular species or who were novice fishermen.

Since then, several anglers have written to share their unique catches that involved some luck as well as skill.

But, is luck really required in fishing? I posed that to a professional angler a few years back.

“If luck plays any role in fishing, it’s because you put yourself in position to be lucky,” he said. “You made the decision to make the right cast, with the right lure in the right place.”

Apparently, Ken Price of Granger did just that.
