DULUTH, MN. (Northern News Now) - Minnesota has such a rich fishing history, the state has its own fishing hall of fame.

In the central Minnesota town of Little Falls sits a shrine to legends who pioneered, taught and grew the sport over the last century.

Only 61 people have been inducted.

Northern News Now’s Dan Wolfe recently spent time with Marine General’s Russ Francisco, and found he’s a fishing hall of famer who rarely fishes.
