Vanishing Paradise: Andy and Joe with catch of the day

Vanishing Paradise Pro-Staff Director Andy McDaniels and SportingDog Adventures’ Jeff Fuller with the catch of the day.

There’s no shortage of lakes near our headquarters so it’s only fitting that we post a Gone Fishin’ sign on our WhatchamaBlog at least once this summer. While we grab our favorite fishing gear and bait, we hope you enjoy a few shots of our friends and their trophies.

Our friends at Vanishing Paradise work while they play. The organization educates anglers (and hunters) on the need to restore Louisiana’s waterfowl and fishing habitat by reconnecting the Mississippi River with its wetlands. Only our Action Shirt can keep up with members whenever they need to stay cool, comfortable and protected from the sun doing what they love.

Psst… It’s no coincidence that some of the best fishing holes in the Midwest are also near our Duluth Trading stores. Duluth, Minnesota was recently named the best outdoor city in the U.S. by Outdoor Magazine, and Port Washington, Wisconsin is home to Lake Michigan’s deepest port and ranks among the top Wisconsin king salmon charter fishing ports.
