St. Croix’s Linval Joseph Promotes Fishing In Minnesota With Gov. Mark Dayton on Saturday
TOP DOGS: St. Croix native Linval Joseph (left) poses with Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton as part of a tourism promotional event for the 10,000 lakes state in the midwest United States.
MINNEAPOLIS — Like most Minnesotans, Linval Joseph spent his Saturday morning fishing one of that state’s 10,000 lakes.
But unlike most Minnesotans, Joseph hails from a place with no lakes, but maybe a few still active streams — St. Croix.
And also unlike most Minnesotans, Joseph fished Mille Lacs Lake with the state’s top elected public official, Gov. Mark Dayton, according to a post on the Minnesota Vikings website.
Joseph is a star defensive player for the Vikings in the National Football League (NFL).
Joseph and Dayton, along with Minnesota youth, fished Mille Lacs Lakes Saturday morning to promote the lake’s status after it was recently named the best bass fishing lake in the country by Bassmaster Magazine.
