When Detroit Lions All-Pro Frank Ragnow isn’t on the gridiron, you’ll probably catch him fishing on the Detroit River or Lake St. Clair.

A Minnesota native and lifelong angler, Ragnow said he loves fishing in Michigan.

“I love fighting the fish. I love the adventure. And I love to get away,” said Ragnow, who also enjoys cooking up a fresh-caught catch with his fiancé, Lucy Rogers.

It’s that love of the outdoors that led Ragnow to partner with the Michigan Wildlife Council. He said he looks forward to spreading the word about the many ways hunters and anglers boost Michigan’s economy and support our wildlife and natural resources.
