In case you haven’t heard, the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame has just announced its 2013 inductees. Going in as “Legendary Angler” is California’s iconic bass fisherman, Mike Folkestad. Earlier in the year, Mike was inducted into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame, but this recognition places him among anglers of all species. Only one of two anglers honored for 2013, here’s what the HOF’s bio said in this week’s press release.

Not only is his recognition a fine stamp on a wonderful fishing career, it’s yet another testament to the quality of bass fishermen developed in the Golden State.

Congratulations, Mike!

Congrats again, Mike! It is well deserved.

I didn’t think so much of it at the time, but when they were pretty young, a couple of my sons got to ride with Mike and me on some trips. Over time, those outings have increased in value…

Congrats! That is such an honor and Mike is very deserving of the honors!

Congrats Mike! What a great honor and affiliation for you to be in not one but two hall of fames! Unbelievable is all I have to say… 2013 is going to be a great year! Cant wait to see you at the next tournament!
