Excursions along the Jersey Shore, in northern Michigan and charter adventures throughout the Western Hemisphere have resulted in numerous trophy catches.

But that was before Gordie Howe suffered a major stroke last October, leaving him unable to walk let alone cast a line.

Since then, Mr. Hockey underwent controversial stem-cell treatments in Mexico setting him on a miraculous road to recovery. Gordie is doing so much better now that last week Mark and his brother, Murray, took their dad fishing for catfish on a Texas ranch.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
