History Mystery from the Ephraim Historical Foundation

Do you recognize the men in this photo from the mid-20th century? How about the fish? 

According to DNR fisheries biologist Nick Legler, “The medium-sized lineup of fish on the top are definitely bass. A couple of the fish almost look like largemouth bass, but I’ll guess they’re probably all smallmouth. And, the biggest three on the far right are definitely northern pike. If I had to guess on the smaller fish lined up on the bottom, I’ll say possibly smaller bass (smallmouth?) or maybe small trout or perch. Based on the photo, it’s tough to say with certainty.”
