August 10, 2017 11:34 PM

Ted Capra, a member of the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame, was laid to rest Thursday in New Brighton.

Members of the fishing community around the country attended the service to say goodbye.


The Fishing Hall of Fame said Capra took home more than 25 first place wins. Capra also left a mark on the fishing industry with his popular Shore Lunch brand of breading.

"It's the end of an era," Tony Capra, Ted Capra's son, said. "An icon of the fishing industry is gone."

More than 30 pro anglers attended Capra's funeral in New Brighton, bringing their boats along. Capra's ashes were also taken out in a fishing boat.
