(May 11, 2016 - Flppin, AR)  Ranger Boats congratulates Frankie's Marine on their recent induction into the Fishing Hall of Fame of Minnesota. The longtime Ranger dealer joins the ranks of "Legendary Organizations." The enshrinement recognizes Frankie's Marine for their positive impact on Minnesota's sport fishing industry.
 
"Frankie's has been a mainstay for anglers in Minnesota for decades," said Bart Schad, vice president of sales and marketing for Ranger Boats. "Their years of hard work and dedication to serving customers have helped generations of anglers spend time on the Minnesota waters. They are certainly deserving of this honor and recognition." 
 
What started as a stand-alone hardware store has transformed into one of the highest volume Ranger Boats dealers in the world. Over the last 40 years, the family-owned business has served the Chisago City area's needs for boats, motors, trailers, engine service, bait and tackle.
 
The Fishing Hall of Fame of Minnesota annually recognizes three individuals and two groups of organizations that have worked to preserve, protect and enhance Minnesota's sport fishing heritage. Nominations are pared down to the top 10 before the current Hall members vote for the finalists. The Minnesota Fishing Museum joined Frankie's Marine as the other institution enshrined as a "Legendary Organization."
