- The holidays means more time to spend with the family and friends. Some folks may be using that time to hit some of the area lakes. As we can see in this week's Big Ol' Fish, there are some great memories being made.Meet 12-year old Kaylyn Miller of Green Bay. She was recently fishing on Lake Nokomis, just outside of Tomahawk. She landed her first fish - this beautiful 19 inch walleye. This prize is going to be a great family story for years to come.Todd Keely of Eagle River was fishing in St. Germain when he landed a 24 inch walleye. He was using a minnow on a tip up. The smile on Todd's face tells us this catch was part of a good night on the lake.
And 6-year old Hunter VanZile of Laona was with his dad and a guide in Forest County. hunter caught his very first crappie. 13 inches. Hunter used a minnow on a tip down for bait. I'm told Hunter loved the meal it provided even more than the catch itself.
