Big Ol' Fish - Jan 23 Submitted: 01/23/2014
- Brian Carpenter of Rhinelander recently caught his biggest Northern Pike of the season at an area lake. Using a 5" sucker minnow for bait, Brian caught this 26-incher. He's keeping this beauty for a great meal. St. Germain's Dan English took his wife and grandchildren out on Lake Carroll. Dan hauled in this HUGE 30 1/2 inch Northern. It weighed 5 pounds. He was using a shiner on a tip-up. This catch is also being prepared for an upcoming supper. And 16-year old Katie Koppa is a student at Lakeland. While fishing with her boyfriend and dad at an area lake, she landed her first Northern Pike - 19 inches. I'm told this has been converted into Fish patties for the next big meal.
