- Not all of the neat fishing trips produce record catches. Sometimes, the more pleasurable times on the lake bring home some smaller catches.
But that doesn't mean it isn't just as rewarding.
Kim McLean of Wabeno had quite a day prch fishing at an area lake near Wabeno. The one on display was 10 1/2 inches. He was using a wiggler on a lig for bait. He says nothing beats fishing with his buddies in the Northwoods. I'm told when the day was done, he had a small cooler full of simialr sized perch.
Eagle River fishing guide Gary Myshak caught this 12 1/4 inch crappie on Columbus Lake near Sugar Camp. After the picture, this one was released to fight another day.
And for the bigger prize category this week, take a look at J.D. Brahm's prize from back in January. The Northern measured 36 inches. It was caught on a private lake in Vilas County. He was using a shiner on a tip up. J.D. says it was mighty tasty.
RHINELANDER - People in Rhinelander will be able to cast their November election ballots starting on Friday. It's the earliest people in Wisconsin have ever been able to vote.
The absentee ballots are stacked and ready for Friday at the Rhinelander City Clerk's office. To make the early voting process go as smoothly as possible, you will need to come prepared.
"When you come in make sure that you're registered. That is important. Make sure you're registered in the city if you're coming into us," said Clerk Valerie Foley.
Registering is easy; all you need is a photo ID and proof of residence. The registration form takes a couple of minutes, and then you will be able to fill out an election ballot.
"I think it is going to be a very busy day. I think people are pretty interested in the issues. And I think a lot of them would like to get and make sure they can vote if they're not certain they're going to make it to the polls in November or not," said Foley.
The clerk's office has already sent out about 200 ballots to people who have requested them.
Now, it is preparing for the early voter in-person rush.
If you are unsure whether you are registered to vote or where to go for early voting, the clerk's office suggests voters visit myvote.wi.gov for more information.
