- 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.
THREE LAKES - One teenager decided to spend a day giving back to the Three Lakes community 18-year-old Maxwell Blanchard lives in L.A but always makes it back to Three Lakes during the summer.
Blanchard learned how to water ski and wakeboard in Three Lakes at five years old.
On Sunday he spent the day giving free water skiing and wakeboarding lessons.
"[To] get someone new out there to ski or at least get them attempting. It's always fun when you get the kids who are a little nervous out there and a little shaky, then they get out there and they love it," said Blanchard.
Blanchard said every year the water sports community chooses a day to give back and participate in "International Pass the Handle Day."
Kylee Swendson decided to help Blanchard this year with the lessons.
"It's great for everybody to get a chance to learn especially people who don't get the opportunity every day," said Swendson.
