Story By Newswatch 12 Sports


- It looks like Old Man Winter is finally taking a break until next winter. Some area catch and release anglers found plenty of luck.

Randy Robinson of Harshaw had plenty of action last week on the Peshtigo River. While fishing with a friend, Randy reeled in this 30" 11 pound walleye. he was using a husky jerk bait on a Rapala. It's the biggest one he's ever caught. After the picture, the fish was released.

Minocqua's Samanatha Gillich broke out a new fishing rod and reel in grand fashion. While fishing with her boyfriend, Samantha landed this 29inch walleye. It was caught on the Fox River in DePere. She was using a joined Shad Rap. This one was also released to fight another day.


And a blast from the past, take a look at the small mouth bass caught by Rhinelander's Brandon Michie. It was caught last fall on Oneida Lake in Harshaw. He was using a jig and rubber worm. After a quick photo op, it was back to the river for this catch.

NORTHWOODS - Children went back to school across the Northwoods Tuesday. That's why it's important to make sure you're prepared for anything.

Emergency workers say it's important to have a plan in place for all possible emergency situations. That plan should include emergency contacts, safe meeting locations, and emergency kits in homes and cars. Officials say taking time to plan and practice is crucial.

"Look at things before it happens," says Dawn Robinson, Oneida County Emergency Management Program Assistant. "Make sure your family, your loved ones, your neighbors, make sure everyone has a plan and practice those plans. That way when something does happen, it becomes more, that you know what to do, so be prepared as much as possible, and practice."

Part of being prepared is communication and knowing who to contact. Officials encourage parents to make sure that schools have up-to-date emergency contact information, especially for small children.
