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 - Our nation celebrates its independence in three days. People in the Northwoods are planning how they want to view fireworks. Will they buy their own, or will they see a community show?

Peter Anderson has been a fireworks organizer for the city of Eagle River for several years.

"We've been doing it for a long time," he said. "We hire a fireworks company to come in and do it every year for us. It's just kind of a tradition to celebrate the 4th of July."

Many communities in the Northwoods put on firework displays. And those displays can cost quite a bit of money.

"Right around $9000 is what we spend in Eagle River," said Anderson. "It all goes right towards the fireworks. Everything else is volunteer; we get the land donated to us, we get everybody's time donated to us, and all of the money goes directly towards the fireworks."

Anderson says a big reason his community does a display is so people can celebrate on the fourth safely.

"I'm on the fire department; that's one of the reasons why I got involved with it was to have a nice big community firework display so that people don't have to do their own displays," said Anderson.
