The First Week of Fishing Season Brought Success
THE NORTHWOODS - There have been mixed results out on the water for the first week of fishing season. But locals are happy to see the ice melting and are getting out there to give it a try.

Crandon's Ryan Alloway went out fishing with his friend Blake on opening weekend. The 13 year old was very excited to bring in this 20 inch bass. Ryan used a Carolina rig with a Berkeley power worm and is looking forward to catching an even bigger one next time.

Also from Crandon, Andy Madl caught this 33 inch 14.5 pound walleye. This monster was reeled in on the Fox River and was the biggest ever for Andy. He used a crank bait and released it after capturing the moment.

And Newswatch 12's own Joe Dufek tried his luck crappie fishing for the first time in over 20 years. Joe was out on the Three Lakes chain with fishing guide Gary Myshak. After about an hour, Joe reeled in his very first crappie. It was 11.5 inches and he was using crappie minnows for bait. As you can tell from the smile, Joe was thrilled with his catch.
