Big Ol' Fish; Local Catches Plus One from a Former Newswatch 12 AnchorSubmitted: 05/24/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - Musky season kicks off tomorrow. In the meantime, there are plenty of other fish to be caught. We even have one from an old familiar face. Here's the latest edition of Big Ol' Fish.

Rhinelander's Emilie Coron went out fishing for the first time this summer with her husband Ryan. She brought in this 14 inch crappie and tons of other fish on Hanson Lake. Emilie was using minnows for bait and tells us she was thrilled because she caught twice as many as her husband.

Little Reese Frisque of Rhinelander nabbed this nice size black crappie. The 7 year old was using a leach on his secret fishing spot in the UP. Reese decided to toss the fish back, so it could grow some more and he was very proud of himself.

And remember this guy? Former Newswatch 12'er Matt Doyle was on vacation with his dad and brother in Baldwin, Michigan. He caught this huge steelhead fly fishing on the Pere Marquette river. Matt released it because they were in a national park. The seasoned fisherman caught about 15 fish in 2 days... not bad for a tv guy!
