Big Ol' Fish - July 5Submitted: 07/05/2013
Story By Newswatch 12 Sports


- 8-year old Owen John Dahl of Manbitowish Waters went fishing with his grandpa recently. They were fishing on a private lake near Rhinelander. Using a rubber worm, john got a strike. When he was done reeling, he caught this 20 inch large mouth bass. I'm told he's quite the little fisherman - he's already hauled in a 21 incher. After the picture, the fish was released.

Tomahawk's Adam Russo was fishing with his cousin at a river near Phillips when he hauled the biggest musky he's ever had. It measured 42 inches. He was using a Suick musky bait. After the picture, the fish was released to fight another day.


Kayla Dickison of Rhinelander shows us it isn't just the boys having all the fun. On a family outing on father's day, she nabbed the biggest bass of the day. 19-5 inch large mouth. It was caught using a plastic worm just north of Minocqua. Kayla is keeping it to hang on the wall.

And 11-year old Brenna Yakel of Conover was fishing with mom, dad, and grandpa last weekend on the Eagle River chain. Using a leach in about 6 feet of water, she caught a 12 inch large mouth bass. Although it wasn't a keeper, the memory sure is.
