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


- The temperatures are beging to climb. So is the fishing on many of the lakes and rivers in the Northwoods.

Here's this week's Big Ol' Fish.

Over the 4th of July weekend, Jeff Kent of Iola had quite a battle for this Musky on the Sugar Camp chain. While he was fishing for crappies using a minow, Jeff landed with 39 incher. Because he was using 6 pound test line, it took him a half an hour to haul it in. After the picture, the fish was released.


Check out the Large Bouth Bass Harshaw's Mike Powers hauled in on Tuesday. He was fishing with his father-in-law Dick Stubing. While he was using a spinner bait on an Oneida County lake, it struck within moments of the bait hitting the water. After a big swirl, the fish took off into the weeds. The prize reeled in measured 20 inches - the biggest he's ever caught. In fact, this bad boy is getting mounted.

For the first time category, 8-year old Alexius Manci of Stevens Point was fishing with her family and friends in Vilas County over the holiday weekend. She used ever muscle in her body to haul in this beautiful 14 inch small mouth bass. The fish was her first keep. Congrats Alexius.

And finally, Ryan Zenoni of Sussex, WI had a catch to remember. This 23" 7 pound small mouth bass was caught in Presque Isle. He was using a night crawler for bait. Now that's quite a memory making catch.
