Big Ol' Fish - July 19Submitted: 07/19/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


- Lots of fishermen are taking advantage of summer vacations to hit the water. Many of them are catching their biggest fish of the season.

Arbor Vitae's Zach Allen went out fishing with his cousin and landed this 21 inch smallmouth bass. He was on a lake north of Minocqua and used a mini-mite for bait. This beauty was the biggest Zach had ever caught and it was released after capturing the moment.

Jeff Wayne of Summit Lake went fishing with his wife in Green Bay. He was hoping for walleye, but ended up with this 30 inch, 10 pound catfish. Jeff used a crawler harness and after a few pictures, released this big ol fish.


There's also lots of nice fishing up in the UP. JoAnn Krusick of Watersmeet was thrilled to bring in this 27 and a half inch walleye. The monster fish was caught on a jig with a minnow. It was her biggest fish to date. As you can see from JoAnn's smile, it's a memory that will last a lifetime.

9-year old Trevor Burby won a musky rod this spring and saved up his chores money to buy a reel for it. During his families yearly vacation to Conover he went musky fishing with his stepdad Tim. After a half hour on upper Buckatabon Lake, Trevor got a bite on his bulldawg. With some help from Tim, he netted this 45 inch musky! Trevor plans to have it mounted... and his first musky turned out to be bigger than any his parents have ever caught.

ST. GERMAIN - A school bus doesn't feature a lot of amenities. Seats, windows, and that's about it. But a company out of St. Germain thinks buses, and other big vehicles, make the perfect kitchens.

Caged Crow Fabrication is owned by Josh Romaker. He moved to the Northwoods about three years ago. Around the same time a woman in Madison approached him to help refurbish an old camper. He decided to make it into a food truck instead.

"We took on the challenge and that first build was featured on US Today and some magazines and our phone just started ringing. We've got them in Denver, Salt Lake City, New Jersey," said Romaker.

That was just the beginning for Romaker's company, Caged Crow Fabrication in St. Germain. They now specialize in food trucks of all kinds.

"If a customer wants a food truck that looks like a barn or a steam train or a school bus conversion, we really stick to the unique food truck builds," said Romaker.

The 1982 bus that Caged Crow Fabrication is working on now will be complete in a little over a month. The team made up of just a few workers has one rule- they never build the same thing twice. And they take their time.

"We have a sign on the wall here that says 'quality over quantity'. I think our reputation right now is really based on the attention to detail and I think we want to keep that up," said Romaker.
