- 15 year old Max Semrow of Eagle River was fishing recently on a private lake in Oneida County. While using a rubber worm on a hook, he got a strike. When he reeled in his prize, he landed this 21 inch Large mouth bass - the biggest one he's ever caught. It weighed 5 pounds. After the picture the fish was released.

Olivia Woolf of Manitowish Waters was fishing with her mom and brother, when she had quite a day. While fishing on a nearby lake, Olivia caught this beautiful sunfish. Not to be outdone, she also hauled in a 10 inch large mouth bass. I'm told she was using special green eyed night crawlers on her Barbie fishing poll. Both were released after a quick picture.


And Tomahawk's Toni Russo caught this 10 1/2 inch Blue Gill on the Elk River near Phillips. She was using a night crawler for bait. This one proved to be part of a very good meal.
