Big Ol' FishSubmitted: 08/09/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


THE NORTHWOODS - Back here in the Northwoods there are still plenty of people enjoying great fishing. We even have a catch from one of our own. It's time to check out this week's Big Ol Fish.

Little Blaiden Emerson of Wausau was fishing with his family and using his favorite spiderman fishing pole. The 5 year old was so excited to hook this bass. The fish jumped out of the water twice as Blaiden was reeling it in. His dad had the net ready, and it was a good thing because as soon as he pulled it out of the water, the line broke. Blaiden says his 18 inch bass was an awesome catch.

Michael Stephenson was vacationing with his family and visiting his big sis Lauren. He went out with his dad and local guide, Lon Millard on Big Sand Lake near Phelps. He couldn't belive his eyes when he brought in this 41 inch musky. He was using wacky worms for bait, and they worked, cause this was his biggest fish ever.

And our own seasoned fisherman, Matt Benz, went fishing with his dad last Sunday. They were on a spring fed pond at a secret fishing spot in Langlade County. Matt caught several big fish that day but this was the biggest brown trout of his life. He was using a 4 pound test line on a short rod and reeled in this 20 and a quarter incher. As you can see from his smile, Matt was very proud of this trout.

MADISON - A bill that would prohibit people form bothering hunters in the woods goes before the Assembly.

Approval would send the bill on to Governor Scott Walker.

The Senate passed the bill on a voice vote last month.

The measure's Republican authors say concerns about hunter harassment have grown since the Wolf Patrol.

That group of animal rights activists followed and filmed wolf hunters in Wisconsin and Montana in 2014.

The bill would expand the definition of interference with a hunter.

It would include remaining in a hunter's sight and photo-graphing or confronting a hunter more than twice...with the intention to interfere with the hunter.
