Big Ol' Fish - Aug 16Submitted: 08/16/2013
Story By Newswatch 12 Sports


- Thousands of anglers are hitting the lakes and rivers in the Northwoods.

Most are adults. But in tonight's "Big Ol' Fish," we check out why the fishing has been mere child's play.

Lake Tomahawk's James Ebert says the fishing in the Northwoods has been great. While fishing on Two Sisters Lake just south of Lake Tomahawk, James reeled in this nice 13 inch smallmouth bass. The 12 year old was using a simple nightcrawler for bait. After the picture, the fish was released.

11-year old Henry Patterson of Middleton also caught a beautiful small mouth bass. While using a twister bait he hauled in this 18 inch 7 pounder. It was caught on Clear Lake in Minocqua.


And check out this prize. Rhinelander's Matthew Rudolph was fish was fishing with his dad for crappies. He got a strike on the Wisconsin River near Newbolt. They realized it was a musky, but didn't have a net. After fighting for 45 minutes, they finally hauled in a 45 incvh, 25 pound monster. It was the 14-year old's first musky. After the picture, the fish was released to fight another day.
