Big Ol' Fish - Sept 5
- Mark Landin of Stevens Point was on a family get together at their cabin in Vilas County last month. While taking a nice sunset cruise at an area lake, Mark reeled in this 23 inch walleye. It's the biggest one he's ever caught. He was using a fathead minnow on a jig head. The next time the family sees this prize, it will be on the wall at the cabin.

9-year old Logan Wade of Montgomery, IL was fishing near his grandpa's house on Lake Little Bearskin in Harshaw when he landed his first northern. It was caught with a worm and no bobber. After the picture, the fish was released.

And 3-year old Malia Szews of Sugar Camp went fishing with her Princess fishing pole, when she got a strike.


Using a night crawler, she hauled in this HUGE 20 inch Largemouth bass. It weighed over 5 pounds. Not only is it the biggest one she's ever caught, it's the biggest one the family has ever caught. This one is getting mounted to relive the memory for years to come.

RHINELANDER - DNA evidence from a pair of sweatpants could link a Northwoods man to a violent sexual assault. Prosecutors offered up some of that evidence against Richard Loppnow in Oneida County court on Wednesday morning.

The victim accuses Loppnow, 38, of forcing her into several sexual activities twice on his property south of Eagle River back on October 28 and 29th of 2017.  

The criminal complaint shows the first assault happened in a building on Loppnow's property.  Testimony revealed claims that Loppnow held a gun to the victim's head.

"[Loppnow was] advising that she could either be humiliated or shot in the head," Oneida County Detective Sergeant Ryan Rossing testified.  "She chose to be humiliated due to not wanting to be harmed."

After later moving to a mobile home trailer on the property, the victim claims Loppnow pointed a sawed-off shotgun or handgun to her head and gave her several options.
