Big Ol' Fish - Sept 5Submitted: 09/05/2013
Story By Newswatch 12 Sports


- 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.
