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


- Katie Kuehlem (Kee-lum) of Eagle River was fishing in northern Vilas County earlier this month. Using a leech and a jig, she reeled in this HUGE 25 inch walleye. It's the biggest one she's ever caught by about 10 inches. I'm told it was tough to say which was better, catching the fish - or the meal afterward.

Check out the tiger musky Phil Ingram of Lac du Flambeau was able to catch. The 42-incher was caught in Upper Sugar Camp. He was fishing for bass with a 3-inch shad rap. After the picture, the fish was released.

And 2 1/2 year old Ryleigh Bentley of Scholfield went fishing with her dad on Lake Wausau back in July. She had a worm on her Barbie fishing pole, complete with Dora the Explorer bobbers, she got a strike.


After her dad, set the hook, Ryleigh used every muscle to collect this beautiful 13 inch perch. This one was also the centerpiece of a memorable dinner.
