Big Ol' Fish - Sept 19Submitted: 09/19/2013
Story By Joe Dufek

Big Ol' Fish - Sept 19
- Tim Guth of Pelican Lake was fishing with his daughter Jacklin before she left for college recently. While muskie fishing on Pelican Lake, Tim hauled in this 47 1/2 inch beauty, using a top-raider. After the picture, the fish was released.

Antigo's John Chriske was fishing on Legend Lake when he got a strike. He reeled in this huge 19 1/4 inch large mouth bass. It weighed 4 pounds. John wife says it was also great at supper.

Michael Weinmann of Virginia Beach, Virginia went on his first fishing trip with his father in law on the Eagle River chain.


After catching a 5 pound large mouth bass earlier in the day, Michael and his father in law decided to try one more time. But the engine died about 120 feet away from shore. As they were trolling to shore, Michael decided to try his luck near a fallen tree. There he landed his first muskie - a 37-incher. Congratulations on turning what could have been a rough day of fishing, into a memorable one.

MERRILL - Organizers broke ground on the Northwoods Veterans Post in Merrill Saturday.

It will serve veterans, boy, girl and cub scouts as well as the community.

Northwoods Veterans Post marketing Chairperson Tracy Jopek lost her son in 2006 when his truck hit a bomb while he was serving oversees in Iraq.

"I'd like to think if he was the one that came home, that he would have a place to go. It's important to not just talk the talk about supporting the military but to actually do it," said Jopek.

Saturday, Jopek and other organizers broke ground on the Northwoods Veterans Post in Merrill.

"The Northwoods Veterans Post offers a place that we can bring in resources," said Jopek.

Those resources were never offered at the more than 100-year-old Merrill VFW building.

ST. GERMAIN - Looking around Kathy Lass's restaurant in St. Germain, it's pretty obvious why she and her husband named it the Wolf Pack Café 19 years ago. 

"We had a lot of artwork that had wolves on it, so it was a no-brainer," said Lass. "We took the pictures off the walls of our house and hung them in the café and decided the Wolf Pack Café was it."

That theme will carry over to the café's new sign.
