Big Ol' Fish - Oct 3Submitted: 10/03/2013

Big Ol' Fish - Oct 3
- 6-year old Anthony Gaetano (Guh-Tah-no) of Land O' Lakes was fishing with his grandpa on Forest Lake recently. While using a crank bait over weeds in 12 feet of water, he got a strike. He hauled in this huge 26 inch Northern - the biggest fish he's ever caught. He also caught a 17 inch bass. Both fish were released to keep on swimming.

Dylan Eibisch (I-Bish) of Crystal Lake, IL had quite a time fishing at his grandfather's cabin on Lake Alic in Tomahawk. The 12-year old reeled this beautiful 18.5 inch small mouth bass. He was using a homemade buzz bait. This prize was also released after a quick photo opt.


And 12-year old Noah Miller and his father Brett were musky fishing in Lake of the Woods in Canada. Noah landed this 43-incher, using spinner bait on 10 pound test line. Dad proudly tells us Noah did all the work himself, except the netting. This is a great story for the family of the one that didn't get away.

TOMAHAWK - The near freezing temperatures will help snowmobile racers compete at the 2nd Annual Winter Hatchet Nationals Ice Oval Snowmobile Race at the Tomahawk Speedway.

Last year during the race, temperatures reached far above freezing causing track co-owner Andrew Bartelt to plan ahead.

"I actually covered this entire speedway with tents and stuff like that to block the UV rays. This year we were preemptive and we put a UV blocker in the water which came along with blue coloring so it looks pretty," said Bartelt.

EAGLE RIVER - Blink and you might miss him.  Patrik Sandell tends to understate things, but flying around on a frozen lake, sometimes at 100 miles per hour, is simply "normal" for him.

"I've been flying out here," Sandell said.  "For me, this is how I grew up."

Sandell learned to drive race cars under similar conditions as a youngster in Sweden.  The 35-year-old joined Subaru Rally Team USA and wanted to bring his ice driving experience to the states.  The racing style means drifting a car at high speeds through a curvy ice track.
