- 10 year old Severin Krook of Pelican Lake last month had one of the biggest days in four years of fishing. While fishing with his grandpa on the Wolf River, he landed this big largemouth bass. 20 inches long - the biggest one he's ever caught. He was using a minnow for bait. The next stop for this beauty, is his bedroom wall.
Eagle River's Robert Jacobs has been hitting all of the lakes in the Northwoods hard for muskie. But on this trip, he hauled in a nice northern. Using a Hardhead lure, he reeled in this 45 inch prize. After the picture, the fish was released.
And check out the beauty little June Avery of Virginia caught while visiting her grandparents in Post Lake. As you can see, it's almost has big as the 8-year old. Although we're not sure the length, but it's definitely the biggest one she's ever caught. Grandpa helped June release the fish so it can keep on swimming.
RHINELANDER - A snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments. "We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson. Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's. "We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson.
"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent. The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants. "For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent. "We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth. Now Hanson's will only use sturdier and solid greenhouses so that collapses don't become a pattern.
