Big Ol' Fish - Nov 7Submitted: 11/07/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


- It seems like ice fishing season is right around the corner. But in the meantime, we still have some people having luck on the water this fall.

Matthew Vedder of St. Germain went fishing with his mom, Lisa and brother, Issac earlier this week. They were on Plum Lake in Vilas County, when to everyone's surprise, the 9 year old reeled in this 21 and a half inch smallmouth bass. Matthew was using a walleye sucker minnow for bait and released the fish after this great photo.

Brad Meyer of Cadott took a fall fishing trip to his family cabin in Ontario, Canada. They caught a ton of fish including this 29 inch trout. Brad tells us it was his 5 month old daughter's first trip up there, so it was a great memory, and the trout made a great meal.


And Eagle River's Katie Kuehlem (Key-lum) was out with her boyfriend in Three Lakes when she got a big bite. Katie fought with this 42 inch musky, but it tore up the sucker and swam off. Her boyfriend told her to put it back in the water, and the fish came right back and hit it again. The musky was Katie's biggest ever and she proved that persistence pays off.

WAUSAU - Pets add laughter, joy and tons of entertainment to the families they join. 

If those pets go missing it's an experience no family wants to go through. 

One woman in Wausau is making a difference for the pets and families in her community.

"I wanted to be the voice for the animals, because there aren't that many people that are like that out there," said Wausau Human Officer Ashlee Bishop.

Bishop started making a difference when she began working at the humane society when she was just fifteen years old. 

Last year she started the pet vaccine and micro-chipping event, to make sure animals in her hometown were healthy and safe.

"I have so many people that are thankful because their animals are home for the holidays," said Bishop.

The Humane Society says that one in three pets will get lost during its lifetime.

 The $10 microchips provided at the event increase the chances of lost pets being brought home.
