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.
