Big Ol' Fish - Nov 21Submitted: 11/21/2013
Story By Joe Dufek


- Eagle River's Gary Myshak had quite a time fishing with his brother and another angler George Roman earlier this month. While fishing on Two Sisters Lake, Gary hauled in this nice 47 inch musky. He was casting with a Shad-leen or crank bait in four feet of water. After the picture, the fish was released.

Diane Krupa of Boulder Junction was fishing with her fiance in a Vilas County area lake when she had the most exciting 30 seconds of her fishing life. In that time she caught not one, but two 45 inch muskies. She was using suckers for bait. Both of these beauties were also released to fight another day.


And in a blast from the past, 14 year old Jack Mittelsteadt was fishing with his dad and grandfather on Wabigoon Lake in Ontario during the summer. Using a bucktail spinner bait, Jack reeled in his first muskie. 48 inches. The prize was also put back in the lake, but not before a quick photo op.

WESTON - The state of Wisconsin no longer bans the possession or purchase of switchblades.

Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) signed a bill lifting the decades-long ban on switchblades on Saturday at a 
National Rifle Association and Wisconsin FORCE annual convention in Weston.

Walker said this gives people another option for protection, and it also can help first responders at accidents.

"Say at a crash to take someone out of a harness or seat belt or other things like that," Walker said. "And again, the bottom line is as it is with firearms, the people you are worried about are already possessing these, law abiding citizens should at least have access to that in the state of Wisconsin."

This new law applies only to people who are legally eligible to own a gun.

"The same provisions apply," Walker said. "If someone's prohibited from possessing a firearm, say they're a felon, they are not able to possess a firearm the same way with a knife under the senses. But with a law abiding citizen, it just makes sense that if they're following the law, they're looking to protect themselves and their families, this gives them one more tool to do that as well as first responders."

Under this new bill people can also carry concealed knives of any length without a concealed carry license.

FORCE, or Firearm Owners, Ranges, Clubs and Educators, is an association chartered by the NRA.
