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.
