Big Ol ' Fish - Nov 29Submitted: 11/29/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


THE NORTHWOODS - Many people head to the Northwoods to vacation during the holidays. Milwaukee's Aaron Fiscal came up to try his hand at musky fishing. With help from Gary's Guide Service, Aaron caught not one, but three muskies. He boated one on his first cast of the day and the largest was 45 inches. With an experience like that, chances are he'll be back.

Craig Gallek came all the way from New York City. It was his first visit to the Northwoods and he also caught 3 muskies on the trip with Gary's Guide Service. His biggest was 46 inches and all fish were released.

And sometimes guides themselves take advantage of the great fishing around the state. Jeff Van Remortel of Minocqua was in Sheboygan county when he reeled in this gorgeous brown trout. Jeff was fishing with his buddy Jon who also caught one. The trout was 28 inches and released after this great photo.
