- The holidays means more time to spend with the family and friends. Some folks may be using that time to hit some of the area lakes. As we can see in this week's Big Ol' Fish, there are some great memories being made.
Meet 12-year old Kaylyn Miller of Green Bay. She was recently fishing on Lake Nokomis, just outside of Tomahawk. She landed her first fish - this beautiful 19 inch walleye. This prize is going to be a great family story for years to come.
Todd Keely of Eagle River was fishing in St. Germain when he landed a 24 inch walleye. He was using a minnow on a tip up. The smile on Todd's face tells us this catch was part of a good night on the lake.
And 6-year old Hunter VanZile of Laona was with his dad and a guide in Forest County. hunter caught his very first crappie. 13 inches. Hunter used a minnow on a tip down for bait. I'm told Hunter loved the meal it provided even more than the catch itself.
TOWN OF PELICAN - Twisted metal and side-curtain air bags gave a pretty good sense of how bad a crash was Wednesday afternoon, but the Town of Pelican's deputy fire chief already knew he needed to work quickly.
"Time is of the essence," Norm Peterson said.
Peterson's department got the 911 page of a two-car crash on Highway 8 and River Bend Road, about two miles east of Rhinelander, around 12:30 p.m. The cars both ended up in the ditch on the north side of Highway 8, out of traffic. Police reduced traffic to one lane while medics treated the injured, but cars were able to still get through in both directions.
CRANDON - Leaders in four Northwoods counties hope a $38,633 grant will bring in almost 10 times that much money to the area. Forest, Langlade, Oneida and Vilas counties got a Joint Effort Marketing grant from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism Wednesday.
The counties will use the money to promote the natural resources, history, recreation, and local cultural sites along the Nicolet Wolf River Scenic Byway.The byway runs 145 miles through the four counties.
