- Brian Carpenter of Rhinelander recently caught his biggest Northern Pike of the season at an area lake. Using a 5" sucker minnow for bait, Brian caught this 26-incher. He's keeping this beauty for a great meal.
St. Germain's Dan English took his wife and grandchildren out on Lake Carroll. Dan hauled in this HUGE 30 1/2 inch Northern. It weighed 5 pounds. He was using a shiner on a tip-up. This catch is also being prepared for an upcoming supper.
And 16-year old Katie Koppa is a student at Lakeland. While fishing with her boyfriend and dad at an area lake, she landed her first Northern Pike - 19 inches. I'm told this has been converted into Fish patties for the next big meal.
RHINELANDER - Usually when we think of people fighting world hunger, collecting food donations and other community service events come to mind. But a group of kids from Rhinelander are fighting world hunger a different way.
On Sunday, 14 people, including kids in grades five through 12 and some of their parents, set out on a weeklong 250 mile bike ride to raise money. They're all part of Rhinelander's Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Pastor Tammy Barthels says this is a great way for kids to learn about world hunger.
