Big Ol' Fish - Mar 20
- Rhinelander's Tony Sattler drove 8 hours overnight to get in some serious fishing on Lake Erie. The trip was well worth it. Just an hour after getting there, Tony reeled in this beautiful walleye 31-inch walleye. It weighed nearly 12 pounds. He was using a buck shot rattler in 28' depth. This prize is getting mounted.

Bill Beyer of Mercer had an incredible opening morning of the sturgeon spearing season on Lake Winnebago. Using an old fashion multicolored tin toy top as a decoy, Bill hauled in this HUGE 72.2 inch Sturgeon. It weighed 97.2 pounds. It's his biggest one ever. This memory will last a lifetime.


And 7-year old Tucker Leman of Lake Tomahawk (on the left) and his 10-year old brother Colton took first prize in the kids division for the Lake Tomahawk Family Jamboree. This 37 1/2 inch Northern weighed 18 pounds. Tucker says if Colton wasn't there, he would not have been able to reel in the beast. Great team-work guys.

ONEIDA COUNTY - Prosecutors think an Oneida County Sheriff's deputy used her job to steal cash, but she could get those charges dropped if she completes a diversion agreement with the court.

Sarah Gardner, 41, also known as Sarah Welcenbach, faces two felony misconduct charges in Oneida County.

According to the criminal complaint, prosecutors believe she paid herself about $1200 from a cash box her office used for drug investigations.

The diversion agreement says Gardner must pay the money back to the Sheriff's Office and complete a six-week accounting course at Nicolet College.

If she does those things, the state can ask to dismiss the case.

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that loosens fish farm regulations.

Under the Republican bill, fish farms no longer need permits to discharge material into a wetland if the wetland was created for fish farming. Natural water bodies can serve as fish farms and farms wouldn't need permits to construct or enlarge artificial water bodies connected to a navigable waterway. New permit conditions will be prohibited unless needed to meet water quality standards.
