THE NORTHWOODS - Anglers look forward to the fishing season opener all winter long and the wait's almost over. Just one more week to go.

Till then we're still hearing some great ice fishing stories plus, one from a Florida vacation. Here's this week's Big Ol Fish.

Greta Boulter of Lake Tomahawk decided to enjoy the beautiful weather on Easter by getting out on Minocqua Lake. She was crappie fishing, but hauled in this 26 inch walleye. Greta used a teardrop jig and wax worm on a 4 pound line. She says it was the biggest fish she's ever caught, but she had to throw it back.

Crandon's Ryon Alloway took a fishing trip to Lake Gogebic in the UP. The 14 year old was with his friends Gus and Jon when he hooked this 15 inch yellow perch. Ryon caught it on a green teeter pig hunter jig in 26 feet of water. He added a filter to this picture and was very pleased with his catch.

And Newswatch 12's very own Melissa Constanzer grew up in a fishing family. She took a trip with her parents earlier this month to Florida and they had lots of luck. Her dad caught this 22 inch drum while they were fishing in the mangroves behind Marco Island.

Her mom got this 16 inch permit. It put up a good fight and made her work for it. Both fish were on the dinner plate that night and helped make for a memorable vacation.

WAUSAU - Candidates for the 7th Congressional District debated over topics like mining, jobs, Ebola, healthcare, and other issues in Wausau Wednesday night.

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) and Kelly Westlund (D-Ashland) are running for the 7th Congressional District seat. The district covers part of 20 counties across northern Wisconsin.

The area lags behind the rest of the state economically. That was one of the reasons mining was a topic of focus. The Gogebic Taconite project would involve a four mile open pit mine in Iron and Ashland County. The project could mean more than 600 jobs with other secondary jobs connected to the mine.
