Big Ol' FishSubmitted: 03/29/2013

THE NORTHWOODS - Jon Solberg is a seasoned fisherman from Minocqua. He braved the winter weather in January to catch this Northern. Jon used a tip-up with a shiner for bait and released the pike after capturing the moment.


Matt Long from Tomahawk was fishing in December on an Onieda County lake. The 18-year old caught this Northern after a 10 minute fight. Matt used a jig pole with a 6 pound test line that was baited with a shiner.

And Rhinelander's Jed Dart enjoys fishing year round. He caught a Northern on Thunder Lake using a sucker minnow. This beauty was 33 inches and 9 pounds and definitely worth keeping. On an earlier trip, the 11-year old reeled in a 22 inch large mouth bass on the same lake. The fish was released but the smile on Jed's face is priceless.
