- The snow has played havoc on the spring sports season. But area anglers continue to plug away on the ice.
Marisa Silvas tells us your stories in this week's "Big Ol' Fish."
Crandon's Ryan Alloway took a trip with his dad to Door County. The 13-year old went out with JJ's guide service and brought in this 25 inch walleye. Ryan hooked it on a green oddball in 16 feet of water... and this catch made his vacation even more special.
Paul Harder of Tomahawk went ice fishing a few weeks ago on an area lake.
He was pleased to come away with this beauty. The crappie made his outing worthwhile and measured 14 and a half inches.
Many people may be frustrated with the snow... but last Monday, Joe Beda was loving it, cause he got a snow day from North Lakeland Elementary. Joe went out on Fish Trap Lake with his grandpa John and caught some blue gills. They used wax worms with a jig and kept the fish. He'll be celebrating his 10th birthday next week and says the gills made for a nice meal.
RHINELANDER - Fourteen years later and a family of superheroes are back on the big screen, but Incredibles 2 is also sparking some concerns.
After the movie's box office opening, movie theaters like Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander got a letter from Disney.

RHINELANDER - You need to really get outside into nature to truly appreciate it. That's what Oneida County hopes you experience walking through its new pollinator garden behind the courthouse, which is close to completion.
Workers from Hanson's Garden Village laid out the key part to getting you into that garden along Baird Avenue on Tuesday. The gravel walkway allows water to drain into the soil, preventing runoff into the street.
A $1,500 Wisconsin Public Service Foundation grant paid for almost all of the walkway, which will lead through the garden to a picnic table. The walkway will be ADA-accessible, which will allow people with wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers to navigate the garden.
WOODRUFF - The Woodruff Fire Department took a step towards getting a new kind of fire truck to its station. For years, the department has considered investing in a ladder truck to better serve the community.
Recently the town board has given the department to go-ahead to start looking.
A demonstration was held Tuesday night so that the department could see the difference between a 75 ft. ladder versus a 107 ft. ladder truck. The demonstration was also to get town board members more familiar with that kind of truck.
