- The fishing is finally starting to pick up here in the Northwoods. Let's check out this week's Big Ol' Fish.

Minocqua's Frank Hess had quite a weekend on Lake Shishebogama - just west of Minocqua. Frank Hauled in 7 walleye over the weekend, including these 3 in the picture. They are 25, 24, and 22 inches. He was using a Twister Tail He says eating them was almost as fun as catching em.

Look at the nice Bluegilll 3 1/2 year old Ava Grisa of Hazelhurst reeled in last week. She caught the 8-incher fishing off the dock at home with her 15-year old brother Angel. They were fishing off McKormick Lake. She was using a worm on her Barbie fishing pole.


It's the first one she has ever reeled in all by herself. I'm told it was the centerpiece of a great cookout at the Grisa family bonfire.

Newbold's Jake Smutzer got the biggest Largemouth Bass he's ever caught. This beauty measured 20 inches and weighed 4 pounds. He was using a beaver tail worm and orange jig on Long Lake. Because it was before the season, it was release.. But not before a quick picture.

Dominic Koller of Park Falls was fishing on the Crawley Dam near Park Falls when he got a strike. Using a Bulldog lure, Dominic hauled in this enormous 52 inch musky. He needed his fishing partner to jump into the water and carry him in over the rocks. A look at the prize shows all of the effort was worth it.

MADISON - Wisconsin election officials are predicting a little more than half of the state's voting-age population will go to the polls next week.

The Government Accountability Board officials said Thursday it expects about 2.5 million people will vote Tuesday. That's about 56.5 percent of the 4.3 million people in Wisconsin old enough to vote.

GAB officials say the turnout should be similar to the 2012 gubernatorial recall election, which saw about 57.8 percent of the voting-age population go to the polls. The 2012 presidential election, by contrast, saw 70 percent turnout.
