Big Ol' Fish - June 7
- 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.
