Big Ol' Fish - June 14thSubmitted: 06/14/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


THE NORTHWOODS - Rhinelander's Hunter Poulos was visiting his grandparents in Sugar Camp and decided to do a little fishing. The 14 year old was glad he did, because he caught this large mouth bass on Echo Lake. Hunter held on to it long enough to take a couple pictures, then released the fish to swim another day.

Jon Solberg of Minocqua went out the last week of May and reeled in this smallmouth bass. The 20 inch fish was caught on a rattlin' rogue and was one of many good sized pre-spawn smallies caught in Vilas County.

Cody Kangas from Phelps was fishing from the dock when he felt a tug. The 11 year old brought up this 37 inch, 12 and a half pound northern. Cody was using an artificial crawfish with a white jig and was quite proud of himself.

And ladies are having success out on the water too. Summit Lake's Wendy Wayne caught this 21 inch walleye. She was fishing on Lake Gogebic and used a floating jig. Wendy says she's looking forward to making a good meal with this beauty.

WHITE LAKE - After this week it may seem that spring is a long way off, butsome people in northern Wisconsin are still hopeful. 

People are especially hopeful in White Lake.  Village leaders put Iron Mike out on the lake on Wednesday. 

That means you can officially start guessing when the ice will melt—and when the metal-man will fall through it. 

"Norman Mike Berg is the one who came up with the idea," said Chris Oatman, a White Lake Village Board Trustee. "And Iron Mike is named after Mike Berg. And Mike was a native of White Lake and just so active in the community, for veterans and the school and so many things." 

After a 50-year hiatus, this is the second annual contest the village is hosting. Last year Iron Mike fell through on April 2. The winner got a $500 prize. Money raised from ticket sales also helps support the local VFW. 

"It's really exciting, the people really get into it," Oatman said. "The tickets are 5 dollars and basically the format for this year is you have to guess the day, and then you have to put down a time. So the closest one to the day without going over wins the prize." 

Iron Mike is one of many celebrations White Lake has this year. The village is celebrating it's centennial. The village will also have its annual Fishing Derby on Saturday as well.
