Big Ol' Fish: The fish are bitingSubmitted: 06/21/2013

THE NORTHWOODS - You need to get out on the water, because the fish are biting. We have some amazing stories including a couple from Father's Day in this week's Big Ol' Fish.

Dan Powell of Three Lakes went out with his brother in law Marty last weekend, and it seemed like the fish were practically jumping in the boat. They caught not one, not two, but 32 small mouth bass on a lake in Oneida County. The largest one was 18 inches and after taking fun photos, they were all released back into the water.

Check out the smile on little Olin Weinand's face. The three year old was fishing off his grandpa's pier on Catfish Lake in Eagle River, when he caught his very first fish. Olin was using a crappie minnow for bait. His dad hooked the perch and Olin reeled it in on his own. A
moment the family will never forget.

Father's Day was the perfect chance to spend some quality time out on the water. Rhinelander's Kayla Dickison took her dad up north for some fishing. To her delight, Kayla caught the biggest bass of the group. The fish was 19 and a half inches and made the day even more special.

And Lake Tomahawk's Stephanie Sowatzka goes fishing with her dad on Father's day every year. They had to wait out a storm, but once the skies cleared, they were able to go to their secret fishing spot. Stephanie felt a pull and couldn't believe the fight. Her dad coached her through it and as the creature surfaced, they were astonished to see a musky. She'd been fishing for walleye with an 8 pound test line and ended up with a 33 inch beauty- all thanks to the help from dad.

WAUSAU - Candidates for the 7th Congressional District debated over topics like mining, jobs, Ebola, healthcare, and other issues in Wausau Wednesday night.

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisconsin) and Kelly Westlund (D-Ashland) are running for the 7th Congressional District seat. The district covers part of 20 counties across northern Wisconsin.

The area lags behind the rest of the state economically. That was one of the reasons mining was a topic of focus. The Gogebic Taconite project would involve a four mile open pit mine in Iron and Ashland County. The project could mean more than 600 jobs with other secondary jobs connected to the mine.
