Big Ol' Fish - July 19Submitted: 07/19/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas


- Lots of fishermen are taking advantage of summer vacations to hit the water. Many of them are catching their biggest fish of the season.

Arbor Vitae's Zach Allen went out fishing with his cousin and landed this 21 inch smallmouth bass. He was on a lake north of Minocqua and used a mini-mite for bait. This beauty was the biggest Zach had ever caught and it was released after capturing the moment.

Jeff Wayne of Summit Lake went fishing with his wife in Green Bay. He was hoping for walleye, but ended up with this 30 inch, 10 pound catfish. Jeff used a crawler harness and after a few pictures, released this big ol fish.


There's also lots of nice fishing up in the UP. JoAnn Krusick of Watersmeet was thrilled to bring in this 27 and a half inch walleye. The monster fish was caught on a jig with a minnow. It was her biggest fish to date. As you can see from JoAnn's smile, it's a memory that will last a lifetime.

9-year old Trevor Burby won a musky rod this spring and saved up his chores money to buy a reel for it. During his families yearly vacation to Conover he went musky fishing with his stepdad Tim. After a half hour on upper Buckatabon Lake, Trevor got a bite on his bulldawg. With some help from Tim, he netted this 45 inch musky! Trevor plans to have it mounted... and his first musky turned out to be bigger than any his parents have ever caught.

MILWAUKEE - One bald eagle has died and another is in serious condition in Wisconsin after ingesting lead from ammunition.

The Dane County Humane Society has treated two bald eagles with lead poisoning in the past two weeks. The birds likely swallowed lead while feeding on deer or other wildlife carcasses that had been shot, or by eating waterfowl that had ingested lead.

The first bald eagle survived only a day after it was brought into a Humane Society facility last week with acute lead poisoning. The Humane Society hopes a second bird found Friday will survive.
