Big Ol' Fish - Dec 12Submitted: 12/12/2013
Story By Joe Dufek


- Zak Kroscel of St. Germain reeled the biggest Northern of his life. He caught this 32 inch beauty on Little St. Germain Lake using a shiner for bait. As great as the fish looks, it should be even better at suppertime.

Jesse Peterson of Wabeno caught an even bigger prize. He pulled up this 38 1/2 inch, 16-pound monster. It was caught on a small Forest County lake using medium shiners for bait. He was fishing with his father-in-law and a family friend. I'm told Jesse will have this trophy mounted on his wall.

And 10-year old Paige Richie had to show plenty of girl-power recently. While fishing with her family on the Manitowish Chain, she caught this 25 inch walleye on 4.5 inches of ice.


She was using a golden shiner. It's the biggest fish she has ever caught. Mom told me Paige is looking forward to enjoying the catch for dinner.

More than 75 people came to check out the museum in the first two hours it was opened.

It takes a while for workers to get used to working at the complex again.

"We haven't done this since last October, September, you know, and so it's like 'oh okay, how do I do this?'" says Pioneer Park Historical Complex Coordinator Aprelle Rawski.

LAND O' LAKES - The Land O Lakes Area Artisans (LOLA) Center went through some remodeling for its classroom.

After a few months, the classroom is finally finished, and it's being dedicated to a woman who left a big impact on the community.

Friends and family got together to remember Sandra Brown, who shared her love of art with the Land O Lakes community. She passed away in 2010.

Sandra gave her time and skills to areas that didn't have art programs, and they found a way to show their appreciation.

"The space has been enlarged greatly," said LOLA President Lynn Richie. "It was a coffee shop originally. And it's being dedicated to Sandra Hardy Brown, who was instrumental in bringing us money through a memorial fund when she passed away, and it helped kick start our art classes."
