Big Ol' Fish - Mar 20Submitted: 03/20/2014
Story By Joe Dufek


- Rhinelander's Tony Sattler drove 8 hours overnight to get in some serious fishing on Lake Erie. The trip was well worth it. Just an hour after getting there, Tony reeled in this beautiful walleye 31-inch walleye. It weighed nearly 12 pounds. He was using a buck shot rattler in 28' depth. This prize is getting mounted.

Bill Beyer of Mercer had an incredible opening morning of the sturgeon spearing season on Lake Winnebago. Using an old fashion multicolored tin toy top as a decoy, Bill hauled in this HUGE 72.2 inch Sturgeon. It weighed 97.2 pounds. It's his biggest one ever. This memory will last a lifetime.


And 7-year old Tucker Leman of Lake Tomahawk (on the left) and his 10-year old brother Colton took first prize in the kids division for the Lake Tomahawk Family Jamboree. This 37 1/2 inch Northern weighed 18 pounds. Tucker says if Colton wasn't there, he would not have been able to reel in the beast. Great team-work guys.
