Big Ol' Fish - June 13Submitted: 06/13/2014
Story By Joe Dufek


- Folks fishing on the area lakes and rivers continue to get some great catches and stories.

Let's check out this week's Big Ol' Fish.

Last month, 7-year old Steven Coffen of Minocqua went fishing at an area lake with his Grandpa Meade and Uncle Mike. Using a pink battle spin for a lure, Steven reeled in this HUGE walleye. 27 inches. It's the biggest one he has ever caught. I'm told it was a great meal for dinner.

Rhinelander's Brenda Robinson was at an area lake recently. using a jig and a fathead minnow - Brenda caught this beautiful 22.5 inch walleye. She said it was such a great day on the water and the fish was a bonus.


And 8-year old Hailey Reynolds of Eagle River had quite a time with her dad and her brother Colton. Fishing on Otter Rapids Dam on the Wisconsin River near Eagle River, Hailey hauled in her first muskie. 34 inches. She was using a Rapala lure for bass. Legend has it, she had to use every muscle in her tiny body - but she reeled it in all by herself. Her dad Justin is very proud of her. After the picture, the fish was released.
