Stevens Point brothers win River Series Mohawksin qualifier
The rain held off in Tomahawk for most of the day as the Central Wisconsin River Series anglers fished Lake Mohawksin in Tomahawk. With the waterski nationals going on near Veterans' Park, anglers who opted to head up river found a longer slow, no wake near the bridge on Fourth Street, but it was not enough to hamper their spirits or slow down their fishing.

Musky not to blame
"There! See it! Right behind my lure!" I sensed the excitement in my dad's voice as he tried to get me to see my first free swimming musky. Sure enough, two feet behind the yellow bucktail I spotted the dark green, torpedo-shaped fish. (subscriber access)

Fish like a girl
Anyone who has read my column with regularity (thank you to both of you!) knows I love to fish, and that love of fishing was fostered very early on. My dad took me hunting and fishing quite a bit when I was young. My grandma also took me fishing. I was fortunate they both had the time, and the inclination, to do that. I was lucky neither one of them threw me in the lake as well, but that is a story for another day. Suffice it to say I was a fairly hyper kid and not always the most focused. (subscriber access)
