Area kids enjoy opening fishing weekend

By Heather Sawaski

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -- It was a beautiful weekend to get outdoors, around town or on the water. Fishing season is officially underway in Wisconsin and people were taking full advantage.

Blue Gill Bay Park in Rib Mountain was a prime spot Sunday for anglers of all ages. Ten year old Logan Grzywacz wasted no time snagging his first catch, and neither did any of the other young anglers.

"I caught a fishy and it was big and it didn't wiggle," explained 5 year old Jacob Difrancis.

"I actually cast it over the tree and then I suddenly got it," Grzywacz said. "That's all I had to do. I quick jerked it, reeled it in, and there I go!"

Before you cast your line, a current fishing license is required by the DNR. To find out how to get one, plus all the rules and regulations, click here.
