We don't have a way to access past articles on our website, but we do have copies of all past papers dating back to the 1970s here at the Tomahawk Leader. If you ever want to do some searching stop by the paper and I'll help you out..
I'm thinking between 92-95 would be the time that would have appeared in print. Although, if you speak to Gene again just ask him, he'll tell you. In case his memory needs a little help, it was about a guy (my husband) that took a nap while he was anchored under one of the train trussels there in town by the 'airport'. We'd caught a 44"r in that very same location 3 years prior on a "yellow furry thing" (yellow bucktail) only this time he was fishing a sucker w/a bobber the size of a life jacket. SO he kicked back took a nap while I continued to fish for crappies. We got ready to leave & journey the 5 hours home and we'd hooked that poor sucker at least half a dozen times. So he jerked and jerked and tried to get it to fall off but then that sucker got hit and hit hard!! The musky finally yielded in about 10 minutes. We got her boatside and into the net when we discovered that she was never hooked!! She had grabbed hold of that sucker and was NOT going to let go. That is why she's on our wall today, she is our only fish that was never hooked!!mrbrowns wrote:I'd love to read the lazy fisherman story. Like birds of the feather, I'm sure I could relate to much of what the article concerns..
