This week’s winner of Chetek’s 2019 Catch-and-Release Fishing Photo Contest is Chetek resident Bob Taft, who landed this giant 39-inch northern pike while fishing with Dan Akins, owner of Stringer’s Catch Guide Service. Taft caught the healthy pike on Ten Mile Lake and was using a sucker minnow for bait. Taft will be awarded a $20 gift card, courtesy of Rod & Gun Sport Shop. The photo contest is meant to promote the catch-and-release aspect of fishing on the Chetek Chain, while encouraging photographers to take unique, clever and clear photos for submission. To submit a photo, anglers will need to catch a fish, take a digital photo, release the fish and then send the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
