Tomahawk Police Report; Alert Resident Avoids Scam
Published on 03/24/2017 under News An alert local man was able to avoid a recent scam attempt. According to the Tomahawk Police report, the Tripoli man received a letter that appeared to be from the US Department of Treasury. The authentic looking document stated that the man owed money. The man became suspicious as he did not think he had any debts. In this particular scam, the letter head actually listed the proper address of the Department of Treasury. It also had a fake number that directed the potential victim to the scammer. The officers worked with the man to verify it was a scam and also directed him to the proper federal agencies for reporting. Tomahawk Police Report An individual walking on the Hiawatha trail reported graffiti near the trestle, which was confirmed. Officers are investigating. Officers provided assistance to the Everest Metro Police in their investigation of a hit and run involving a car registered to a Tomahawk woman. Officers on Wednesday were to the waters near SARA Park for a dog that had fallen into the water. By the time the officer arrived on the scene, the owner was able to get the dog out safely. The pet was brought to a local vet for a check up and appeared to be recovering. There was one reported deer strike, which occurred on Highway 51 near the Wisconsin River Bridge.

DNR Starting Catch and Release Record Book
Published on 03/24/2017 under News When the 2017 fishing season opens in a few weeks, anglers will be able to land a record fish while letting that fish live to fight another day. This spring, the DNR is rolling out a "catch-and-release" record book. The new program is part of a larger effort to promote quality fishing and encourage the careful release of trophy-size fish. The DNR noted that similar efforts have found success in other states and among some national record-keeping organizations. When the program is rolled out in May, it will, of course, have several rules. The fish will be verified by photographic evidence. The clear, color and sideview photos must include one with the fish lying along a ruler or measuring device and a second with the fish and the angler. A DNR fisheries biologist will then identify the species and verify the length from the photos. (additional rules are available on the DNR website) Justine Hasz, DNR fisheries bureau director says, "What we've seen with musky populations in areas where there is a strong catch and release ethic is that the fish are reaching larger sizes and providing more anglers with the experience of a lifetime. Since it can take 10 years or more for walleye to reach trophy size and 15 years or more for musky, our new catch and release record option means Wisconsin's legendary fish will create even more memories." The new live release record book will exist along side the current, standard record book.
