The 5th annual Randy and Janine Memorial Fish-O-Ree on Wallace Lake was a success! More than 50 fishermen braved the chilly but sunny weather Saturday as they tested their luck on the ice behind Eddie’s Lake House.
The ice measured 6 – 9 inches and some of the more sizable catches included a 10-inch perch from Kevin Roman of West Bend, 11.5 crappie and a 9-inch blue gill from Jesse Arndt and a 8.5-inch blue gill from a Chris H.
There were raffles and door prizes as money was raised for ABATE of Wisconsin, a motorcycle awareness group. The memorial fishery is dedicated to Randy Brossard and Janine Roman who were killed in May 2011 when their motorcycle struck a vehicle that pulled out in front of the couple on Highway 33 in West Bend.
