(9/14/13) A Fond du Lac fisherman has quite the fishing story to tell... and has proof.

Ray Groff hooked a 47-inch flintlock musket with the anchor of his boat on September 4 in Lake Winnebago. The musket is believed to be dated sometime in the late 17-hundred to early 18-hundreds. Groff says in his 40 years of fishing the southern end of Lake Winnebago, it's the catch of his life.
