The Star-Herald has had a lot of people reeling in some great catches for the Biggest Fish Contest.

This week is no different.

Jeremy Gasseling of Potter caught this week’s Catch of the Week, a muskie on June 26 at Oliver Reservoir. The fish measured 46 inches. Kevin Frei witnessed the catch.

Keep on casting those lines to win some great prizes in this year’s Biggest Fish Contest, again sponsored by Cabela’s.

Anglers who catch the longest fish of each recognized game-fish species will win a Cabela’s $25 gift card and be eligible for the grand prize of a Cabela’s $100 gift card and a tailgate fillet table donated by Cabela’s. Species winners are based on length, not weight, and catch-and-release is encouraged.

The Star-Herald welcomes submissions from anglers of fish caught in the upstream waters of the North Platte River system. Lake McConaughy is also included.

Entries must include a clear photo of the fish and the angler who caught it, information about the place it was caught, its length in inches (weight optional) and the name and phone number of a witness to confirm the length of the fish and the day it was caught. Nebraska Master Angler applications also are acceptable.
