This Kid Has Skills!
Location: Lions Park Pond
Attached are pictures of my 10 year old son Ethan holding a 28" 10lb Rainbow Trout that he landed just after daylight at Lions Park Pond, in Frostburg MD on Saturday, June 1, 2013. The trout took a Hildebrandt Fly Spinner being pulled by 6 lb. test line, Ethan was glad he decided to pack the big landing net for this outing. Ethan decided to keep the fish after considering its chances of survival due to warming water temperatures in the pond. Ethan and I took the trout to the Bassin Box in LaVale, MD for verification of size and to register for a citation. Although I’ve taught Ethan quite a bit about fishing, he frequently out fishes me and I am always impressed by his ability to hook up on nice fish… call it luck or skill, the boy has got the knack.
