Harper Lee Henry, 6, caught this bass in August during her birthday party at a private pond near Leo. She was using a new pole that she received as a present. She casted, caught, and landed the bass all by herself.
Max Mickley 6, of Fort Wayne, caught this large mouth bass, using a juicy worm, pole and bobber off of neighbor Bill Bailey's pier on Hamilton Lake, Hamilton.
Olivia Leitz, 6, of Fort Wayne, caught her first fish in Spetember at Crystal Lake in Arlington Park. She was very happy to return the small bluegill to the water. Her little sister Kennedy (in the background) was more interested in bugs while their father Chris Leitz was busy baiting the hooks.
