Good end to the trip

(As told by Cole’s dad, Matt Fenstermacher) Cole, his 11-year-old brother, Luke, and I were fishing in the Hackensack area. Cole was given the opportunity to take the boat out by himself and do some fishing. He performed admirably and returned with many fish. On Sunday morning, we were packing up to leave and the boys persuaded me to go out one last time. We had caught a lot of smaller bass and Cole was sure there was a bigger fish out there. Sure enough, after a short while, what appeared to be a snag turned out to be this 19-inch largemouth bass. Cole had the biggest smile on his face and a proud father took this picture. What a great way to end a weekend up north.

Sweet Success

Riley Mass, 10, of Foley, Minn., caught this 19-pound catfish with stink bait on Cross Lake just outside of Pine City.
