(As told by grandmother Peggy Barker)


Leah Jo had a fantastic weekend fishing at Arneson Resort on Lake of the Woods with her mom and stepdad. She caught numerous walleyes, including a 21-incher, 23-incher and a 25-incher — and topped off the trip with a trophy 28½-inch walleye. She has fished many times, but this was her largest walleye ever! She was so excited that she wanted to keep it, but decided that it would not look very good on her purple bedroom wall, so it was released.
