Joey Meade, age 8, of Cedar Springs, is shown here with his grandpa Alan Oberlin, and Joey’s first ever rainbow trout! Joey, the son of Craig (CJ) and Stacy Meade, of Cedar Springs, caught the fish on South Manistique Lake, Curtis, Michigan, while on vacation with grandparents Alan and Sherri Oberlin. Grandpa and Grandma were catching blue gills, and Joey, who loves to fish, pulled in two pike (18 and 20 inches), this 16-inch trout, and a bullhead 12-inches long. The pike were too small, however, and had to go back in the water. It was a good week in the UP!
Congratulations Joey, you made the Post Catch of the Week!
