Catch of the Week

OUT-Catch-HammondAndrew Hammond, age 12, caught his first bass (20 inches—a keeper), while fishing at the trailer of his grandparents, Tom and Maxine Schaner, at Paradise Cove, in Sand Lake.

Andrew fishes every weekend while camping at Sand Lake and he has caught several fish, but not a bass this size. According to his mom, Pam, this was a great day for Andrew. They are having the fish mounted for his 13th birthday.

Congratulations, Andrew, you made the Post Catch of the Week!

It turned out to be a good choice. Tyler, 16, caught this northern pike, which weighed in at 20 pounds and 43-1/2 inches. His parents had it mounted for him, with friends and relatives pitching in to help create a nice keepsake for him.
