Quite A Catch

Submitted photo

Eight-year-old Ethan Arnone of Lakewood is pictured with his grandpa, Mike Danielson, during a successful fishing trip. Ethan landed this 37-inch, 39-pound carp while bobber fishing for panfish. They were fishing in a pond in Chautauqua County. Ethan managed to fight the fish in with light tackle, using only a 4-pound test line. “The fish fought really hard for a long time and took out a lot of line. I held tight on the rod and kept reeling,” Ethan said. “It’s my biggest fish yet.” After a few pictures, Ethan and his grandpa released the fish back in the water like good sportsmen. “Maybe I’ll catch him again,” Ethan said, “when he’s even bigger.”
