Nice catch for a 3 year old
« on: July 13, 2019, 08:26:01 PM »
With his dad and biggest cheerleader by his side, he landed the fish and prompted the Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game to share the picture.

It's easy to see how happy this future angling all-star is!

 Earlier this month, Zach (age 3) caught one of the large rainbow trout that MassWildlife stocked in Jamaica Pond with @MassGovernor (on his Spiderman® fishing rod, of course). Nice catch! For all trout stocking updates, check http://mass.gov/trout  (photo: Phil Kidd)
Spiderman himself would have been proud of how well Zach performed with his new fishing pole. The red-colored reel and blue pole performed spectacularly and never became tangled. Video games can take a back seat because Zach is now a fisherman for life!

Thanks to Governor Charlie Baker and the State of Massachusetts for stocking the pond with 1,000 trout for young and old anglers alike to enjoy.

Congratulations, Zach!

Wow that's a big rainbow.  Congrats on that catch!!!  That one must of been a breeder the DNR puts in those ponds after they are done taking eggs from them.  They do that here in Minnesota also.  They stock those along with the 12 to 14 inchers.  Yes it's a great thing the DNR is doing with stocking these ponds and lakes.  good luck.
