Austin's Lunker Northern

9 year old .... "Future Angling Pro" ???

Austin Knight of Clarence loves to fish. He wants to be just like his Dad (Keith), and his Grandpa (Bob Knight). When the weather does not let him on the water he spends his time practicing on PS2 and PS3 fishing games. The Bass was caught while fishing with his Grandpa at a Cedar County State park and was almost right at 3 lbs. Austin wants to preserve the fishing in Iowa so he released it after the photo to be caught again. The Northern he caught was almost more then he could handle. His small Zebco combo reel was all but useless after he got it the 5 pounder to the boat while fishing with his Dad on the Mississippi by Guttenburg. After a short trip to shore for a picture he quickly released this one as well for future anglers to enjoy! Great job Austin your Dad and Grandpa are VERY proud of you... Guess it's time for a better quality rod and reel Grandpa...... lol...
