Kids’ blog: Catching 10-pound carp puts a smile on local youngster’s face
By Ansel Trevino
It was just starting to get dark. Me, my dad, and my dad’s friend had decided to go fishing together, while my grandpa walked the dogs. After a long day of catching nothing, my luck changed. I knew then that this was going to be a big catch. I felt the weight of the fish as I started to crank the reel.
Luckily, my dad’s friend brought a net to get the fish out of the water and put it into the bag to weigh.
The fish barely fit in the bag, and had its tail hanging out.
We weighed it and the fish weighed roughly 10 pounds. We then measured the fish, at a length of 25 inches. It was now time to let the beautiful fish go. I saw the sun reflect off the fish scales as it touched the water. It rested there for a short while, waving its tail back and forth, and eventually, its silhouette disappeared.
