Just a neat little story, I thought I would share.

Kody Muse, age 3, of Redding, caught a digitally weighed 21.88 pound brown trout after a five minute fight Saturday afternoon using a worm and 6 pound test at the Mt. Shasta Fish Hatchery’s Kids’ Fishing Day. *
His father, Tony, said, “Kody was so excited, and the fish was so big that he busted the net.”
“I was excited,” Kody himself said. “We caught a monster trout!”
When asked if he was scared reeling in such a lunker, Kody shook his head and shouted, “No!” Tony plans to have the massive fish mounted for his son.
Monty Currier, associate fishery biologist for the California Department of Fish and Game, said the purpose of Kids’ Fishing Day is to, “Try to get kids into being outdoors and appreciating nature.” Kids’ Fishing Day has been an area staple for 18 years.
At the southeast pond, Jerome Walker of McCloud watched his daughters Niyazmine, age 9, and Alisha, age 4, cast their lines and wait for bites. By early afternoon, they hadn’t had any luck. But neither girl seemed disappointed and Niyazmine said it was just as fun to fish as spend time with her dad.
Wildlands Program Volunteer Cheryl Pike said 749 kids participated in Saturday’s free event. “It’s a blast,” Pike said. “It’s fun talking to the kids, watching their faces. A couple from the Bay Area happened onto it with their kids and they asked if they could just go and look. I asked them, ‘Why would you just want to go and look when you can fish?’ So they took their kids and fished and they had a great time.”
The next Kids’ Fishing Day will be held on Saturday Aug. 16 from 9-3, with free bait and some free loaner tackle available. Contact the Fish Hatchery, 3 Old Stage Road, 530-926-2215 for more information.

Wow, :o
Did they strap him down to his chair so the darn thing wouldn't pull him in for a swim?
That kid just outdid me and probably 80 % or more of the guys on the forum for their personal best fish, and he is only 3. Now he gets to spends the rest of his life chasing after a bigger fish... ::)
Sounds like a nice time, nice to show the little ones what it can be like outside away from the TV and video games.

I still remember my first fish when I was about his age. It was a 3 inch long female bluegill with almost no markings on it. He probably will remember it for the rest of his life if hes anything like me.

That's amazing! What a shame though to have caught the biggest trout of your life right at the start of your fishing career and he may not even remember it later apart from the photos (hope you got lots of those for him and perhaps some video too!).

That is just plain awesome to see the looks on their faces. Puts everything about this sport in perspective.

The bottom half of dad's shorts are wet. Something tells me that when the net broke, he wasn't gonna let that pig get away from his son. Good job! :)

The kid won't care and neither will his dad. Great to hear its going on the wall. Wow, what a beauty.

WOW!!!! I just came across this thread for the first time. Look at the tail on that thing, you can't even tell its a planter. That little guy caught a bigger brown at 3 than most of us will ever catch!

It is certainly worth a good detailed mount.

My guess is it's not a "hatchery" fish but rather one capitalizing on the menu served up by the hatchery. The hatchery fish would be a mere snack for the one [smiley=yikes.gif]

That hatchery in Mt. Shasta has some HUGE fish. They are mostly Eagle lake strain. They even have two ten pound albino rainbows. They have a pond in the back that is full of monsters, just for the kids. :)

The pond out back is where this thing came from, on a "kids free fishing day" at the hatchery.

It's a picture of a proud father and a happy kid with a huge fish. You can bet that's all that matters to the kid and as was said, he's set the bar pretty high right from the start. ;) 8-)

Awesome job!
