Spring Fishing at “The Pond”

Even though April 29th was a chilly day, Austin Frank braved the elements to prove that the fish didn’t “freeze out” of the new pond during the marathon cold winter. On May 24, 2013, the DNR stocked the pond with fish, but there was concern whether they could survive the harsh winter in the shallow pond. Austin and his sister Alexis have since caught several more fish from the pond. Big sister, Ashley, is away at college, but is sure to get some inside fishing tips from her siblings next time she’s home! Parents of the young anglers are Jeremy and Stacey Frank of Olivia.
