Dakota Vannarsdall, a young local angler, doesn’t have to tell any “fish tales” about the one that got away.
It took three tries, but Dakota and his brother, Logan, finally dragged in a large-mouth bass weighing almost 7 pounds to the edge of a local farm pond. The fish measured 21 inches long.
Dakota is the 10-year-old son of Keith and Missy Vannarsdall, and said he loves to fish almost as much as he loves playing basketball.
