Garland Youth Lands Big Fish From Small Pond

Recommended Posts

ATHENS, Texas—Sometimes big things come in small packages.

Jordan Rethmeier of Garland was fishing in the 1.5-acre casting pond at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens on July 4 when he caught this 26.6-pound channel catfish.

The really good news: Rethmeier returned the fish to the pond, so it might be caught again.
