Hooking a whale at Lake Clementia
On RanchoMurieta.com's Facebook page, Brian Donnalley shares this photo of his 5-year-old son, Liam, and the whale he caught today. No, it's not a whale, Brian says. He says it’s a grass carp, 9.75 pounds. Liam was using a 5-foot ultralight pole with 2-pound test line and a worm as bait, his dad says.
Liam's catch couldn't qualify as the day's biggest, his dad says, because that's limited to trout.
"That’s ok," Brian writes, "my son was happy for catching the biggest fish of his life so far. He also caught a bass and two red-eared sunfish. Would like to thank the Kiwanis club and CA DFG for all they do for the kids."
