Ella Kantola and her friends were among more than hundred anglers on Portage Bay yesterday in Keewatin yesterday. They were enjoying spring-like weather, as they sat in third place at the St. Louis fish derby.
"I wasn't here, when she caught it. I was over there with Claire. So, I got back, and she said, 'I caught a fish,' " said Kantola, but she couldn't remember what kind it was.
Early leaders also included a two and a half pound catch by Tootie Benoit, while Bill Forster's fish was second at 2.4 pounds.
