Ashton Lamb of Miltona got rewarded for helping out around home on July 13 with a memorable evening on the water.

Lamb, 10-years-old from Miltona, helped his dad, Bryce Lamb, split wood all day and then got to head to Christopherson Bait in Alexandria to pick out his own tackle for a fishing trip.

Ashton grabbed a Rapala and then went on a Douglas County lake to try it out. He and his dad were trolling in about 25 feet of water at a little after 5 p.m. when Ashton latched into a 26-inch walleye.
