Liz and Adam Shiek moved to the area two years ago and were able to get their young son, Dominic, out on the water for the first time fishing on July 17.

It proved to be a memorable trip on Lake Miltona. The family was fishing with Lindy Rigs at about 2 p.m. when Adam latched into a walleye that will go on the wall. The fish was measured at Christopherson Bait in Alexandria at 30 inches with a 16.5-inch girth.
