Teaching kids how to ice-fish in Monmouth


Jackson Nye, 3, of Wells gets off his bicycle to help his dad, Andrew Nye, pull in his line during the ninth annual Jack Traps Youth Ice Fishing Derby on Cochnewagon Lake in Monmouth on Saturday. About 500 children came to fish for the 300 brook trout that were put in the lake by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, said Shawn Norton of Jack Traps. “We are teaching the sport and keeping it alive for the younger generation,” he said.  (Daryn Slover/Sun Journal)
