A 4-year-old angler reeled in a trophy catch -- a 27-inch walleye -- using a toy pole.
Avery Stroh was fishing Sunday on Otter Tail Lake with his father, brother and uncle when he landed the catch, his first walleye, using a tadpole as bait on a rod smaller than popular toy poles, KARE reported.
Avery has been fishing since he was 2, when he would practice casting a hook-less weight.
