The Hamlin and Hanson cousins – Kyle Hamlin, 13, East Grand Forks; Rylan Hanson, 13, Fisher, Minn.; and Westyn Hanson, 7, Fisher – had themselves an adventurous afternoon along the Red River on Tuesday, Aug. 3, catching a mixed bag of carp, catfish and freshwater drum. Westyn caught the 10-pound carp and freshwater drum on a small panfish rod, writes Luke Hamlin, East Grand Forks, who submitted the photos. All of the fish were released.
