Blake Cornett, 9, was one of the big winners of the day, catching one of the largest fish in his age group during the children’s fishing derby. Not only is the size of the carp impressive, so too is how the youngster caught it. “By hand,” he said. “... It was just swimming by and I couldn’t let it go. I jumped in and caught it.”
