My name is Donald. I'm 8 years old. We go up north [Wisconsin] for a week in July. This year I made my own fishing pole out of a stick and tied fishing line and a hook on it. I took my homemade pole with me on vacation. After a 2-hour car ride, the first thing I wanted to do when I got there was to fish. So I grabbed my pole and some worms and headed for the dock. I baited my pole, stuck my line in the water, about 2 minutes later I had a big hit, and pulled up a 16-inch large mouth bass. My first fish of our week vacation.
My mom took my picture of my fish with my homemade pole. I caught a lot more fish with my stick. What a fun time.
