What happens when your senior graduation is canceled due to a worldwide pandemic? You get a free fishing trip. For seniors in Lee County, they got to spend their final high school memories right off the Sanibel Causeway, reeling in trophy fish.
Angler Alex Foster has been fishing for many years and for many different species of fish. Though the 51-year-old has been fishing since he was a little boy, this year he accomplished a first, catching a world record breaking striped bass in Chesapeake Bay, Virginia. Not only did he catch one record breaker, but two in the span of a couple of weeks!
In recent years, the Georgia High School Association has been ﬁnding ways to make sure all students have activities they can participate in. Now students will have another non-traditional option: bass ﬁshing.
