Young Louisiana Fisherman’s Unique Catch Goes Viral For All The Right Reasons
Mason Gary, a young and enthusiastic fisherman from New Iberia, has become an internet sensation after a photo of him with an unconventional catch went viral. The young angler is seen in the photograph with a remarkable display of fishing skills and some creativity.
Mason successfully reeled in three sac-a-lait fish back-to-back using his Mr. Crappie jig pole and a Zebco micro 33 reel. The catch took place in the Big Dog Leg near Lake Fausse Pointe, a well-known fishing spot in the region. What makes this photo unique, and the reason it's gaining so much attention online, is Mason’s inventive way of showcasing his catch. With only two hands, he held two of the fish traditionally while the third was held in his mouth, showcasing his catch in a humorous and endearing manner.
Mason's viral moment is more than just a display of a young fisherman's skill; it's a heartwarming story (with a hilarious pic) that resonates with the love for fishing here in South Louisiana.
If Mason is any indicator, the younger generation's passion for fishing is alive and well in Louisiana.
