Cousins find fishing
a great spring-break activity
Several teenagers discovered that going fishing was a great way for cousins to spend time together during spring break.
Jeremy Hett of Marion and Lane Ehlers of Formoso spent the day Tuesday fishing from a boat on a farm pond owned by Jeremy’s parents, Don and Dawn Hett. Lane and his sister, Makenzie, were visiting his grandparents, Dale and Betty Ehlers of Marion, for a few days.
The cousins went out on the water at 10 a.m. and a half-hour later had caught one four-pound bass and two six-ounce crappie.
Jeremy’s brother, Quinton, and a friend joined them later. They planned to cook the fish over a campfire and eat them.
Kansas reportedly has 130,000 privately owned farm ponds. In addition to recreation, they serve as water sources for livestock and wildlife.
