3-Year-Old Catches Monster Rainbow Trout with Spiderman Fishing Rod

3-year-old Zach from Massachusetts hooked a monster of a rainbow trout in Boston’s Jamaica Pond while out on a fishing trip with his dad – using a Spiderman fishing rod!

The little angler used the “thumb button” mechanism on his child-sized spincast-reel fishing rod, and with the implicit power of the Marvel Comics superhero behind him, he reeled in his catch. Zach was super pumped, as you can imagine.

Zach’s dad, who took the little boy on his rewarding day out, is his son’s biggest champion, and no doubt sees a glittering future in the world of angling for his talented young protégé. Zach’s catch even caught the attention of the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife, who took and shared this celebratory picture on their Facebook page.

Governor Charlie Baker of the State of Massachusetts was the man who took the initiative to stock the Jamaica Pond with 1,000 trout for the sake of recreational fishing.

The Boston Globe reported on the annual “stocking of the pond,” which has become a community-led initiative. “More than 40 students from the John F. Kennedy Elementary School and Nativity Prep School, both in Jamaica Plain, and the Dorchester Youth Academy joined state and city officials to start the fishing season,” they reported, “by helping release several species of trout into Jamaica Pond.”

How much did Zach’s fish weight in at, after all? Judging by the photo—the fish is almost as long as little Zach is tall, and it took his dad to lift it—we’re thinking a fair amount. Care to venture a guess?
