Teen lands another big fish

Posted on: July 30, 2015 | Bob Frye | Comments

Austin Aikins is back at it.
The 13-year-old from Lower Burrell who’s quickly developing a reputation for catching big fish got himself another one recently. Using a shiner as bait while fishing on Shenango River Lake, he landed a 28-inch hybrid striped bass. The fish weighed a little more than 10 pounds.
The striper was the first Austin ever caught.
