Isaac Nelson hooked a largemouth bass that weighed .65 pounds to win the biggest fish contest at the Red Wing Rotary Kids Fishing Contest.


Nelson, 10, had stiff competition Thursday at the Pottery Pond: The 47 entrants caught more than 400 fish during the 90-minute event.

Reese Nystuen caught the most fish. The 6-year-old finished with 40.

Logan Sammon, 10, caught the first fish while Allexis Bohmbach, 6, was honored for catching the smallest fish. Adam Dilks, 5, tied Bohmbach for the smallest fish, but he lost a drawing to determine the winner.

Nelson, Nystuen, Sammon and Bohmbach each won a fishing pole.
