That's North Dakota Whopper!

Five-year-old Matt Graue and the whopper he caught spearfishing on Devils Lake Feb. 2.

Mike Graue took his youngest son, Matt (age 5) spearfishing last weekend on Devils Lake. 

Matt speared his first three Northern Pike on Saturday Feb 2.  With some coaching from dad, he positioned the spear above the fish, lowered the tines just below the surface of the water and then threw the spear.  The third fish that he speared was nearly 42" and 20.12 lbs. 

They were fishing in about 6 feet of water and retrieved all three of the fish that Matt speared.  This kid is so excited to tell his story he wouldn't even let mom wash the Northern slime from his school jacket until he could show his friends.
