Matt Biggerstaff emailed photos of his son Isaac with a 14-pound Chinook caught earlier in September from their kayak.

Matt and Isaac have joined the Libertyville Fishing Club recently and the most wholesome thing about it is they are a father-son team who fish out of a two-man kayak, Lou DiNicola emailed. There is hope for the world after all. Recruitment of our youth is a bigger challenge to fishing than catching fish!

And I love the photo below of the kayak.
