James Ballard, an information technology professional with the Atlanta branch of the Federal Reserve, coaches his grandson, Raphael, 5, April 23 at the Fort Gillem Youth Fishing Rodeo at Stevens Lake at Fort Gillem.
Raphael caught five fish and was the top angler at the event. His secret technique: "Here fishy, fishy, fishy."
Starting at 8:00 a.m., military and DoD Civilian Family members were joined by local Forest Park children in the 10th Annual Youth Fishing Rodeo.
The young anglers, not older than 13-years-old, fished from 8:30 until 11 a.m. at which time they broke for snacks and prizes.
