Fish kid Chase Stokes pike Resized9520170717951328321 cmyk.jpg

FERRISBURGH — Chase Stokes was no mere novice when he landed a state record carp this past spring. He had been fishing for almost a decade when he hauled in a 33.25-pound carp that measured 40 inches in length from Otter Creek in Panton this past April.

Chase is a bit of a phenom when it comes to fishing, but he likes to hunt, as well.
