Area fisherman reels in big catch

Dan Coakley, a 13-year-old eighth-grader at St. Barnabas Elementary School, enjoyed success while fishing on Sept. 1, landing a five-pound largemouth bass in a pond near the Fountain Hills Golf Club. Coakley’s friend, Jack Elenteny, then captured the young angler for posterity. (photo courtesy of the Coakley Family)
