Samuel Williams, a Cub Scout, and Daniel Grabowski, a Boy Scout, bait their hooks this evening while venturing out on a dock, trying to get closer to the fish.

ALBION – Scouts in Albion kicked off a new year this evening by going fishing in an old quarry on Keitel Road. The Albion Sportsmen’s Association owns the old sandstone site.

Sawyer Braley, 9, caught this fish near a quarry wall. His father Jeff, a Scout leader, helped get the hook out. Jeff was an Eagle Scout when he went through the Scouting program.

Jeff Baron, the father of a Tiger Cub, took a turn fishing. About 50 Scouters and their family members baited hooks with worms, corn and lures. It was a serene fall day with the leaves starting to change.

Jonathan Judd, 9, gets his hook ready. Jonathan was popular among the Scouts this evening. He brought along some extra worms.

Zack Baron, 6, attended his first Scouting meeting tonight and was happy to try his luck fishing. Zack is a Tiger Cub for first-year Scouts.
