Boy jumps in for big ol’ bass

Special to the Lake Okeechobee News

OKEECHOBEE — Jaxon Walther, 13, caught a 10-pound bass while fishing with his twin brother, Jacob, at their home pond. As Jaxon was reeling his bass in, he could tell it was much bigger than the fish he had reeled in. In fear of losing the bass, he jumped in the water.
