A three-year-old named Zach took the city and social media by storm with his huge catch of rainbow trout in May 2018 at Jamaica Pond in Boston, Massachusetts. And the most interesting part of this experiment is that he did it with a blue and red rod from Spiderman!
The Governor of Massachusetts and the State, along with Massachusetts Wildlife, work together to supply different regions with different types of trout – rainbow, brook, brown and tiger – for everyone’s enjoyment (regardless of age ). This helps to endorse outdoor sport as well as foster community and family bonds. And more precisely at that time, the Jamaica pond was populated with about 1,000 trout.

Earlier this month, Zach (3) caught one of the large rainbow trout that MassWildlife has stored at Jamaica Pond with @MassGovernor (on his Spiderman® fishing rod, of course). Nice catch! For all trout stock updates, see https://t.co/6xBllrNa63 (photo: Phil Kidd) pic.twitter.com/SLqQmkZkTX

And to celebrate Zach’s catch, the official Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game Twitter account tweeted a photo of him with a big smile standing next to his trout, which was almost bigger than him! Well, Zach wasn’t the first little kid to wrap a grip on a toy cane or a Spiderman cane at that point. (Spidey is definitely a favorite kid)but he’s definitely caught the biggest…so far.
