Mike Auriemma is a dedicated fisherman and a very successful Great Sacandaga Lake walleye angler. But from the tone of his email I could tell his most enjoyable fishing was ever was with his 7 year old granddaughter Giana Capone. Mike was helping Giana fishing in his cousin’s 6 acre pond when the big largemouth bass grabbed her live bait. It was quite a battle for the little lady; but she wanted to do it alone. Only when she got a bit tired grandpa would put his finger under the rod until she regained her strength. She was determined and did all the reeling. The big bass tipped the scales at 6 pounds plus; and was bigger than any bass grandpa had ever caught. I wasn’t there but I guarantee you grandpa was smiling from ear to ear.
