Laporte’s third annual Take a Kid Fishing netted 17 girls and nine boys to cast a line on Garfield Lake Saturday. The conditions were cool but the fishing was hot. Fifteen boats headed out on the water with guides. Lakeport First Responders were on the scene. “It was a lot of fun,” Smith said upon returning to shore. “If I can, I will definitely do it again.”
