The Fishing Was Good In Flooded Ohio Street

NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio (May 15, 2014) A northern Ohio teenager snared a 3-foot carp in the receding water after heavy rain flooded his street.

Jake Sawyer, 16, of North Royalton, Ohio, waded through more than ankle-deep water as he stalked the big fish in the dark Monday night and eventually trapped it.

He says he suspects the large grass carp came from a nearby pond, which swelled during heavy rains that caused flash-flooding in the area.

Because he wanted to ensure the fish didn't become trapped and die in the street, he says he carried it back to the pond.

He estimates it weighed 40 pounds.
