Angling for fun

The fish were ceremoniously dropped into Lake Vesuvius. Then the fun really began Thursday at the 10th annual Wheelin’ Sportsmen Fishing Day.

Hundreds of people packed the boardwalk around the lake, trying to snag some of the 3,000 trout added that morning. The event is put on each year to allow those with disabilities a few hours of fun in the outdoors. Sunday’s Focus will feature more of the day’s activities.
