Fourteen-year-old Jaxton Orr, of Fort Wayne, got his feet wet in competitive kayak fishing in October and he is already making a splash in the sport.
Jaxton has been fishing since he was 5 years old, his father, Jim Orr, said.
Late last year, Jaxton took an interest in pursuing the sport more competitively.
“I wanted to get into tournament fishing from the beginning,” he said. “At first I wanted a bass boat, but those were a little expensive.”
So, he looked into kayak fishing.
