Six-year-old Calister Canarecci has had a fascination with big catfish ever since he began watching youtube videos and televised fishing shows.
“Every time we drive by a body of water, he tells me, ‘Dad, I bet there are some giant catfish in there,’” said his dad Joe, a Mishawaka city councilman.
So one evening last week, Canarecci decided to introduce his son to catfishing from the shore of the St. Joseph River at Merrifield Park.

The Michigan DNR has blocked access to its Eagle Lake access parking property, prohibiting boaters who use the older boat ramp north of the area from parking there.
According to Gary Jones, the move was made when Cass County Ontwa Township officials complained of overcrowding of people and traffic along Eagle Lake road near the parking area.
The DNR bought the property more than three years ago and has allowed public parking there ever since. The grassy area is part of a new proposed DNR boating access site that has been tied up in litigation for nearly four years.
Boaters were using the property to park their trailers after launching at the existing launch along the roadside north of the parking area. That changed late last week when the DNR placed large boulders along the roadside to prevent people from parking there.
