Royal Ice Fishing Tourney provides 'never forget moment' for youngest fisherman award winner
January 12, 2023
Andi Bayne of Omaha will never forget the first time she competed in the Royal Ice Fishing Tournament.
The five year old returned to Nebraska's largest city with a fishing tale of epic proportions.
Bayne received the trophy for the youngest female fisherman and memories of spending Saturday night in an ice fishing hut at the lake.
It started when her dad, Nick, lost his iPhone, which spilled into the frozen lake.
"It's out there in the lake with the fishies," Nick said.
The family would have made accomodations at a motel. Without a phone, Bayne couldn't make a call to reserve a room.
