Martin Karwoski of Indian Trail and his son Owen, 5 1/2, with a 15-pound blue catfish the youngster caught Saturday at Lake Norman. It was the largest of 20 blues boated while the two fished with Bill Ward of Denver, N.C., on the lake’s Davidson Creek arm. Owen reeled in 17 of the fish, shouting “I got this!” each time one took their baits, a mix of chicken strips and cut white perch.
