A MESSAGE FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF GAME & FISH
IN THIS WEEK’S REPORT
Fishing with Ben Allen At 11 years old, Ben Allen is an accomplished bass fisherman with the drive and determination to be one of the best. Ben is an Albuquerque native who has been fishing as long as he can remember and who literally jumps at the opportunity to fish anywhere for anything. He has dreams that are bigger than the fish that he catches, and angling has helped him develop goals that should serve him well later in life. Ben, with his younger brother Cooper and their father, Justin Allen, coordinate a kid’s fishing club in New Mexico called Kids Hooked on Fishing. They fish year-round across the state and try to get kids and family members into the great outdoors to enjoy the art of angling. Justin cherishes the quality time he gets to spend with his sons, and he is passionate about encouraging other families to give it a try.
The Department reminds anglers it is their responsibility to be aware of closures and contact land managers for properties of interest when restrictions are lifted.
