BENTON, Ky. (AP) - Ella Knois pried the worm off the end of her fishing line and fastened the hook to a rubber band wrapped around the base of the pole.

The Daily News (http://bit.ly/1zkps4R ) says the Alvaton fifth-grader tossed the worm into the lake and trotted off the dock.

Farther down, 12-year-old Kassidy Watt of Bowling Green reeled in her line. When the empty hook popped out of the water, she declaring she was right: A fish took her bait.

More than 100 children from Warren and Allen counties rode the bus recently to Camp Currie, a summer camp for fourth- through sixth-graders hosted by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife.

For a week, campers were tucked away in the woods around Kentucky Lake and challenged to pick up rifles, paddles, rods and bows.
