Rein Golub, a Pittsford-Mendon High School senior, was named an All-American in Bass Fishing. He’s one of twelve anglers to receive the national attention. Golub started fishing at age 5 and still competes in tournaments with his dad, Ken. As a freshman he started a school fishing club as well.
While fishing on Conesus Lake Golub told reporters of his fishing prowess, “It’s just crawling with fish here, I see them scooting all around down there. There are infinite factors behind catching fish. Like, for example, moon phase. Whether it’s like overcast versus sunny days.” He also spoke on what he feels in the true purpose of fishing is, “It’s not only catching the fish. It’s the social aspect, when my friends and I always go together.”
He’s simply honored to be an All-American which he feels is a rare feat for any kid from New York. Golub has plans to attend the University of Alabama where he’ll study engineering.
