She caught it when she went fishing with her husband, Joe, last Monday afternoon.
She was on the riverbank 7
Christina was very excited that she caught a cod. She said her hands were shaking.
‘‘My arms were sore after reeling the cod in,’’ she said.
Christina said she didn’t go fishing often, just here and there. She hasn’t been for a whole year. She went on Monday to try and catch a cod to have for Christmas dinner.

Christina will share the cod with her family and friends for Christmas dinner.
‘‘I hope to go (fishing) again but my husband won’t take me,’’ Christina said.
