COLUMBIA — Ona Potter, 96, and her daughter, Wanda Holt, 72, have gone fishing at the Little Dixie Lake Conservation Area for more than two decades.
"It's usually just us that come out there," Potter said.
It was their appetites that first brought Potter and Holt to Little Dixie Lake.
"We used to go out to the concession stand before they tore it down," Holt said. "Then we were messing around one Sunday and started to come out here to fish, and been coming ever since."
Holt has a son and two daughters, along with four grandchildren, but she said she always has time to spend with her mother.
"We spend almost every day together," Holt said. "We live about a half-mile apart in Hatton."
Holt's grandchildren are a big source of pride for her. Now that her children are grown up and her grandson is in college, there's more time for fishing.
Potter is thankful for every moment she gets to spend with her daughter.
"She's the only child I got," Potter said. "All I have to do is holler, and there she is."
