(Terry) Mayttn, also Grovelin street. Secret agent 172 said that when the gas and air Hi* on the motor's gas tank broke, the senior Leonard hooked them up oppositely. Whrn they went to start the motor it wouldn't fire. It was hours later On a recent occasion I was that Leonard discovered the error fishing near Cockrell Hollow at [reversed the connection and got Batchtown and landed some small ! underway. Now just who do you pan fish on my fly rod. Then I ! think is a nominee to the Boners hooked and landed a 4Mrpound catfish and a few minutes later landed another that weighed 8% pounds, and was 29 inches long. It took about 25 minutes to get the latter fish close enough to the boat to net It. I have been using a fly rod for about 30 years. "I believe that this experience was the biggest thrill I have ever had on any fishing trip. I have a cabin at Batchtown and have caught larger fish on trot lines Club?

Stuckey had one strike tear up his reel and Mrs. Stuckey nearly 1 o s t a large perch she hooked that was struck at several times by a muskie during the retrieve. "We caught lots of P an fish as well as four northerns and five walleyes, Mrs. Stuckey said. "We had a wonderful time. The weather was cool and pleasant and a fire was needed mornings and evenings." Had Motor Difficulties On a recent overnight fishing trip to Pohlman Slough near Grafton, a group of anglers had out- near Grundy Center, Iowa. "The animal least 1,000 or more miles away from it normal and natural habitat." Madson said. "They are very rare in the United States. I doubt if more than 10 such animals could be found in the wilds. A farmer saw the animal and enlisted the aid of a neighbor to shoot it. The wolverine weighed 23 pounds and had toes missing on three of its four paws where it had escaped traps. We surmised that someone was traveling with the wolverine purchased in the north and it escaped from its cage near the area where It was shot.." On "the way home, the men floa^ ed on the Buffalo River in Arkansas 2Mt days. They saw no other persons, campsites, nor other signs of civilization. But the bass fishing was tremendous. The men landed at least 50 small mouth bass which they released. "I never saw so many bass In Batting (baaed on 140 or more at bats) - Mays, San rt*ne»s«o, .348: Larker. Los Angeles. .345.
