WILSON (INVENTOR) AL. WILSON TROLLING SPOONS and SPINNERS "BEST BY TEST" 693 Mission St., San Francisco ANGLER CATCHES SAME HUGE FISH TEN TIMla.S Fishing on the Magothy River in Maryland, J. J. Snfith,caught a 26- inch pike. It was placed in the live box and that was put overboard. He cast again. Soon the cork went un- der, and another pike, as big as the first, was landed. Thus Smith fished for several hours. Each time he pull- ed up a pike. At last nine had been placed in the live box and one lay in the bottom of the boat. Satisfied, Mr. Smith pulled in the box. There was not a pike in it. In the bottom the wire mesh hac'l rotted through. Smith studied his lone pike. Says he, "There were ten holes from hooks in that pike's head. t caught the same fish ten times, so help me mackerel.
