Fish Tales

Maxwell Elementary kindergartener Jacob Wood caught a record white bass while fishing with his grandfather Barney Walling. The 2.76-lb. fish is the largest white bass on record from Clarks Hill Lake.

Ed Bettross, a fish biologist with the Department of Natural Resources, came to Maxwell on Tuesday to give Jacob a certificate recognizing his accomplishment. He also gave Jacob a new fishing pole as a reward for breaking the record.

Mr. Bettross also made a presentation to Becky Swann's class about how fishing is family fun. After the presentation, Jacob got to show off the mounted record fish to his classmates.

Mr. Walling and Jacob hope to start a fishing club in the near future. They plan to meet at state parks to hold cookouts and fish together.
