LK Yields Huge Fish in 1901

Big Fish Story

One of the largest fishes that has ever been caught near here was landed Saturday morning by P.H. Greathouse, near the mouth of Big Root.  We are reliably informed by Hon. R.A. Ferrell that it weighed 61 pounds and measured four feet.  Mr. Greathouse had quite an experience in getting it out of the water, and his rehearsal of it would be worth hearing.
