LANDED AFTER STRUGGLE: There have been bigger pike speared this season by local anglers, but it is doubtful if there have been any bigger pike caught on a hook and line than the one which Russell Morton, 1620 Pear St., is shown holding in the above picture.
Morton made the catch, which weighed 13 1/4 pounds, at Little Silver Lake near Hamburg Sunday. He was fishing with a tip-up using a large minnow. He was forced to finally stick his hands down in the water and get hold of the gills before he could lift his prize out of the hole.
