BIG CATCH OF CAT FISH.
Athens Fishermen Get Big Haul in Oglethorpe.
Messers. Wellborn and Marion DuBose have returned from a fishing trip to Oglethorpe, and not only report a big time, but bring evidence of genuine fisherman's luck.
They were fishing with trot lines in Edward's pond in Oglethorpe county and Wednesday made a catch of a blue cat weighing 26 pounds, another weighing 12 and about fifty pounds of smaller fish.
This catch has seldom been equalled in this section of the country and proves that there are "good fish in the seas as ever were caught."
The brothers did not indicate how long their trotline was to bring home such a haul of fish, and there was no announcement of a large fish fry at their family home on the 26th.
