CHAl 1 AVQl A FISH
The Muskallonge the New York
Ivo -iinsn wit i ni npeoiraena Reenlvori
by .Mr. It. Itnbrock From Uli Broth*
rr at Jnmriilonn, IS'cw York,
Weighs Mlxiy Ponnd?.
There is no finer game fish In the
waters of the United States than the
muskallonge, which has made the Ash?
ing grounds of Chautauqua lake, New
York, famous the world over.
These llsh grow to fifty pounds In
weight, and will take rapaciously a
live bait or the spoon.
They are Indigenous to the water of
Northern New York, and, like the
Southern chub, black bass and pike,
tali.? the hook vigorously iu-tho spring
and fall months.
These fish are highly prized by epicu?
reans North, therefore they are sel?
dom seen in the Southern market.
Two magnificent specimens of plsces
muskallonge arrived here by express
yesterday from Chautauqua lake. They
were shipped by .Mr. Joan D. Babe ick,
of Jamestown, N. Y., to ins brother,
Mr. H. liabcock. who resides on the I
Campostella dairy farm in Norfolk
They were seen by a reporter of the
Vlrglnlan-Pilot at 1 IS Church sir. .
yesterday ufternoon. The muskal?
longe and the pike are very much alike 1
in habits, disposition and appearance.
In fact, many per-sonn who saw the
fish believed they were pike, and they
are undoubtedly of the same species.
The two llsh weighed about :io pounds
each, and measured 4s Inches :i<
length and 24 Inches in circumferanco. !
THEY AHE SPEARED.
; At this season large llsh are spear, i
in the Northern lake.-, ami these m ?si?
sters of the New York waters were;
taken by that methoa.
The Vlrglnlan-Pilot Is informed that
When the lake;; are frozen over a large
hou.se Is built on the ice, the sides
covered closely with blankets to exclude
the light. A hole Is cut in the Ice, anu
a decoy Ash is suspended about a foot
below the surface of the water. S ?
the muskallonge appeals in quest of a
meal. A dash is made at the dec y
llsh and the spearman drives Ins Bt<
prongs into the back of the fish and
drags the victim out on the. ice. Fre?
quently as many as a dozen fish are
taken by this means in a day.
A CHARACTERISTIC STORY.
The disciples of Isaac Walton will
appreciate the following, taken from
the Jam .-town (New York) Sun, and
written by "an old fisherman:"
"For the past four weeks some of
the largest and finest muskallonge have
been taken from Chautauqua lake with
hook and line, that have been seen f< .
years. Nearly every day the past three
weeks, specimens have been captured
I weighing all the way from one anil one
half pounds up to forty.
USED TO HE UNCOMMON.
It used to be an uncommon thing to
I see so many twenty-five and thir
ty, nnrl even forty pounders,
but now It seems to !>?_? an
evcry-day occurrence, and they are
taken with very light tackle on live
bait by amateurs at the art. These
amateur and professional artists have
captured and had unheard-of struggles
with muskallonge several yards long
with moss on their backs, teeth as long
as railroad spikes and jaws like unto a
One was hooked that had whiskers,
but he was too stout, and broke the I
