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. HIGHLY PRIZED. 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 county. BIG FISH. 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 crocodile. One was hooked that had whiskers, but he was too stout, and broke the I I hook."
