Published 7:51 pm Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Sarah Johnson of the Talquin Hookers took an 8.10 while her hubby, Dallas, only took a 5.0.

The next boat in that day Mrs. Chalet took a couple of dinks. These catches are not good for hamonius matrimony in the home.

The Talquin Hookers fished Saturday with the following results: First place went to Barbray Wachtor 12.75, second to Lonnie Walsh 7.04, third went to Pam Marlow 5.75. Mrs Wachtor had big fish, 6.58.
