W.F. De Wolf, 7011 Monroe St., Englewood, Chicag, writes;

“I must tell you of my great “fish catch” with one of “Pflueger’s Luminous Frogs.” I caught 40 Black Bass in two mornings and one evening fishing. The largest weighed 6 lbs. 12 oz., measured 22 in. in length, a 14 in. girth, with mouth 4 in. across (when open). Several of the weighed 5 and 5 1/2 lbs. each, quite a number 3 1/2, 4 and 4 1/2, and a great many 2 to 3 lbs.

“The little town where this catch was made, and all it’s fishermen were wild when they saw the string of fish. I had them, myself and boatman photographed. The 7 ponder tired my boatman and myself so that we sat and looked at each other for a moment or two after landing him, neither having a word to say. The sight of such a monster lying on the bottom of the boat, and the thought that we had really succeeded in capturing him, rendered us too full for utterance.”
