Kenneth Ervine caught a whopping big large-mouth bass August 14 in a farm pond. It weighed four and three quarter pounds and measured 20 and a half inches. It had a blue gill in its gullet – two fish at one catch. Then last Thursday, he and his wife were returning from a fishing trip to Sherwood Lake and killed three copperheads at different places on the road, all good sized. Howard Shinaberry also killed a copperhead last Tuesday. Forest McLaughlin killed two copperheads and Kenneth Hill killed a black rattler recently, all on Browns Mountain.
