Woods and Waters An outdoor blog by John McCoy

Some guys have all the luck…

By the time Jim Dunlap of Alum Creek, W.Va., returned from a recent fishing trip to Florida, he’d already caught a 50-inch dolphin (the fish, not the mammal) and a 7-foot sailfish that weighed at least 100 pounds.

That probably would have satisfied most fishermen. But shortly after Dunlap returned to the Mountain State, he went out and caught a 24 1/4-inch smallmouth bass — nearly a stare record for length!

The full story of Dunlap’s remarkable spring ran on the Woods & Waters page in the June 22 Sunday Gazette-Mail.
