What a catch! One of the biggest catch of fish made in 1917 in the Gulf of Mexico is credited to Dr. and Mrs. B.H. Warren, of West Chester; Charles Stevenson, of Carapolis, and Alfred Twining, botanical authority and former editor of the Scranton Times. The group used rods, reels and spoon hooks to catch 450 pounds of kingfish, grouper, grunts and a shark.
