Flour bags, burlap sacks, tin tubs, milk cans and beds of trucks were used to carry the fish homo and to market. A large gold fish was displayed in a glass jar in Jerry Liner's store that had been caught in the lake. Fish "stories were going the com plete route regarding the size of fish that had been caught. It was report ed that carp weighing over thirtv pounds were taken out of the waters and eFght pound bass were common place; Thp storios were tupported with proper evidence in most cases as it was quite improbable that the "largest fish' could get away since most of the fish were floundering helplessly in the canals and along the bank of the lake.
