A 15 pound muskellunge fell for David Boyers' big Creek Chub plug on February 29 and then for nearly 25 minutes gave the fisherman a fun battle that finally ended when Frank Fox of Glenville managed to grab the tired lunker by the gills and lift it into the boat.

The state natural resources director has the power to prevent exploitation of minerals in state parks, the attorney general's office says. Asst. Atty. Gen. R. P. Curanti Jr. replied last Wednesday to an inquiry by the Natural Resources Director Ira S. Latimer, Jr., who said Carnegie Natural Gas Co. has oil leases in Cedar Creek State Park in Gilmer County. Latimer wondered if the firm could drill for oil and gas. Duranti quoted a state law that requires the natural resources director to maintain state park lands in their natural condition, "insofar as is practical," and says the director "shall not permit public hunting, the exploitation of the mineral or harvesting of timber thereon for commercial purposes."
