Don Thomas of Leon caught a 25-inch. seven-pound, 12-ounce small- mouth bass with an artificial lizard and six-pound spinning line. The former record was a 24.5-inch smallmouth caught in 1970 on the New River. David Robinson, assistant wildlife chief, pointed out that the weight record for a smallmouth bass is 9.75 pounds. That record was set in 1971 on the South Branch of the Potomac River. According to Robinson, two other records have been broken this year - those for the walleye and largemouth buffalo sucker. Fred Cline of Daniels set the walleye length record with a 35 -inch, 15-pound catch at Kanawha Falls near Gauley Bridge. The former record was a 34.75-inch catch made in 1946 on the Greenbrier River. Hobert Null of Davisville caught the record buffalo sucker in the Little Kanawha River. Null's catch was 41 inches in length and weighed 38 pounds. It shattered the previous record of 33 inches and 30 pounds set in 1970 on Tygart Creek near Parkersburg. "Thomas, Cline and Null will each receive the new West Virginia Trophy Fish Citation Award and official West Virginian State Record Certification for their outstanding catches," said Robinson.
