Big stringer of bass


Billy “Big Bass” Wright caught this nice stringer of bass, at top, in 1989 and had his photo published in The News Reporter. Twenty-nine years later, he returned from his new home in Gulfport, Miss., and hit the jackpot again in a pond between Whiteville and Chadbourn while he was home for a Fourth of July family reunion. Wright caught about 30 bream and four bass with crickets and a rubber worm. It was a string of fish once again worthy to be published in The News Reporter. Wright said he would have no trouble lining up people to clean the fish since all were invited to a big family fish fry last Saturday.
