Stuffed fish, anyone?

Found in an old out of state newspaper, a fishing curiosity for your entertainment. Mainers have been making mone off of tourists in creative ways for years!!

A Maine Fish Story.

A fisherman in Winthrop tells that he caught a pickerel through the ice on Lake Marancook, last January, and found in its stomach a roll of undigested bank bills amounting to $300.

He thinks that the money was lost by a sporting man whose boat was upset on the lake more than a year ago. —Bangor Commercial.
