The heat Johnson and Ariel Boone Carl Holmes By JAMES CREWS has made conditions poor during the middle of the day. I talked with Don from Don's Sport Shop at Hinton, and he told me fishing has been fair during the late evening hours and early morning. Bluestone Lake has been producing nice catches of bass late and early. Top water lures have been very productive late in the evening. A few bass over five pounds are still being caught. Summersville Lake is in great shape, and smallmouth bass fishing has been very good. However, the walleye fishing has been poor. Fish- ing at the lake has been good after 6:30 in the evening. The hot weather has put the fish down dur- ing the day. On the Local Front Russell Johnson and Ariel Boone are shown with a catfish they caught in Sherwood Lake. The flathead cat- fish weighed 2 pounds, 8 ounces and was caught on a nightcrawler. Carl Holmes caught a largemouth bass that was 17 inches long and weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces.

Chan Whitt World Junior Champ 9-Bailer: Chan Whitt Of Lewisburg By Sean Canale Once again Lewisburg's 16-year- old Chan Whitt is crowned "1990 Junior World 9-Ball Champion." A two-day tournament held July 10 and 11 in Downingtown, Pennsylva- nia, at Pete Sinkler's "Cue Corner," presented sixteen competitors from all over the nation to display their skills. The favorite was Chan. He was crowned in 1988 as the 9- Ball Champion, and is the only junior to win the title twice. Day one was successful ;or Chan, as he played two matches and won them both. Chan Whitt played against Nathan Hadad, who had defeated him in 1989. But with the took of a winner, and the determination of a cham- pion, young Chan defeated Hadad. After this match, Chart went 2-0, giv- ing him time to wait for Day Two. Chan's success went into overdrive. His first match was against Maryland's Mike Wilson, but nothing was going to keep Chan from the title. Next in line was Virginia's Max Eberle. Chan, with a champion's experience defeated the young Vir- ginian. Everything fell in its proper perspective and the next match was the final and deciding one. Once again it's Max Eberle. Chan defeats Eberle to .make him tile 1990 Junior World 9-Ball Champion. With his fa- ther by his side, Chan is unstopable in the world of billiards. The next step for Chan is July 17 where he'll be defending his title at the BCA Na- tional 8-Ball Tournament in Louis- ville, Kentucky. The new shop is not much larger CharlelH.
