EXPRESSING THE CONGRATULATIONS OF THE MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO MR. GEORGE LIJEWSKI OF SUMMERVILLE FOR HIS AMAZING FEAT IN CATCHING A WORLD RECORD ARKANSAS BLUE CATFISH, WEIGHING IN AT ONE HUNDRED NINE POUNDS FOUR OUNCES, IN THE TAILRACE CANAL.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly were amazed and delighted to learn that Mr. George Lijewski of Summerville, while fishing for shad near the dam on the Tailrace Canal on Thursday, March 14, 1991, had a bite on his fishing tackle that forty-five exhausting minutes later resulted in the stalwart angler landing an enormous Arkansas blue catfish; and
Whereas, Mr. Lijewski, realizing immediately that he had a potential record catfish, raced back to shore, where the denizen of the deep bottomed out on the one hundred pound scale at Atkins Landing and so the district fisheries biologist for the Dennis Wildlife Center, Mr. Miller White, was called in with a Wildlife Department scale and determined that, sure enough, the fish weighed in at a record-setting one hundred nine pounds four ounces, breaking the previous world record of ninety-seven pounds and the South Carolina record of eighty-six pounds, four ounces; and
Whereas, Mr. Lijewski, a retired Charleston Naval Shipyard worker, demonstrated amply his prowess as a fisherman among fishermen and indeed the complete angler; and
Whereas, it is appropriate for the members of the General Assembly to pause in their deliberations to note such a marvelous achievement. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly express congratulations to Mr. George Lijewski of Summerville for his amazing feat in catching a world record Arkansas blue catfish in the Tailrace Canal, weighing in at one hundred nine pounds four ounces.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Mr. George Lijewski of Summerville, South Carolina.
