Little History lesson for ya that 'Might' be True lol

A common story told about West Virginia is the folktale about how it got the nickname 'West, By God, Virginia'. According to the legend, a West Virginia native who was being inducted into the US Army during the First World War (some versions make it as early as the Spanish-American War), was repeatedly asked by his induction officer, 'What part of Virginia?' And the soldier, finally getting fed up with the confusion, said 'Not Virginia! West Virginia! West, by God, Virginia!'. This story, whether true or not, has entered American folklore.

Capt. Kim - Speckle Trout Guide Service
Capt. Kim Di Betta has over 40yrs fishing experience in the Delacroix area. I like to say i go catching instead of fishing. I fish all live bait (shrimp, minnows, croakers). You will fish aboard a 25ft by 9.6 wide stable Parker center console.
