Marv Looney, left, told the Times this photo was taken in 1957 or ’58 when he and his fellow fisherman friends, the late Jollie Pace and Don Rackley, caught three limits of bass one night on Bull Shoals Lake while fishing out of what was then Pontiac Boat Dock. He believes they were fishing from a boat owned by Pace and another friend, John R. Sims, and it “probably had a 10 hp motor on it.” At the time, Looney and his wife, the late Delores Robbins Looney, owned the Rod and Gun Motel on W Highway near Pontiac, and Marv also taught school in Gainesville. He went on to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Arkansas and serve as president or chancellor of colleges around the country, retiring back to Pontiac after ending his career as chancellor of what is now Missouri State University-West Plains.
