Alaska might seem like a funny place for northern pike, but judging by the one an Eskimo carried into the airfield at Anchorage, the tundra of southwestern A In ska must be the home of all great northerns The pike was longer than hi* captor, and all Don could get out of the Eskimo was, "Katum man." which he repated over and over again. Could be anothehr pike fable, but the fish was real. The northern and walleye season is in full swing all over the continent now, so we might clear up u few problems for you pikers. In general, the walleyew pike is u lish of the deep water and rock ledges, while the great northern prefers the weedy bays and more shallow regions. During warm weather this will mean that you usually fish deep for walleyes and cast or troll a wobbling spoon, plug, or minnow over the weeds for northern pike. There is nothing hard and fast about the fishing, however. Wall-' eyes occasionally feed around the mouths of streams emptying into lakes. They are most apt to do this in the evening or at night, and at such times they may Ue taken by casting in fairly shallow water. Most of the time it is more effective to still fish or troll for them. The favorite bait for sill! fishing is a minnow, and the most used lure in-many areas for troll- Ing, is a June Bug Spinner, behind which is attachcu a minnow or a good-sized gob of night craw lers. During midday, the lure should practically bump along the bottom, and walleyes are oflen taken in these locations late in the day or at night in hot weather. They will strike artificial lures, such as plugs and wobbling spoons, but these ordinarily must be fished deep for best results. The most famous lure for northern pike is :i red and white wobbling spoon, and it is usually cast along the edge of the weeds or into the bays and coves.

Nixon (3-3) vs Byrd will also take largo plugs, although I think moat fisherman make a mistake in using lures that are too big. I In trolling for them, it is usu-1 ally best to use a fairly large minnow without a sinker, and occasionally it is necessary to use a bobblcr to keep the minnow from getting down into the weeds anc tangling up. Troll around the edge of the weeds and over submerged weed beds. The reason why pike arc inclined to be inactive during hot weather is generally due to the! abundance of natural food and the higher than average temperatures In the marginal areas of the lake where pike usually forage. In fishing for both walleyes nnd great northerns,, you can use the same tackle with slight variations. The rod should be a bait caster with which you can cast or troll as the occasion suggests. H can be of bamboo or steel, whichever you prefer, and should be about 5'ii feet in length and ratlvi stiff- ish. The reel should be a ciuadruplc- multiplying one and you should have ample line somewhat heavier than is used for bass fishing; it should be 12-pound test or he stronger if necessary.

Now he trotted easily forward, reined around and fell In beside Blalse. He spoke low. "You could've been blowcd right out of the saddle." Blaisa grinned. "I never thought of it. 1 had to prove to them I didn't set the fire." Thcni'?" Hal asked softly. "Or her? 1 ' Them!" Blaisc repeated emphatically and a moment later wondered if ho was so certain. They rode at a fast pace. Blaisc and Hal In front, the Thatchers ajid Raikes following. They reached tho ranch road and Blaisc led the way deep Into the hills, finally climbing up to his canyon and drawing rein before the remains of the house. Thatcher and Rcnnie looked around, missing none of tho destruction. Finally Thatcher dismounted. Blalso led htm to the bushes where tho burned oil can lay. Thatcher studied it as Ronnie cwne up tho slope to them. She stopped before Blalso. "Wo wronged you. "I'm sorry." "I apologize, too, Mr. Randell," Thatcher said quietly. "We might have made a bad mistake. But why would Leonis want to do this?" Blaise explained the use to which Leonis had put the ranch during the prison years. Rcnnie watched Blaisc closely, then asked directly and bluntly, "And did you murder a man?" "No." "Rennle," Thatcher cut in, "I think I need a talk with Mr. Randell. Could you come with us to Las Montanas, sir?" He smiled wryly. "You will not bo ordered out again." "I could. Why?" Thatcher's jaw grew hard. "I think I'm going to take a hand In the local situation. I'd like to hear more of your story before I decide which side i will join." Just at twilight they came to the meadow and ridge on which the ranch stood. Blaise saw how close L«« Mont&nas had come to de structlon- "You hftd a hot fight," Blalse •aid. Thatcher needed grimly. "Very hot W« thought it was all going. It will ruin everything for years to come." "Next year, after the rains, the grass will grow," Blaise assured him. "I'va seen U happen before. 1 Th* Mrvftnt nut them at the door. Thatcher bad them shown to a pedroom as large as the bunk- boiuu back at the ranch, the windows overlooking the blacken* Cftnyons to the aouth and west. Ha gently U«t«4 <&« bed after the MNTVMt left tn4 looked around at th« rich wallpaper, Ut« tbick drapes at the windows, the heavy dresser and chairs. -My Mood ain't foin* to take this, partner. Sow could one man (At HO 18'Mi!^ HMSMy?" -Not ra»chU»t in the** parts," aAtswer*} «n4 aat down l*i«* vearily. A breeze came in the window, bringing the scent of burned vood and brush. He looked around he room. "Leonis would be against someone bigger'n him, if Thatcher took a hand on our side." "It's about' time that someone ive us a hand," Hal said dryly and dropped on the bed. In tlie library, next evening, Blaise told the story of his quarrel vith Chavez, of the trouble svith iconls and the raids in the Valley and how he had tried to fight back and have his friends stand firm 'or their own rights. Then he told of the killing, the sudden arrest, ;rial and his sentence to San Quentin and Hie years ho spent there. Ho finished and, for a time, Jierc was silence in the room, fhatchcr sat listening intently, rtennie had edged to the front of her chair as she watched Blaise, eyes wide with understanding and compassion. 'Pardoned, and it took years. tt took money, too?" "All 1 had, practically." Blaise nodded. "I'd had some good years before Loonis pinned the Chavez murder on me. He didn't want anyone taking up land in tho Valley." "The land, you say, was open to homestead. How could Leonis keep anyone from filing?" "He couldn't," Blaisc answered swiftly, "but he could give them so much trouble that they'd never last long, enough to prove up. Leonis had somo of his riders file and then he planned to buy from them when they had full title. But that's long and slow, and others came in... my friends in the Valley and I died down there. Leonis always figured the land should have been his." f Thatcher looked toward Rennie to note her reaction. His eyes widened and he looked sharply back at Bluiso, then his glance shot to Hal. "And Mr. King? He's never been fully explained." "My friend," Blaise said simply Thatcher's eyes warmed slightly. "In the West a sufficient explanation," he agreed, "But I'm from the East, and we haven't been that generous in « couple ol gen trations that I know of," "Your bad luck," BJalse salt with a grin. He sobered, "Hal and me are together, trying to build up the rancho." •Tell the rest, Blaise," Hal cut in dryly. "I served a term for robbery. 1 don't want to go back with the old bunch that tangled me up before. Blaise asked me to throw in with him. I accepted." "Guilty?" Thatcher asked abruptly. "Of making a fool mistake ant running with the wrong crowd. I learned my lesson. It's « (real start down here." •Thanks to Mr. Randell," Rennie said softly. Hal turned to her aod smiled as he nodded. "Thanks to Blaise," be agreed, Tftatcher leaned forward and sIsppAc} frifl fruj^iy MI hSj "It sound* like a straight story ft W^Hfc MlWftMMiA itf Randell. My daughter has told me low you handled the outlaws who; ricd to rob the stage. That's inij 'our favor. Now, you think Leonis;; iet the fire?" <\ "I'm certain of it." I "It threatened us," Thatcher said ilowly. "If Leonis is land hungry,.; hen he'll probably attack Last >Iontanas once he's driven-you oft is and made sure of the Valley." "Maybe," Blaise said dubiously. 'The drought hit him hard and he's lost a lot of beef... land hungry with it." -4 "Market's picking up," Thatcher said shortly. "It won't support >ig ranches like the old days, but t will pay a few to go back to cattle. It's Leonis' chance. Yours. :oo, and Leonis will know it. He'll try to knock you out again." Blaisc had a growing admiration 'or the old man. Thatcher might. 3C from tho Blast and not too fa-> nillar with cattle, but his forecast seemed accurate. Thatcher leaned forward. All right, Randcll, I'll go the whole way. I propose you and I ,vork together to fight Leonis. Between us, we should be able to hold him off. Agreed?" "I'd like to, sir," Blaise said slowly, "but I have to tell you something else." , Thatcher's eyes narrowed, but he said nothing, waiting. Blaisa looked embarrassed but deter^ mined. 'I checked on the sale of my land to you by tax title. I still have a month in which to redeem. I'm giving you notice that I will." Thatcher „_ laughed, a relieved sound. "Randell, I want that sec-, tion, but I guess it belongs to you. I'll accept the redemption payment and deed it back. It's your legal] right. But that has nothing to do with Leonis." Blaise sighed gustily and grinned. "I figured you might giv« me a flght about that land." "I make quick decisions, Randell. I've had to in my business. You'r* a case in point." "Me?" "You've two Jobs to do. You must clear yourself of that Chavej business.., that's your probl You've Leonis to keep In boun ... I can help you there. But onef the situation is such that you can ranch without danger of raids or burnings, and once you're cleared of murder, I'll back you financially In cattle raising." ^^' "Back me!" Blalse Jerked erect Thatcher nodded and pointed Ml cigar at Blaise. "I think you're worth the gam* ble. But you've got a job befgrf I'd advance you a cent. Otherwise* it would be bad business, and w? one ha* ever yet justly called mt a fool." Thatcher felt that they had c«v« ered the pressing questions and h« suggested that Rennie play ftv them. They went into anottef room wher« she played the plan* lor nearly an hour, alulae am and &en & a sultry voice.
