TUESDAY, JtJMfi 3, 1952 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Country Wild HAROLD BRAND Slmdp Trees Wanted Many persons enjoyed outings at Pore Mfirquolte pnrk on Decoration Dny. Shade trees were nt. n premium for outdoor enthusiasts who combined ptcnlcing with fishing, boaling, baseball and other sports. The grounds near the river were still damp and soggy from the recent flood. High water marks on the trees showed that, the water had been about six feel deep between the highway and the river. A serious accident nearly occurred in I he river, near the park, when two outboard craft collided. The bow of one boat ran up on top of the mitlscction of another croft just, missing the passengers, The bouts were pushed apart and the pilots continued on thoir way. FlHliing Trl|i S. L. Moore, realtor, snirt that he and a group of friends recently enjoyed a three-day fishing trip at Bull Shoals reservoir in Arkansas. In the party were E. C. Iloeferl. rejired auto dealer, Sid Drake, tire dealer, Dr. L. E. Allen and his brother, E>r- G. I-. holn dentists. Dr. G. I. Allen hooked the largest fish, a Sis-pound bass. The men caught many bluoglll including some on surface plugs. Moore related an amusing incident, that occurred while Dr. G. I. Allen was casting a plug for bass: "Allen cast the plug in front of a large frog sitting on the bank. The scared frog jumped about three feet straight up in the air.. After landing, the frog became curious and approached the plug, inspected it, and then backed up. The frog did this three times during three successive casts. Apparently the frog was trying to make up his mind just what kind of object landed near him and whether it might be good to eat. The area was abounding in frogs and many were caught by hunters and fishermen during our stay at the reservoir. There were also many water moccasins in the area. I saw several that must have been blind as they would continually swim and bump into obstructions in the water." Raised Fishing Nets Carl Bergstrom, telephone cable supervisor, and his brother, Al, of Flint, Mich., who is visiting him, went out in a boat on Alton lake with W. T. (Red) Sherman on a recent evening to raise some hoop nets. Sherman raised a net that contained four buffalo, two of which weighed about 15 pounds. . Sherman became excited because of the size of the 'fish and entangled his two visitors in the net as he emptied the fish into the boat. Still excited, Sherman replaced the net but fed out 120 feet of anchor line from the inside of the reel instead of the outside. It was a slow process taking 20 minutes time instead of a normal few seconds. Al Bergstrom related that be often formerly towed 1000 to 1400 feet of logs across a lake In Michigan with a small scow. There was such little freeboard on the scow that Bergstrom and his crew would often spend most of their, trip bailing. Many times,.his crew would quit after one such trip.
