Stu won't get you there quite as fast as those B-52 jets that flew around the world the other day, but in a comfortable four-placer he'll put you down at or very near your lake, with substantially more time for fishing. Stu's rates are economical enough to be interesting. As a matter of fact, Stu Albright has flown quite a number of local sportsmen northwards in recent years. For a flight up in the neighborhood of International Falls or northern Wisconsin, for instance, he takes you up, flies back home, and then returns for you at the specified date — all for the regular charter mileage. Stu has flown fishermen up as far north as Saskatchewan, and that makes a colorful and interesting air journey. Along about Minot, No. Dak., Stu radios to that airport, announces himself as flying over, gives his credentials, etc., and from there on Minot clears his way. They radio Canadian authorities, give Stu's flight plan through Canada, and then as he proceeds, Canadian airports give Wm the right-of-way. They just have to be sure it isn't some strange plane from Mars. Stu makes the Saskatchewan trip in about seven hours, dropping down once or twice for fuel and leg-stretching. International Falls, Minn., takes about 2V& hours. Yes, the price includes your fishing tackle and gear. 3 Ibs. 3 02. Lake TVaversr*, 19&S Travel*! CounAy 3 Ibs. 2 o*.

I understand Harry gets everything from guppies te sea-going whale* from his Okoboji dock, in season. * * * Another helpful tip t 0oi from a local shoe dealer should be of interest to hunters and fishermen, where any walking is involved. He says it helps to clip your toenails before-hand. This stops "toe torture" and prevent* holes in socks. However, he odds: "Do not cut toe-nails thfi night before, as that may make the toee sore. Do it a couple of days before." * * * Lem Kaereher. publisher of a well-known weekly newspaper at Ortonville, Minn., sent me on an interesting and true clipping from his paper. Mr Kaereher also happens to be an Associated Press correspondent in his area, and this story, I understand, was put on the AP wire, and publish* ed quite widely. Lem was in his office when he got a phone call .from an Ortpn- ville bar, and he rushed over to see what was happening. It seems half a dozen or so men had gathered there after a day's hunting m the vicinity, and as they were relaxing at the bar, a Little garter snake glided across the floor. One fellow spied it, called out, and the entire patronage of the place took one look, set their glasses down, and left the place right now. WlCftRHY Guns Ammunition Try "Coast" For What U Need! RIFLES — SHOTGUNS SHELLS OUTDOOR SUPPLIES Always at Typical "Coast" Lower Prices COAST-TO-COAST Store Ed Wolf, Owner I had some dope in my last column about Ice Fishing, and ended up by saying they were getting crappies up to 3-lbs. out of the ice at Fox Lake, Minn. Among others, Chet Williams took me to task about this, saying crappies of three pounds were a great rarity, if at all. Al Buchanan was another who questioned my reporting. Well, to look these fellows in the face I had to secure "proof". Locally, 1 learned from Don Cook that he had caugnt a 3-lb. crappie at Big Chief Lake, Wise., and Don said if I didn't believe it to ask Ken Harris. I also wrote to both the Iowa and Minnesota conservation commissions about the matter, and have had replies from both, E. B. Speaker of the Iowa Conservation Commission writes to tell me that he has in his possession photos of a 3 Ib. 9oz. crappie taken at Corydon City Reservoir, and a 4 Ib .4 o?, crappie caught by a Corning, Iowa, fisherman— in Iowa. Lake Odessa in Iowa has such crappies. . I also heard from -W. J. ScJdmore, Re- 1 search Biologist, State of Minnesota. Ho writes: "J am happy to assure that you are right in contending we do have crappies here in Minn, which reach or exceed the 3-lb. "mark." Mr Scidmore follows that with the following data, so here, Chet and Al, it is; Crappies — 3 Ibs. or Over Weigh* Place Date 5 Ib. VermilUpn River 1940 Dakota County 4 Ibs. 4 oz. Tanner?

DIAMOND'S SURPLUS Thinking that some ol our lo cal hunters might like to have some data on a "different"; of hunting, with some reel game involved, I wrote up to Carl Ands erson, a guide and outfitter at Lignite, Alaska, to get information on the Spring Bear Hunts held up there,, on famed Kodiak island. Some of our moose* hunters might be interested in going up and getting a bear, including one of our Algona Becker's. Here's what Mr Anderson had to say: "Thanks for your inquiry on the spring bear hunt. The starting place is Anchorage, where you get your license ($50), and such stuff as rubber boots if you don't have any. That is where I meet you and we fly to Naknek and then to Port Moltef, Bring your gun (3006 or 300 Magnum) field glasses, earners, some warm underwear, a down coat, warm gloves, sleeping bag and mattress. Also long raincoat with a hood on it," "These Brownies den on. the mountain sides and the way we hunt is to get up on 9 hill for a good view and then glass the country around. I know where there are several peachy dens and I have sat and watched these big brqwnies come out In the Spring." "These hunts are of two weeks duration, and I require a deposit of oae-third. The price is $14.00, for each hunter. Please make your reservation early, as I have to make Jots of preparations for a hunt of this kind," "I hope you and your down there in Iowa will to take this hunt with rae, feel confident you will g$ back with an extra large brownie," If interested, drop a Jine to Cad at Lignite, Alaska, and tell him Clem sent you.
