BASEBALL FIELD NARROWS Alflona (let.) Hpf)»r fitf Molne»-7 fhursefdy, M«iy 2, MHTING FISHING * by CLEM ERLANDER TIP.GF.fHE«WEEK : When take pictures of those strings of fish y6u Will catch this coming season try ham- thing It up. Instead of mugging the camera while holding a itfing of fifth across your chest, try holding the string above your head, look proudly up at it — and laugh wide Op»nl And very important, have the picture- taker get up as close as possible with the camera. * * » . A friend of a friend of mine recently returned from the faraway country of India, whore I understand he tried some fishing. On his return, he explained that over there it isn't unusual to see a woman and a mule hitched together. My friend observed that it's not so unusual over here, either, come to think about it. though I knew how to use it. An attendant walked up and asked: "What streams have you been plying lately, Mister?" Astonished, thinking I had a trolling rod in my hands, I carefully ptlt it back on the rack and then asked the price. He replied: $48.50." If all you've got is a $2.95 prewar metal rod, how in the world do you 'graduate' to something like that? * * •• I also saw a boat — made from glass, the man said — that was capable of speeds up to 90 mile; per hour on water. I saw fish baits totally unlike anything 1 aver thought existed, such as a pork rind EEL with hinged parts, designed to catch the monstrous marita rays of the Pacific Ocean. One thing I loved, however, was the 15-minute conversation held with if- representative of "Canoe Trips In Canada." What a wonderful vacation — and what A wonderful way to acquire a hernia! We Can't Catch 'Em For U When Hugo Gade talks aboui bast'oall or fishing, I generally believe what he has to say. In the case of baseball, Hugo's preseason remarks about the Milwaukee Braves nnd their success thus far in the early season have- been pretty well borne out. So When he called me over to take the picture above, showing himself and a 3 or 4 pound Northern, J believed-it-sure enough, b*t I mu;;t admit I was a "oft dumfounded. Hugo said: "Take the picture", which I did, but in a case like this, since the season is not yet open, one has to worry about the game warden, Frank Tellicr. But We'll Help U Do It This Coming Season From Our COMPLETE TACKLE STOCK Try "Coast" For What U Needl RIFLES — SHOTGUNS SHELLS OUTDOOR SUPPLIES , Always at Typical "Coast" Lower .Prices COAST-TO-COAST Store Ed Wolf, Owner , Algeria's Sports "Spot" It's BECKER'S Sporting Goods Store Big Fish Days Coming Up Soon! Get the Habit of Dropping in at BECKER'S To See What's New. UP-TO-DATE FISHING & OUTDOOR INFORMATION AT — BECKER'S I questioned Hugo about this, and he had a ready answer. It seems to me, somehow, that baseball and fishing must go together — lucky in one, lucky in the other. Anyhpw, Mr Gade salemrj- ed stated that he was down by. the river looking over the prospects of good bullhead fishing when, as he leaned down closer to the water Jo get a good look, this Northern rushed, up } and with a big jump tore out of the water and landed in one of his real- overall pockets. No tackle, no hook was being used, and apparently no game laws were broken. Seemingly, it is just on.- of those incidents that happen to fishermen. Quoting Hugo: "When I looked back up after hearing this 'plunk', I happened to t'oel this Northern in my back pocket. Here I was just examining the possibilities of bullhead fishing and a fish jumped in my pocket. I looked at him, just a small Northern, and he loolu-ii so lona- some 1 thought I'd curry him home, and 1 don't im\m home plate." (I't'i'sonally, I'm betting that the Milwaukee Braves, even if they're a pennant winner, won't bring home the World Series bacon they just have toy many crazy fans). * • « I attended the Minneapolis Sportsnu'Ms Show a few woeks ago, the first of such rvi'iils 1 ever witnessed, and I must say I came away wit*, an utterly new and awesome respect for sportsmen of whom with some imagination I '-'lass myself a member. I sauntered up to 'a booth wher«> ti\ey Wfc'i'f displaying about 200 fishing rods, seleeted one and bcijari whipping it around iu..t a* As the "Zero Hour" — May 15th — approaches, there is surprisingly little real fishing news aVSiljSble, Evei"ywhere *in Algona, and throughout the county, fisherman are getting their gear in shape, getting their wives in in shape, getting their wives calm, nnd oiling up for the much talking. So in the absence of real spot fishing news, 1 thought a little Questionnaire feu- fishermen might be in order. This set of questions, which I have prepared, is guaranteed to prove you're a real educated fisherman, and for all who send me their answers I have a special "certificate" that admits you to membership in a new exclusive fishermen's organization. Here are the questions: (1) What fish, besides his real name, is also known by the name "Linesides,?" (2) In what state was the world's record Smallmouih. Bass taken? %. (3) Why is a Perch unlike a Sunfish? (4) What fish, if you were on a northern lake, would you rather catch for its sporting qualities, but would rather noi eat? (5) When fishing *or Bluegills, what type of bait is best: Small minnows, worms, grasshoppers, crickets, pork, bread crumbs, piece of wei- ner? (6) If invited to a Canadian outpost camp in August to fish for lake trout, what kind of line would you take, and how much? (?) What fish is most easily caught by letting the bait sink to the very bottom (of a mud-bottomed river) . >. . and what same fish is Actually an eating delicacy?

They all know me here. Remember a special "token for all who send me their .answers." S6me "fishing e6tt»mnis!s" have all the luck! ... they're actually going to be on the lakes when season opens May 15. Bob Brown, Fort Dodge Messenger, will open the season at Ely, Minn., and Reis Tuttle, will fish at Mille Lacs, .Gull and Leech Lakes up there for the opening. The fishing columnists are having a bi£ whing-ding at Mille Lacs just before the opening. Even Forrest EyashevSki and Bud Wilkinson will be there. Yours truly will be casting off the bridge below town. • * • A couple of last minute tips for season-opener fishermen, (i) A 5 to 6 foot monofilament leade; lied directly to the lure gets fish better than any other hook-up. (2) Just for a change, try fishing with a barbless hook. May surprise you. Swea City 9-8 Victor; Lakota Swea City — Swea City's diamond squad won its first game in three starts this season by topping Lakota 9-8 in an exlra- inning ball game here Thursday. Sophomore-liurler Gary Johnson led the Trojan nine by fanning ten batters while allowing six hits, and further helped himself by belting a homer with one on in the first inning. Vince Pavik, who later relieved Johnson on the mound, also homered, and accounted for the winning run with a bases-loaded triple in the bottom pf the eighth. Pitcher:-; for Lakota were Rippentrop and Junketneier. Junkeineier and Brack homered for the losers.
