It might lake a bit mote work to get those fish, therefore, here era a law good tips for Plus- Calling.

In the photo above, you sec the 'Big Fish Contest" window at Larry's Recreation, which was trimmed in person by Craig Clark of StorzJ3rewing Company in Omaha. Craig made a special trip here to do the job, and a number of local sports-minded firms, including Becker's Sporting Goods, Kohlhaas Hardware, Diamond's Surplus, and Ed Wolf's Coast-To-Coast loaned outdoor "fixtures" for the display. There's a lot of folks connected with this 'Big Fish Contest'— helping to put it on, that is. All of these good folk are chipping in on the prizes, and if you guys and gals who are handy with a rod just knew about some of this stuff that is coming, you'd sure handle those fish with care, and bring 'em in. Algeria's Sports "Spot" It's BECKER'S Sporting Goods Store Big Fish Days Coming Up Soon I Get the Habit of Dropping in at BECKER'S To See What's New. UP-TO-DATE FISHING & OUTDOOR INFORMATION AT — BECKER'S I guess what I'm trying to say is that the "Opener" wasn't any too good — far less ttian expected due to wet, cold weather.- In fact, the best Hugo Gade could do was to get 47 bullheads in one Ivy — little two and three- inchers, none of which we would accept for the Contest. But things arc looking up, for Mrs Fred Gebken of Burt brought ih a swell-looking walleye that grossed 2 Ibs., 12 oz., and looked bigger. She won a combination minnpwbucket-picnic cooler with that fine walleye. Almost everybody is gonna get a free prize. Among the good 'fishing folk' connected with putting on this 'Big Fish Contest', aside from this column, are fellows like Robert Hart Storz, of the Storz Brewing Company, who is most conservation-minded. Bud Morck terms him a very fine sportsman, and of course, we are very happy to give him this "plug" inasmuch as he is donating some fine prizes. There is also Homer E. Circle, public relations vice- president of Jas. Heddpn's Sons, one of the country's biggest and best-known N , , Mr Circ'M ";WmIe; a big-time executive, is just an ordinary garden-variety of fisherman, and I feel I have to tell this story- 'on him. In the midst of arranging this 'Big Fish Contest' here, I wrote a letter to Mr. Circle, and in the meantime he had taken off at the season opening for some place up in Canada, I guess, for the fishing. So I got a letter back from Mr Circle's secretary at Heddon's — a Miss Davey, who on paper looked mighty efficient but just didn't seem to 'cotton' to fisherman talk. In fact, Miss Davey turned me down — on the contest, I mean. So I sat down and wrote her a real, old style 'kinfolk' letter, one with a little rock-and-roll, and the first I heard back was when Mr. Circle wrote and said Miss Davey just kept staring at the office wall and mumbling: "Iowa, Iowa, Iowa — what kind of a country IS that?" Anyway, you fishermen get your fish entries in on the contest. Bring 'em to Larry's Recreation, where they'll be weighed-in, displayed on ice and duly recorded. Due to pressure brought on us by Chet Williams to have Perch also, eligible in this fish contest, we have added another to the seven classifications — a "Chet Williams Perch Class.'* We at least expect a perch entry from Mr Williams. iiffliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiifliiiniUH We Can't Catch 1m For U But Well Help U Do It This Coming Season Prom Our COMPLETE TACKLE STOCK!

Ray Alderson, 1 know you're headed Up to Flin Flon in Saskatchewan, how about toting down one of those 18 or 20-lb. Northerns that I know they grow up there? Jack Button, I understand . you are going to be in at Cass Lake this week — and I know you'll latch onto the best in the lake. Arnie Ricklefs, they tell me you are planning to fish the Plum Creek sandpit this weekend. If so, bring in a cat. Gail Towne, how did you do with those "sonics?" Ralph Lindhorst, I have it on good authority that you are just as good with a glass rod as you are with a gun — how about proving it? Bill Becker, where are those big "cats" you say you snag out of the river north of town? Craig Smith, why not fish deep on this forthcoming trip of yours, and bring home a Muskie? Al Borchardt, I know you're catching fish — why keep it a secret? Jay Alherton, what's the plans for Red Lake this season? Harvey Larson, Howard Forsburg, Bill Amon — aren't you getting any strikes? And to Horace Clapsaddle, I have this to say — for a fisherman who opened up Kabetogama. even before the Indians knew it was there — can't you bring in .a Kabetogama Jtunker? ' And ^ filially to Virg SmftR;l^know. .that- in. that leit- hand desk" 'drawer of yours you have pictures of prize hogs, but in the right-hand drawer you have photographs of some wonderful catches of fish taken at places like Drewberry Lake — why not go get some and enter 'em in the 'Big Fish Contest?

Eniie Williams Pontiac-Cadillac ACROSS F1QM NiW 6©U*THQUSfi M90NA, »OWA Here's an amusing little fishing yarn I rah across. Seems that Joel Herbst and fed Larson were over at Okoboji fishing. Came noontime, and the two hooked Up to shore for lunch. Ted happens to like egg sandwiches with a lot of chopped-up chives spread over the egg, which his wife had dutifully learned to make. Seems Joel didn't bring along a very big lunch, and so Ted offered him a sandwich. First thing Ted knew, Joel was picking out all the chives, and saying: "You ought to be more careful, Ted, you must have dropped these sandwiches in the grass." • • » John Beiser is a subscrttm to one of the best fishing magazines it has been my pleasure to r«,d, and this last issue contained a really sound article on walleye fishing. John generously lends the magazine to me, and I think we are sure doing the publishers wrong as a year's subscription price is only $1.00. Don't ask Lawrence or Stu about this magazine — ask John. • » • In visiting with some prominent local fishermen last week, we got on the subject of cleaning fish, which I recognize as a chore. Catching 'em is one thing, but after the thrill, to clean a fish —even a nice plump walleye — and get him ready for the pan requires a great love of fishing. Here are some good tips I gleaned on this chore: (1) Freeze your fish overnight and in morning take fish, which is stiff as a board, stand him on his nose, take sharp knife and clip off fins, then head, then riffle down backbone. Open up belly and de-gut. You can then fillet or scale, as you wish. (2) To clean fish at once, place under hot water faucet. When scales turn partly white, they will come off easily. (3) To freeze fish for taking home, remember to put water with fish before sharp-freezing. If nothing else, saturate paper around fish. Quart milk cartons are good for this — fill water, insert fish, then freeze. A dried-out fish is no good eating, • * * SHORT SHOT — (I am once more indebted to Clark Orion and his boyhood mem- iors, so rich in lore of the past). "The buffalo fish was' a species of sucker and they were often caught weighing forty pounds or more. They were -'quite free from the small bones found in the sucker, and if they were properly prepared, by baking or belling, and correctly seasoned, they were very palatable. They were the "pork" of the fish tribe. They ran up the Minnesota river in May and the Indians along the valley in that early day would not ever plant their corn until the buffalo started to run, Some^ days when they were running one could fill the wagon box in a very short time."
