20-Palm Beach Post, Tuesday, Nov. 19, 1968 Pomps, Macs Are Hungry . -.-. 1 t-w - - OUTDOORS By Ed Buckow 4 U'-rrVr-'ChtW-U-zz.: r7 One of the best runs of pompano in recent years in Lake Worth continued unabated Monday, and the Spanish mackerel action in the St. Lucie Inlet area during the past two days has been nothing less than sensational. To top it off. we're due for a weather change that may push some mackerel southward closer to the Palm Beaches. It should also serve up bluefish in the Juno-Hobe Sound area, and have the effect of holding the pompano in Lake Worth. The local Weather Bureau said winds are expected to shift into the north this morning after the passage of a cold front through this area. Meteorologist Ralph Sevalius forecast 15-20-knot northerly winds today. He said the winds will probably fall off and shift into the northeast Wednesday. Brisk northerly winds may temporarily limit skiff fishing in the mackerel schools in the St. Lucie Inlet area, but the end results of the northerly winds should be worth the interruption for local fishermen. "The pompano are all over the lake mostly south of Peanut Island," BUI Bachstet, operator of Bill's Marina, remarked late Monday. The top pompano catch checked in at Bill's establishment was Coates Johnson's 32. Dr. William Dyer and Irish O'Neil came in with 24 pomps, and Fritz Sonderman took 20. Jim McCurdy picked up a dozen during a morning trip. The pompano fishing was so wild in the lake Sunday that fishermen who never caught pompano before scored fair to good catches. More than 1.000 pounds of pompano were received at Lake Side Tackle and Seafood Sunday, with catches running from 30 to more than 100 pounds per fisherman. The best catch checked in there Monday numbered 34 pomps. Billy Dorahush of Hi Tide Tackle said fishermen took some pompano Monday fishing from the northwest corner of the causeway fill at Riviera Memorial Bridge. He said sheepshead were taken from the fill and from the large span of the causeway. Mr. and Mrs. George De Bay Jr.. and Billy De Bay. bagged more than 60 pompano on Lake Worth Sunday. Some good catches of pompano were made on Saturday, but it is possible that more fishermen would have had better fishing if some of the drift fishermen had operated their boats differently. I was out there and witnessed it. Some of the drift fishermen, after making a drift, would turn their boats around and roar back through the pompano fleet, at full throttle. This practice not only may have spooked a lot of pompano. but I am certain it made things uncomfortable for people in small boats. Commenting on the mackerel fishing north and south of St. Lucie Inlet Sunday, George DeBay, local tackle shop operator, said, "Everybody caught all they wanted." Local angler Alan Buick said. "There were mackerel as far as you could see. He added that he had never seen mackerel action that compared with it. Buick and his fishing companion. Bobbie Petratti. took 122 mackerel casting feathers and spoons. When they quit fishing the macks were still hitting. Two other local fishermen. Bud Moore and Bill Davemiort. landed 65 in the same area. According to word received last night from the Fishin' Hole, the mackerel put on the feed bag north and south of the inlet again yesterday, and blues were taken offshore and inshore. Local angler Chet Warren took 44 mackerel and six blues south of St. Lucie Inlet yesterday, and two other local fishermen. Bill Schlechty and Cauley Patrick, landed 53 mackerel on feathers and spoons in the same area. Charlie Tschopp and John Vasser. West Palm Beach, ran north of the inlet and scored a catch of 49 mackerel and 11 blues. Apparently a really great migratory gamefish season is developing along this part of the coast this year. CINCY BENGALS in PAUL ROBINSON STIFFARMS DOLPHINS DICK ANDERSON Squeeze Play? TV Stopped Raiders ;M ARTHUR DALEY New York Times Bull Gator Graves Credits QB Peacock NEW YOKK Baseball's proudest boast has long been the trite but true statement: The game isn't over until the final out. Presumably it represented a measure of superiority over such clock-confined sports as football, where time limitations clamp down inexorably to snuff out rallies. The beauty of baseball, it is contended, is that it can continue endlessly. Much too often it just seems that way. But football is in time's straitjacket and the chance of last-minute heroics is comparatively rare. When the New York Jets took a 32-29 lead over the Oakland Raiders with 65 seconds to play on Sunday, victory for the Jets appeared to be solidly locked away. However, the Raiders violated all laws of probability by scuring not one touchdown but two in the abbreviated space of nine seconds within that skimpy span. It was a million-to-one shot. The National Broadcasting Company gambled that it wouldn't happen, and lost. So did the Jets.

FII i r n ii m Even a delayed pick-up "We now join the show already in progress'' would have been preferable and smarter. Of course, the Raiders were the ones who did dirt by NBC. If they had followed normal procedures and been obedient to the dictates of the average script, they would have fizzled out in accordance with the usual pattern. Then the Jets would have won, 32-29, and the blacked-out viewers would have been sullen but not mutinous. One of the more glorious aspects of football, however, is that it cannot be catalogued so precisely. It offers a mixed bag of games that can be good or bad, close or one-sided, dull or wildly exciting. When it presents a cliff-hanger of the dimensions of the Raider-Jet affair, it becomes a matchless drama that drains viewers emotionally. The Oakland rally in that final minute provided a climax that may have hit with more impact than any production that NBC ever offered. Here was a tingling whodunit thriller left in mid-air. At its actual completion, however, no one knew who done it or how. That was the mischievous part of this snipped-off telecast. Millions of viewers naturally assumed how could one logically assume anything else? that they had just seen the Jets break a 29-29 tie with a winning field goal.

Just as the grand climax approached, NBC snatched away the picture and replaced it with a filmed classic, "Heidi." Furiously indignant football fans didn't think it very classic and their telephonic screams of protests even had the executives of the space cadets admitting that they bad pulled a gigantic booboo. The Raiders had just swooped into scoring territory on the Jet 4:i with 50 seconds to play when the blackout came. What made it all the more aggravating was that a whole minute was wasted with commercials before the unwelcome innocent, "Heidi," muscled the musclemen from the screen. Is television so inflexible a medium that no provision can be made for emergency situations such as this? MOTOR OVERHAULED I've had." Graves said. It insured Florida a winning season the seventh straight and a 3-2-1 Southeastern Conference finish. The Gators could gain a 6-3-1 season record if they beat Miami in thewindupNov. 30. This week's open date will give injured players a chance to heal. Injuries, which plagued the Gators trom the start ol this supposed-to-be-sweet season, didn't stop at Lexington. Quarterback Jack Eckdahl didn't even make the trip. Larry Rentz. although hobbled with multiple hurts, led Florida to a 10-0 lead before he went down and out with a possible cracked rib. Harold Peacock, of Pahokee, third stringer with limited experience, quarterbacked the entire second half. He did one thing no other Gator has done all year score in the third quarter. His touchdown after a 49-yard drive provided the winning points. ' Peacock moved the ball as much as you could expect from a boy who has played as little as he has." Graves said. Florida came back for Peacock's touchdown and the delense rose to the occasion in the final quarter. $5950 AC Jw lIOB PIUS MBTl By the time Jim turner had split the posts with his fourth place ment, tne Haiders were taced with twin insuperable obstacles, 65 seconds and 100 yards yards of gridiron.

"Chairmin" Harmon looked good against the Bears," Van Brocklin told his weekly press luncheon. "He will be a fine back. Ole Charmin' is going to have a good future." Wages, a handsome blond-haired rookie from Florida, gained 71 yards in 10 carries in Atlanta's 16-13 victory over Chicago Sunday. He now is the team's second leading rusher. $ 50 39 OF THAT LOW-PAY JOB LABOR PLUS PARTS and the yardage was too long. Or so it had to appear. What happened after that is hazy to the Jets who actually saw it and to the TV audience that didn't. Charlie Smith, a Raider rookie, whipped out of the end zone with the ensuing kick-off and returned the ball to the 22. Remaining were 50 seconds and 78 yards, Daryle Lamonica, a Raider sharpshooter, was on target with a 20-yard pass to Smith, a gain that was stretched to the Jets 43 when a face mask penalty was called. Fadeout of the football game. Fade in "Heidi." Lamonica again combined with Smith for a pass, which went all the way for a touchdown.

It was not enough for the Jets to do anything more than gnash their teeth. This pyrotechnic display never made the TV screen with the instant heroes, Lamonica and Smith.
