Anglers Can Take to Lakes May 15 With Artificial Lures Between two and three million golfers play on the more than 6000 courses In the United Slates. LITTLE ROCK, May 13. CUP) — With the season for using artificial bait opening Wednesday in Arkansas, anglers departing for their favorite lakes and streams will do well to take with them a clear understanding of new regulations, In the opinion of T. A. McAmls, evacu- tivc secretary for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. He holies that any violations will be unintentional. Here are some of the things anglers need to know: First, all anglers 16 years of a:;c or older must have a resident license If they use artftcial bait, minnows or other small fish. And they need It If they're fishing from a boat or any other floating object, regardless of the kind of bait they're using. , McAinis points out that the license costs only $1.50 annually, and can be bought from more than 500 dealers over the state. Most circuit court clerks have them, and nil ' sporting goods stores carry them. The penalty for violation of Arkansas license laws ranges from $10 to $50. Youngsters KxempUd I If you're less than IB years ol' age, don't worry about a license. Number two headache for the Commission is the abuse of the old picnic seine law, where the only requirement was that the seiner have a license. Recent action by the Commission ha? vcpciUetl the old law in several ways. First, the legal seining season starts a month later, July 1, and closes the same date as before Sept. 30. Second, game fish cannot be taken with seines at all. Third, seining permits will be Issued only for boua fide picnics, specifying the place of the outing, the i time, and the place to be seined. And fourth, game wardens with both eyes open will accompany all seining putties. Secretary McAinis says that penalties for violation range from $50 up, and he sees the new seining regulations us "the most progressive steps made recently by the Commission."
