Baseball's deteriorating contract talks kept the parks closed until today, a delay of more than two weeks, leaving a sour taste in the mouths of Grapefruit league followers. "We're just keeping our f i n g e r s crossed," said Tluby Rapp of Cincinnati, who organized a tour for 550 fans known as the "Reds' Rooters," one of the largest booster clubs in major league baseball.

Reds practice," said Mrs. Rapp. Dog races and tourist attractions have been replacing baseball--but the natives are restless. "Everybody knew we were t a k i n g a chance when we came down. But we felt sure things would be settled before this," said Mrs. Rapp. "We've been doing a lot of other t h i n g s , but we w o u l d prefer baseball." York, a retired YMCA executive (rom Dayton, says he has been a baseball fan "since I was knee high." But he can't understand the obstacles that have held up spring training. "1 t h i n k the players want to play. Hell, for $100,000 a year, I'd gel out there and play," he snorted. York, on his first trip to Florida, is accompanied by 78-year-old Bill Hart, a r e t i r e d d e p u t y sheriff f r o m Cincinnati. "We're t i r e d nf watching television,"Hart grumbled. It is Hart's 17th consecutive trip to spring training and his 4!fth jaunt to follow the Reds across the country. "I saw my (irst game as an ice cream 'butcher'--or vendor--at old Crosley Field. Ed Rausch was my favorite player." "Boston (ans can say they are No. 1, but Reds' fans are the best to .the world. We back our boys to the end," says 'Mrs. Rapp. Middle-aged twin sisters Edna and Edith Schmutte of Cincinnati are making t h e i r 10th consecutive s p r i n g t r a i n i n g t r i p . "We're having a ball without baseball, but it's still a big disappointment. All this legal entanglement is bad (or baseball," said Edith. But she doubts that the uproar will seriously curb interest in the sport. "We have 11 in our (amily and lit nieces and nephews. And they're all baseball nuts to Hie 'nth' degree."

Donnell Culpcpper Record cow cod catch--145 fish Most of the dialler among Ihc ocean anglers recently has been aboul where are the yellowtail, when will the albacorc arrive and other questions about big-game fish. Yel, Ihc Fishui' Fads Scoreboard daily shows mostly rocklish. a general classification that covers Iwo or three dozen species of bottom fish. On Monday of Ihis week, Jim Milner, skipper of the : (Moot Californian now running out of Queen's Wharf Sportfishing. look 151 passengers to a rockfish "hole" near San Nicolas Island. Those 31 came home with full limits of rockfish. Among the limit swere M5 cow cod, the largest of the rockfish family and highly desired as :i table delicacy. Such a number of cow eod on one fishing boal in one day is some kind of a record in this or any other state.. .1. C. (Mac) McCliatock, general manager of Queen's Wharf and onetime general manager of the old Pierpoint Landing, said that he never had heard of such a catch in all Ihe years he has been in the business. Neither had Jack Schott, Department of Fish and Game biologist who keeps the score on all party-boat trips in Southern California. Schott researched the. records for IS years and could not find any such total.; The "cows" averaged about IS pounds, making a grand tola! of one and one-half tons of fish. The patrons on that, day also had excellent catches of other rockfish species, all of smaller sizes. NOW THAT THE INITIAL CKOWLEY Lnke reser- valions clambake is over, trout anglers may make future reservatioas by calling the Department of Parks and Recreation Permits and Reservations Section at 4855515, says John Peebles of the LARPD's Camping Section. Even (hough Ihe dale was changed this year for the lineup al Elysian Park Lodge. Ihe usual lineup occurred with two women, Roberta Van Horn. 23, and Vicky Corey. 2:1, both of I.a Crescenla, waiting in line for 12H; hours lo get boats for the opening of trout season on Crowley April 21 and 25. Not only did the women line up, but Ihey had Iheir youngsters with them. Mrs. Van Horn had a son, Bobby, 2, and Mrs. Corey, a IB-monlh-old son, Hobby. They got the first two boats with motors at 3 p.m. last Sunday. Their five-day wait was just two hours and nine minutes short of the all-lime waiting record sel in 1970. Ikith women indicate! thai they fished "at times," but that they wailed lor the boats primarily for their husbands, who feel thai fishing Crowley Lake on the opening weekend is a tradition lhat should not he broken. Said Mrs. Van Horn: "I like to fish if il's not loo cold. My husband is an avid fisherman and as long as the TV set is working and it makes the guys happy, it's fun for us lo drive up there in our camper and spend a few days logther." While the women were wailing, their husbands joined them each night for dinners in Iheir campers. ALL OF THE OTHER CROWLEY boals were snap- iwd up in the first two hours. The two women had taken the two (irst places in line willi Iheir campers at midafternoon Tuesday preceding the Sunday allocation of boats. Others joined the line by Thursday morning'. For the benefit of those newcomers in our midst who may never have seen Crowley Lake, it is classed as. the west's greatest trout production water. The lake always is closed at Ihe end of July, three months prior lo other Sierra Nevada lake closings, in order Ihal the Department of Fish and Game may plant it with thousands of suboatchables. Those fish grow so rapidly that some reach one pound in weight by the opening nf trout season in the following year. It is seldom Ihal anybody catches a trout under 12 ounces in Crowley. Itesidcs the plant each year of subcatchables, the lake harbors some large browns and several hybrid species of (rout Ihal grow lo tremendous size. The food chain is excellenl in Crowley, accounling for the rapid growth of all lish. Due Islcr, a Temple Cily angler who was in 10th position at the Elysian Park Lodge allocalion, said: 'There are oilier places with bigger fish and less pressure, but I'd hale to miss Ihe opening of Cniwley. While I have never caught a big Iroul, there's always that hope lhat I'll land a lunker." !» I Ml tl I {Moor* l rtoxdl; . e r i u g n o . J Vc'ey (PI U'. Htlan MUi: Anred (P) sat.

BEACH- « j«lm os 'J' ojj.1^ r: rtxk cV.. i ov» ,-·-!. i 1 i i f v f r ii'mon SOME CHANGES ARE BEING made in nearby lakes in Ihe hope that fishing may he improved. For instance, Pcrris Ixike, which has been receiving some publicity for its Alabama spoiled bass, now boasts of !he start of a channel catfish program Ihal can blossom inlo Ihe hesl fishery that Perns has to offer. The DFO planted 300 channel calfish Ihal averaged fnur or more pounds to the fish. The cats were surplus hroodstock from the department's Imperial Warm- Water Hatchery' near the Salton Sea. Ken Aasen, DFG biologisl who is responsible for starting Alabama bass in the lake and who. as a mailer of record, has had trouble catching one. says it's easier lo catch the channels if you fish early in the morning or lale in the aftemn. Cut bonito or mackerel or chicken livers make ideal bails, he finds. The other change involves the transfer of 250 adnlt black crappie from Vail Lake in Riverside County to Caslaic Lake in northern Los Angeles County. The adults from Vail are small, but apparently arc ready for spawning. They are only about four inches long, yet are considered adult fish. The addition of 250 such crappie to Castaic won't have an immediate effect on the lake's fish population, luil if they spawn. Ihe net resull might be a good crappie fishery for Caslaic, says Aasen, who had charge of that operation as well as the one at Perris. OUTDOOR MINIS--The sportfishing season for spiny lobster lhat opened last October closed on Wednesday of this week one day after the opening of abalone season for the Southern California coast. That abalone season will remain open until next Jan. 11, except for Ihe northeasterly side of Catalina Island, where the dates are April 1 to Oct. I of this year. Consult yotir Sportfishing Regulations pamphlet for other regulations and limits. Jack Ford, of the I-ike Henshaw Resort, says that $5.000 in cash prizes will be given away between March 21 and Sept. 12. There will be a distribution of £SX weekly--4-10 each for Ihe largest bass, crappie, bullhead, channel calfish and bluegill or redear sunfish. Wayne Miller, o( the Parker, Ariz., Sheriffs Office, fishing with a blue plastic worm, caught a 6-pound, 12- onncc largemotrth bass in Lake Ha to take the lead in the first month's payoffs of the $10,000 Lake Havasu Fishing Derby Ihal runs through Jane 13. The Citizen Nongame Advisory Committee to the Department of Kish and Game has scheduled a meeting" for March 29 in San Francisco. This committee is charged with defining objectives for nongame programs of Ihe department, recommending projects and suggesting means of financing such programs. Maxine McCIos-" key. of Piedmont, Alameda County, is chairwoman.
