Mei**.* AHMNNI HMB, Hum., Apfl Â«. IHt MVtTTCVIU* AMAMM* This Could Be The Year Fayetteville Bulldogs Put It On Line For Conference Championships Most expert! readily agree that this may just be the red letter year for fishing the Beavtr Lake Resevotr. More anglers have caught more fish this spring than ever before, or at least it seems that way to most people. Glen Davis, dock owner at Prairie Creek, summed it up when he said. "We haven't had this kind of fishing since the lake filled. I'm sure we'll set some records this year." And some fishermen have already begun to advance on the lake records f o r game fish. Mr. Louis Treece for example, started things off with a catch of bass that was almost unbelievable. H i s catch of blacks included 11 bass ranging from 2'A pounds all the way up to a monster of eight pounds. Bert and James Oxford also have reported a fine catch of black bass including a 6',4 pounder a four pounder and eight others ranging from Hi to 3',4 pounds. After they got tired of pulling in blacks they landed x 17 pound northern pike that measured 30 inches in length. This catch was taken even further down the lake at Big Clifty on Rebels and Lazy Ikes. LIMIT CATCHES Catches either rearing or equaling the limit of crappie by a number of people have already flooded many of the lakes docks. Jim Hatfield and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Potts to name just a couple have reported their limit in crappie with some good sized individual catches. White bass fishing although somewhat behind the others has begun to steadily pick up. Right now reports have it that this species are beginning to appear in the lower reaches of the lake. So if you're not having any luck don't give up yet. Those fish are there, j u s t ask the people with large catches. If you try your luck in the Prairie Creek reaches of the lake your best het is still blacks. Several fine catches have been brought in to the dock. Glen Davis reports that if you go out and try you're almost sure to bring back some fish. T h e subsurface l u r e s w o r k e d along the grassy banks has up till now been the primary method of bringing in blacks. But a number of anglers are now turning to purple worms worked in the rear of a cove. Crappie fishing is the big thing in the Hickory Creek area. Several limits were re ported. Jigs and minnows seem to do the jog quite well. In addition all the tributaries of this area report excellent chances for * good catch. AUDUBON MEETING T h e Arkansas Audubon Society will hold its annual spring meeting May 2-4 at Ozark Boys Camp. The camp is located s i x m i l e s west of Mt. Ida. Lodging in cabins and meals can be made by reservation by w r i t i n g Mrs. H. H. Shugart, 180 N. Broadway, El Dorado, Ark. If you're interested in birds and wild life it's a good chance to get outdoors and go on some guided tours of the area and hear about wildlife from the experts. WORM FACTORY If you're looking for a good supply of worms for fishing bait, the best bet is to plant a tree, or you might consider worm hunting during a thunder storm. The best worm producing tree that I know of is the catalpa tree. It really is a source of fine fishing worms. These catalpa worms are ac- tally the larval stage of sphinx moths. They often grow to a length of three inches and are found only on this particular kind of tree. Harvesting is also easy. Just give the tree a good s h a k e and collect worms from the ground. The thunderstorm method is also a good source of b a i t . During a heavy rain storm, worms will come out of the ground and lay on top of the grass or on driveways and street curbs. They are easy to catch as long as the r a i n lasts. GO JUICE Most people just don't realize how important fuel is to an outboard motor. Other than the fact that it's expensive and it makes the motor run most people could care less about the effect it has on an engine's performance. In a normal two-cycle engine, the o i 1 in the fuel lubricates the engine as it passes through the crankcase and combustion chamber. So without the proper mixture you're likely to be in f o r some costly repairs. Most docks and some service stations carry r e a d y mixed fuel which takes most of the guess work out of measuring an oil to gasoline ratio. None the less m o s t owners still mix their o w n for various reasons. Just put a couple of gallons in the tank and then add the proper amount of oil. M o s t dealers can tell you t h e proper amount for each engine and the type of oil to use. Shake the can around in order to mix the oil thoroughly and then fill the can with gasoline. W i t h todays oils and gasolines the mixture stays mixed so there's no need for perodic mixing.
