'PAGE 50 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Bill Quimby CITIZEN OUTDOOR EDITOR Coif Notes Trip ended OK A Tucson fisherman's annual Mexican fishing vacation started out as a harrowing experience last month and ended as one of the best fishing trips of his life, he claims. Frank Gaynor, retired architectural photographer and rather of the Tucson Daily Citizen's photo assignments editor Gary Gaynor, tells about it this way: "On my third day out at Lake Obregon, after just so-so fishing, I learned that you had to travel about 22 miles uplake to the inlet to find the best bass fishing spots," he said "Everything I was told was true. Fishing alone there in my 12-foot aluminum boat, I caught plenty of fish, including lots of five- pounders, and kept only those over four pounds. "On the way back, the wind came up and made the lake like an ocean. It was a good thing I was atone because if anyone else had been in the boat, we would have been swamped Those high-rolling waves were hitting two and three at a time. "My little boat was severely'pounded. The seams started to split and water was pouring in through the rivet holes while 1 was m mid-lake. It took 15 minutes for my 9V, horsepower outboard to make shore. [ had only two hours until dark and 1 hit shore about 18 to 19 miles from camp," Gaynor said. On shore, Gaynor dumped the water out of what was left of the little boat, then waited for the wind to die. He limped back to camp after dark by sopping up incoming water with a laree sponge. 6 "I would have been out of the fishing business entirely if ! hadn't hooked up with two of the finest people I've ever met " he said. His new-found friends were Jerry Crider, former Tucson- area baseball player who now runs a bass-fishing service at Lake Obregon, and George Burnett, also a baseball player now pitching for the Hermosillo team. Friends provided boat "Without a boat, I would have had to leave for home " Gaynor said. "But Burnett needed a fishing partner and I was chosen. Those two guys provided everything for the next 10 days and I couldn't pay for a thing." "We fished from one of Crider's new bass boats and had fishing like you couldn't believe. I don't think we caught anything less than four to five pounds each. We even found a place where we caught 43 big bass from one spot. "It was the most fantastic fishing I've seen in a long time," Gaynor said. "It was exactly like it used to be at Lake Hildalgo before commercial fishing hit there. "We caught fish without even trying and bsfore I left, the fish had moved into the main lake and we were even catchine them near Crider's Marina." Gaynor said the best lures at Lake Obregon were Bomber- type deep-running pi-- artificial worms and Spot-type crank baits. Lake Obregon is approximately 10 hours south of Tucson near Ciudad Obregon, about 100 miles south of Guaymas It is a large impoundment created by the Mexican government's damming of the Yacqui River for agricultural purposes. It is closed to fishing during April, the largemouth bass spawning season. Drawings nearly filled Only 812 spring turkey and javelina hunting permits are unfilled after a computer-held drawing.

Johnny Miller, who isn't competing here, became the ninth man to go beyond the $1 million mark in career earnings with his victory in last week's Bob Hope Desert Classic. And now Miller Barber, a 44-year-old veteran in his 18th season on the tour, is ready to join one of the game's most exclusive clubs. Barber, the quiet, low-key, unobtrusive golfer called "Mr. X" by his fellow tourists, has career earnings of $996,501 going into this 72-hole chase for a $36,000 first prize which starts tomorrow. Barber is $3,499 short and could finish as low as 12th here and reach the plateau achieved only by Miller, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Bruce Crampton, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Gene Littler and Tom Weiskopf. "That's pretty good company," Barber said. "Naturally, it's something I'd like to do. "But I can't say it was a big goal when I started out here. Purses weren't all t h a t big then. Nobody had even come close to $1 million. It just wasn't something you thought about." Even if he doesn't make it here -- and his chances in a relatively thin field would appear to be very good -- it's only a matter of time until the balding, paunchy veteran reaches the magic figure. At least four other players also have a chance to join the club before the year is over -but none can make it this week. Julius Boros, the semi-retired "Old Man River" of the tour, is only $6,244 short of the figure with career winnings of $993,756. But he isn't playing here. The other three -- Frank Beard, Dave Hill and Bobby Nichols -- are within sight of the mark but are far enough back so that even .a victory here would leave them short. Beard has earnings of $951,596, Hill $M2,830 and Nichols $907,945. Four of the $1 million winners are in the bulky, 156-man field and figure to offer some of the chief opposition to Barber's drive to join their ranks. They are Casper, who has threatened for .the title in each of the last two events, Littler, Trevino and Crampton. Some of the other major contenders on the 6,667-yard, par-72, oceanside Torrey Pines Country Club course are British Open king Tom Watson, U.S. Open titleholder Lou Graham, Hale Irwin, John Mahaffey, defending champion J. C. Snead and Buddy Allin, who chased Miller to the victory in the Bob Hope. jCORBETT ROOFING Quality Roofing... sine* 1890 622-2123 INSULATION...
