CULPEPPER Loreto Offers Great Fishing LORETO, Baja Calif.--For a number of years I have heard Loreto exploited as one of the finest fishing places in Baja. I have flown over it on the way south and back again, but until just recently I have never stopped there to try it. Let me say that I'm sorry that I didn't stop years ago for Loreto's fishing is simply out of this world. Our party of eight fished in two boats off a tip of Carmen Island, about 18 miles from Loreto. Just imagine a yellowtail school so thick that you couldn't get a lure through it to try for cabnlla. And who is going to turn up his nose at 20-pound yellows hitting everything you throw at 'em. I was aboard the Smoke House, · 25-footer and the skipper and deckhand really knew their business. It didn't take me long to ie*rn their tricks. Just toss * big jig overboard, let it sink rapidly, then reel in as fast as posible--and there was another yellowtail! : Sea Devles, Huskie Devles, Vivifs and Leisure Lures' squid in any size were excellent So were Martin plugs. There seemed to be no limit to the number of lures we used and to try to name one that was outstanding would be foolish. I had one of Jed Welsh's Breakwater Specials and it was just as hot as any of the others. + * * FISHING ON THE SMOKE HOUSE with me were Dan Ellyn, western regional sales manager for Aero- naves de Mexico; Bud Lewis, president of the Lewis Company, public relations counsel for Aeronaves, and Elaine · Freer, outdoor editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Elaine, on his first trip to Baja, admitted that the yellows were harder hitters than his great salmon of the northwest. You should have heard him screaming. On the other boat were Ed Neal, outdoor editor of the San Francisco Examiner; Elmar Baxter, Los Angeles Herald-Examiner; Andy Morgenson, Oakland Tribune, and Bill Beebe, Santa Monica Outlook. Their luck was just as good as ours, if not hotter. Andy landed the largest fish of the day--a 59-pound cabrilla. Bill and Gloria Benzlger, as happy a couple as you'd ever meet anywhere, were our hosts at the Oasis Hotel in Loreto. Gloria's Mexican and American foods kept us happy while ashore. We had one dinner at the Flying Sportsmen Lodge, owned and operated by Ed Tabor and actually the most spacious place in Loreto. Loreto, steeped in the early romance of Spanish history, is situated in a date grove just 565 air miles from Mexicali, and a bit farther than the Tijuana Airport. Road (?) miles from Tijuana to Loreto number 746 and if you ever tried it. you would think that it was one thousand and 746--if you made it! * * * THERE MAY COME A DAY when there is a surfaced road from Tijuana to La Paz, but for the moment, any attempt to traverse the so-called highway leads to nothing but trouble unless you have all kinds of spare parts for your vehicle. If you are interested in Baja's roads and distances, get Kym's Guide No. 6 (Map of Baja California and the Gulf of California) and study it intently before undertaking any kind of journey in the Mexican state and territory. For, if you don't know, Baja is divided into two parts, the northern half, the state, the southern, or Sur, the territory. Aeronaves' interest In getting the fishermen to Baja ipas Is being expanded quickly. The airline now makes three flights per week out of Tijuana, stopping at Santa Rosalia (airport for Mulege transfer), Loreto and La Paz. It takes three hours for DC3s to reach Santa Rosalia, another 50 minutes to Loreto end about the same time to La Paz. A round-trip fare to Mulege is 48 dollars, plus a few cents; 58 dollars, plus a few cents to Loreto and only 72 dollars and some cents to La Paz. Such cheap travel out of Tijuana is attracting the attention of many Southern California sportsmen. (Editor's note: Another column about Culpepper's Baja trip will be in this section Thursday). Wildcat' Signs for $36,500 ORLANDO, Fla. UPI)--! Jim (Mudott) Grant, a 21- gam« winner during the regu lar season last year, ended his holdout with the Minnesota T w i n s Tuesday when he s i g n e d a contract esti- m a t e d a t $36,500. Grant, w h o a d d e d t w o more victories a g a i n s t the PBAMT Dozers in the GRANT World Series originally demanded $50,000 for 1966 and last week re duced liis asking price to $41,500. Twins owner Calvin Griffith also had to yield somewhat to sign his ace right- hander as he stood firm for several weeks at $35,000. Grant flew into town Tues day afternoon and went into conference with Griffith. The signing was announced shortly after. Grant has missed almost a month of training, but said last week that he would be in shape for the season opener if he came to terms no later than this week. He has been keeping himself in shape by training at a gym near his home in Ohio. ue» mim CUM., waai. Mar. u, MM INDEKNDENT-fep 'I CAN STILL PITCH' Johnny Podres On the Spot By GEORGE LEDERER I, r-T Stiff Wrlttr ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. --Johnny Podres is on the spot and doesn't like it. Pitching coach L e f t y Phillips has in mind only spot starts for the dean of all Dodgers, who sees spots at the mere suggestion of a part-time role. "Spot starts and relief aren't for me," says Podres. "I want to take my regular turn. I don't want another year like last. I know I can still pitch in the big leagues, whether it's for the Dodgers or another club." There was a time during the winter when Podres thought it would be for another club. "I watched the papers every day during the inter- league trading period. I thought for sure I'd go to an American League club. I'm glad I'm still here, but I'm here to pitch -- and often. "I'd like to pitch more than 200 innings." One reason the 33-year- old Podres is back for his 13th season with the Dodgers is Mrs. Podres. Another is Mr. Bavasi. Also during the winter, Podres announced his engagement to former Ice Follies star Joni Taylor, now his bride of five weeks. Podres admits he "should have taken the step three years ago." and general manager Buzzie Bavasi agrees. "I've been wailing 12 years for him to settle down," said Bavasi. "I always figured he would once he was married. Now that he has, I don't want to miss it." It was unfortunate that Bavasi missed Podres' exhibition debut, the only noteworthy Dodger performance Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to the New York Mets. Podres blanked the Mets on three hits for three in- ings and hopes he'll have a chance for a regular-season encore. "It Menu like I never get to face the Mets." he moaned. (He started only once against them last season.) "I'd like to pitch against them as often a* Koufax and Drysdale. Look at their records."

Podres points out that he pitched against some tough dubs last season, had A sensational start and a good finish, but saw little action in between. He started five times against the powerful Reds. four times against the Phillies and three times against Pittsburgh. At the end of May, his earned run average was a brilliant 1.50, but he was credited with only three of seven Dodger victories in his first nine starts. "In the middle of the year, Koufax, Drysdale and Osteen did all the pitching. I got (inly 134 innings all THE ARNOLD by GOLFS 4-TIME MASTERS WINNER SWING UNITY PAYS OFF To bring the big muscles of the back and legs into play, you must swingwith thfl Itjs body, shoulders and arms moving together in a unified manner. You will get little help from your back and leg muscles if your hands and amis move the club largely on the:rown. To help unify your swing, at address, keepyour aims fairly cloM foyour body (see *I). Inthisway, there is less tendency to sfart the swing solely with the hands. Instead the hands will mov* the club back as your hips and shoulders start turning. All this unification pays off in the hitting area as your legs and body thrust power through your amis and hands to the club itself (se*'2). ·J, O »M kr KATL Nm. 9r. be f Anvfaf ··· White Rips 3 Consecutive Home Runs ar Tha AuaclaM Fran Bill White slammed three consecutive home runs in Philadelphia's 8-7 victory over the Boston Red Sox, provid ing the highlight in Tuesday's exhibition baseball competi tion. The veteran first baseman, obtained by the Phillies from St Louis in a winter trade, connected with the bases empty each time. Another recent Philadelphia acquisition, D o u g Clemens, won the game with a solo homer in the ninth. Clemens was obtained from the Chicago Cubs. Home runs also featured several of the other games. Tito Francona and Tim Me- Carver each walloped two-run blasts in leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-5 victory over Minnesota. It was the sixth straight setback for th* winless Twins. + * * · BILL Mazeroski and Matty AIou connected for Pittsburgh in the Pirates' 4-3 triumph over Cincinnati. Dave Roberts' single drove h o m e Jerry Lynch with the winning run in the fifth. Tommy Agee walloped the first Chicago White Sox home run of the spring as the Sox trounced the Houston Astros, 7-3.

"I'll use the slider more against lefthanded hitters. 1 had trouble with my curve against the lefties last year and I hung a few inside. I didn't use the slider today because my c u r v e was good.
