4 - y T r if ' ',.' Camp franchising lags through NE Yankee caution is slow ing the expansion of franchisee! campgrounds in New England. KOA, or Kampgrounds of America, the largest franchise operation in the country, boasts more than 700 areas within its fold. Yet only 18 of these are in New England. Another franchise expanding -fast outside of New England is Safari Camps, with 63 member campgrounds, but with only one in the six-state area, this in Vermont. Also growing is Red Arrow ith 59 camping areas but they are all west of the Hudson River. Several other franchise organizations have failed to penetrate New England.

Campground experts point to two reasons for New Englanders' reluctance. A franchise holder must pay a percentage of his receipts "off the top" to the parent company, a percentage of his gross, not of his profit. And the franchise will cost him at least $25,000 initially. The second reason is the short season afforded by New England's climate. Francbised facilities usually call for luxurious camper accommodations. These are costly and justified only by a long camping season possible only in the South and Southwest.

Tips on obscure, tasty fish By Monty Montgomery Globe Staff Fishermen sneaking out of the house with the lawn uncut know 'that they are providing cheap protein during these days of meat boycotts and daily inflation. But they tend to overlook many toothsome fishes in a relentless pursuit of cod, flounder and haddock, or freshwater trout and landlocked salmon. So doing, thsy miss some of the best and easiest-to-catch eating in the state. In salt water, nothing except haddock tastes better than CL'sk, and cusk, are available while haddock are scarcer than, well, haddock. The cusk is the almost eel-shaped, ugly," greenish yellow bottom dweller that you have to fillet before you show it to your wife. The best way to catch them is by jigging, but not the straight up and down method; they are too lazy for that. Cast out from the boat and work the jig back along the bottom, and you'll take most of them by snagging. Thafs the way Jerry Hill does it on his Yankee Patriot, snd he can fill a tub full in less than an hour. The other fine and neglected salt water fish is running right now in South Shore and Cape rivers, the white perch, a miniature striped bass. Rarely bigger than 18 inches, the white perch runs in huge schools up YACHTS, MOTORBOATS RHODE ISLAND .

In freshwater, the same white perch is found in big lakes, and is most vulnerable when it runs up tributaries to spawn. Enormous catches are taken from the Songo River at Sebago Lake in Maine, and the freshwater version is as fine eating as the salt. The most neglected fish for good table fare in New England is the "bream," , the bluegill and pumpkin-seed sunl'ishes. Down south i't is a delicacy ("You could hurt yo'self eating them," as my Texas friends say). The smaller red-eared sunfish is just as tasty, but too small to be worth the bother. For big ones, small live minnows arc the best bait, but they will strike freely at fly-rod popping bugs, very small swimming plugs, and any kind of Motor home camping victim of round-trip cost dilemma Motor home camping is not necessarily the rose garden the industry promises you. Not if you rent. And this is only because the rental wizards have one-track minds. You must return the unit to the dealer from whom you rented. Hertz and Avis would still be' renting buggy whips under this system. So you want to drive a motor home to Minneapolis? I'm not sure of the mileage but let's assume it's 1200 one way. You rent a motor home. You could make the trip west in three days, but all you'd see is scenery whizzing by. So you plan on a week. But, since you must return the unit, you'll need two weeks for the round trip. Initial cost is $250 per week. Add 10 cents a mile. That's $240. But you have to pay for gasoline, too. At eight miles per gallon, your tab rises roughly $119. So far, your fixed costs are $500 for rental, plus BOAT SHOW 100 i STORE OPEN 7 DAYS 542 E. SQUANTUM ST., NO.

Yellow perch are delectable year round from cold-water ponds, only fair from muddy wanm ponds in the summer. Yellow perch take streamer flies (regular minnow patterns) like gangbusters, and if you can catch one, a strip of perch belly fluttered through the water is equally deadly. The bullhead, or homed pout, is good southern food, but ignored by most northern angler. They do have two faults: They can i stick you painfully with their sharp spines, and they have to be skinned. Easiest way to skin them is to impale the head on a nail driven through a board, cut through the back skin down to the belly, grasp with pliers and use a steady pull not a jerk,.

But because you must return the unit to the point of origin this same trip costs you $229,50 extra.

Carp are the neglected game fish of New England. In Europe and the British Isles, there are clubs devoted to the pursuit of carp, national tournaments, and bus tours to great carp waters. Here, they thrive in the Merrimack and Charles Rivers, reaching weights up to 20 pounds. The finest bait is canned whole kernel corn. The carp pool (or "swim") should be baited with a few tablespoonfuls of corn kernels, then fished with a couple of kernels on a stout No. 12 hook. Use a sliding sinker, and a float above the sinker as a tell-tale. Carp, to the man who never caught one, are not a game fish. After you hook your first lusty 12-pounder, your mind will be changed. The railroads like this, too. They have innumerable empty flat-cars shuttling back and forth across the country. How about the railroads, the motor home industry, and the rental agencies getting together, to save travelers a few, dollars, and to make a few for themselves?

It's a big victory in Johnson's racing program that's paid off with enduro wins the world over. That's where your payoff comes, because these Johnson winners had the same basic powerhead that goes into our stock V-4's.
