Located Elsa Marie Shop Fishing Contest Doesn't Bother Sportsmen By VIC WATIA United Press International The growing popularity of fishing tournaments has worried many fishermen, but last weekend's Illinois team championship bass tournament at Crab Orchard Lake near Marion would have been an eyeopener for the observer. Illinois Outdoors I fished Crab Orchard Lake with my wife and daughter while the tournament was in progress, but despite the more than 460 bassmen congregated on the lake, I was shownevery courtesy. That in itself puts down one of the myths surrounding pro fishing, that tournament contestants are a bunch of hotrodders who don't care aboutt he next guy. Not Bothered If I had not known a tournament was in progress, I probably just would have thought there was an unusual number of fishermen out on the lake. For that matter, the tourna­ ment didn't stop others from enjoying the reacreation facilities. Some water 9kiers could be observed braving the cool spring waters, and many pleasure boaters were making the rounds Of the lakes. Another myth that would have gone out the window to the observer is that tournament fishing hurts the fish population. On the contrary, those participating in the tournament turned over their catches alive to fish hatchery officials at the end of the day, and the fish were immediately placed in aerated tanks to keep them halthy. Out of 260 fish taken the first day of the two-day tournament, only 16 died. All the fish caught during the tournament will be returned to the lake, including an 8-pound 11-ounce lunker caught by Bill Schoolcraft Jr. Fees For Fish To top it off, some $2,000 in entry fees went to a program for restocking the lake even though all fish were returned. The tournament, which was sponsored by the Southern Illinois Bass Busters, also stresed afety. Fishermen were intruc- ted that if the lake became too rough to cros on any day of the event, they could park their boats and return to the weigh-in stations on foot if necessary. In fact, at least one pair of fishermen did ju9t that the second day of the toumamen wthen high winds tore the lake into waves. It was interesting to watch top bassmen from throughout the state pit their skills in a fishing contest of this sort. Good Casting One could not help but admire the talents of many anglers as they hurled lures for hours with deadly accuracy into brushpiles beneath trees and at the base of stumps. The event was won by four Kincaid Bass Club members who boasted 22 pounds, 11 ounces of fish during the event. That averages out to a little more than five pounds of fish for each of the four men on the team for the two days of fishing. The team consisted of Don Porter, Ken Russell, Terry Hood and Dale Rice. It may seem surprising to some that with the number of bass boats, fish locators and other sorts of modern equipment available, that more than 200 anglers in the tournament were skunked the first day of See 'Fish'- (Continued on Page 7) MOTHER'S DAY MAY 13™ JEANS and TOPS From Sears Jr. Bazaar SAVE $2 99 5 Tops SAVE $2 or $3 99 Jeans Regular $8 Tops in assorted colors.
