(UPI) —The small cove was nameless on <Mie detailed map of Kentucky Lake, and the map showed no unusual structure that would seem to appeal to fish, But Ray Fuller—a pro with more than 30 bass lourna- ments under his belt—saw it differently. Pro Bassman Knows Where To Find Them Illinois Outdoors "This is it," Ray said, edging the boat toward one point in the cove. "There's' a beautiful hole right off it dropping to 20 feet of water. Oast your lure there." But I hadn't finished rigging my nod yet and told Ray to start without me. His gold plug touched the water and inched to the left of a piece of buck brush and the water boiled as he started Us retrieve. Moments, later, he hefted a five-poundl bass into the boat. 'I told you they often lay off this point," he said. Ray was preparing to compete in the 197.3 Kentucky Lake nvitatlon professional fishing ournament, which was to be held June 2-3 wifh more than 200 fishermen competing for a total purse of more than $10,000. I also was preparing to fish foe tournamcntr-my first pro adventure—and Ray had taken me under his wing to show me what to expect. We worked the area a few more minutes, then switched over to lihe second point on the oovc. My first cast to the point rolled once, and when (the char' treusc-colored deep diving plug hat resembled a crawfish hit he water the second time, it was engulfed by a fotr-flound bucketmouth. A couple of minutes later, the fish was swimming side-by-side with Ray's in the live well- nine pounds of fish in less than 10 minutes. "Don't ithink we're going to do this all the time," Ray said grinning. "But if you start out this way in the tournament, you'll be doing all right." We caught several more fish hat day in holps Ray had already located. But the next morning, things were entirely different. The lake had risen n foot from the day before. And when the level of this 160,000- acre lake was altered by the workings of the Kentucky Lake Dam, the fish left all the holes we had found. In 10 hours of fishing the second day, we boated only two keeper-size fish. "This is why you have to get to the lake early before a tournament," Ray said. "You've got to find the bass and refind them. I've changed patterns four times since I came a week ago. "You have to establish patterns so you know what you're going to do when the tournament starts." Marina of Chicago. He feels fishing pro tournaments is one way he can better come to understand the needs of his customers, many of whom are bassmen themselves. But also there is the challenge of competition, of proving he is one of the best. For Ray that means long hours of searching out fishing holes on strange lakes and studying and restudying navigational charts, looking for old creek beds with stumps on the bottom that might hide lunker fish. It means making-his own maps and, most importantly, being able to lake fish under any conditions. In a tournament, such as this Bass Casters Association sponsored event, each contestant must fish with a different part ner each day and that partner gets to say what areas will be fished for one-half the day. If a bassman can outfish 200 or more opponents—all first-rate pros from throughout the country—and come out on top, then he can expect about $3,000 for fiis efforts. Ray is one of those more than 200 hoping to do so. GIVITHfM! Give %wS NORTH SID1 0RUO 1176 ffd. SMttflitf It. 34M1IS READ THE WANT ADS1 INSURANCE.

Supersonic Suitor: The Russians are trying to woo U.S. airlines into buying the Tupolev 144, the Russian supersonic jet transport. Soviet officials at the 30th air show at Le Bourget airfield outside • Paris invited officials from Pan American, TWA and other airlines as well as officials from Lockheed, Northrup, Boeing and other plane makers to visit the Tupolev 144 and drink vodka. No price was quoted because the Tupolev is not fori sale yet but western air officials expected it may be in the future, and at a price lower than the Anglo-French Concorde. Air show circles laughingly call the 144 the "Concorde- off' because the new version now resembles a knock-off of the Concorde.
