42 3nògpptiòftit-3puntal, Friday, March 8, 1974 FISH AND GAME By AL GIDDINGS Choosy Fish In The Boy This story on striped bass fishing will probably shake you up like it did me. There is really more to fishing than meets the eye. I spent a day fishing the shell ------------------------bank above China Camp in San Pablo Bay this past week, anchored right in the center of 10 boats all loaded with fishermen. It was a nice calm day with an outgoing tide. I set the anchor just as the outgoing flow started. I had about 25 fresh ghost shrimp for bait. I was able to observe all the fishermen in the other boats closely, so I kept a log on each. One boat with seven anglers was anchored about 100 yards from me. The fishermen on this boat were using live mudsuck- ers for bait. I did not have a strike in three hours, but those seven guys were having a field day. They caught 14 stripers which averaged probably 12 pounds each in weight. The anglers on one of the other boats, also using mudsuckers, caught three bass. Not one fis- erhman in any of the other boats ever set his rod; none was using mudsuckers. They were using bullheads, grass shrimp and ghost shrimp, all proven bass baits. I'VE FISHED THIS same area many years successfully with ghost shrimp, and on the same type of tide, and at the same time of the year. Here was an area loaded with fish, yet they took just one type of bait. It couldn’t be possible that the live baits could attract all the fish in such a large area — or could it be? Most of us have the feeling that any bait in the right place will catch fish, but I'm beginning to believe that fish are far more discerning than the way we have them figured. It seems that when the bullheads are around, that’s the bait to use: or if the shiner perch are around the piers, that’s the bait to use. Trolling jigs seems seem to simulate either the perch or small smelt, so are also successful in the spring. But ghost shrimp are always around, being a natural bay bait. I don't know the answer. NOW LISTEN to this. one bait shop (not in Marin County) bought some baits called gobies from Southern California. These baits look like a mud- sucker’s twin brother, but the anglers who used those last week couldn't get a strike with GOLF NOTES them as bait. The anglers were mad as hornets. And now for a final mind wracker. One party boat skipper who uses mud­ suckers says, “A striper will take a male mudsucker at times, but if you put a female on — you’ve got a cinch fish!” Me, I can’t tell one mudsuck­ er from another, but in the fish families, the females are usually the larger of the two, so pick out big ones when you can buy them. Of course, getting mud­ suckers from the bait shops is getting to be almost an impossible feat. But get some ghost shrimp, go up to the shellbank this weekend, and watch the boys using mudsuckers give you a fishing lesson. I sure got one. IF YOU ARE A GUN collector, the new 1974 Gun Collectors Digest has just been released. The new book from Digest Books, Inc., 540 Frontage Road, Northfield, 111 , holds more information than has ever before been devoted to this many faceted hobby. The book is now- available for $6.95 at gun shops, sporting goods stores and wherever books are sold, or direct from Digest Books. ‘ Restoring Rare Guns,” by John Kaufield, “Smith and Wesson — Pioneers in Cartridge Pistols,” by James Serven, and a feature article discussing how- to cope with “The Gun Control Law of 1968” are three key articles in the Digest. RECENTLY. A NUMBER of persons had reported seeing wolverines in eastern Shasta County and in Trinity County. The animal is on the list of furbearers fully protected by law and is classified as one of California’s rare animals. The reported sightings created great interest, and two fish and game biologists. Bud Pyshorea and Dave Smith were assinged to check out the reports. The two biologists set out cross county on skis to set up a bait station in a remote area south of Burney. Four black hairs were later found clinging to some barbed wire placed around the bait. The hairs were sent to the Fish and Game laboratory where it was confirmed they were from the rarely seen wolverine That’s good news. Professional Day Set For Mill Valley It’s Professional Day for the juniors at Mill Valley Municipal Golf Course "All that (the golf tourney title) means is that I donate first prize,” said Tom Wishon, Mill Valley assistant pro. The Mill Valley Junior Golf Club tourney will be held March 16 at 9 a.m. Club members or those paying the $3 yearly dues can play. Wishon anticipates about 20 participants for the 18-hole event Entry fee is SI "They can sign just by showing up around tee off time,” Wishon said. Golf accessory prizes w-ill be awarded for low- net and low gross winners. FAITHFUL FRIEND Like an obedient dog, a self-propelled golf bag wheels around the Peacock Gap course in San Rafael. It follows the golfer This Auto Rover “works great.” according to Mark Medina, pro shop assistant. He and pro Gene Coghill have tested the device. "We like it. We’ve had it here for a couple of weeks now, and it seems to be very popular.” It costs $800, but Medina is confident it will catch on. “A couple of our club members have tried it. They like it, too .” Unfortunately, it isn’t for sale to private parties. The device is controlled by a radio signal from the player. The control unit can be attached to the golfer’s belt. So where the golfer goes, the cart and bag follow. PEACOCK GAP (Guest Day) I j OW Gross — Mrs. M S Stone, S3. Hole In One — Mrs Frank Kurtz, 11 ft.. 1 in.

(CPI Telephoto) TOURNEY BEGINS By UNITED PRESS The National Collegiate Athletic Association’s major college tournament begins this weekend, while top-ranked North Carolina State and defending champion UCLA are still struggling for a berth in the post-season national championship chase. N.C. State is confronted by the Tobacco Road’s March madness known as the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. In order to survive the ACC tourney, the W’olfpack will have to beat either No. 4 North Carolina or No. 5 Maryland in the final game Meanwhile, UCLA's lronfisted grip on the national championship will disappear if the Bruins are unable to win at Southern California. The No. 7 Trojans are tied with UCLA atop the Pacific-8 Conference and the winner of Saturday's game will move into the NCAA Western regionals next weekend. Another key piece in the NCAA tournament puzzle, the Big Ten representative, might be resolved Saturday. Then again, it might not. No. 10 Indiana is tied with No. 19 for the league lead. Depending on the outcome of Indiana’s home game with Purdue, only a game behind the Hoosiers, and Michigan’s contest at Michigan State, a champ will be crowned Saturday or a playoff will be necessary Monday.

It said the following commu­ nique was released after a meeting in Paris yesterday: “The first European professional basketball league was created in Paris Thursday by several personalities who wish to remain anonymous but who have supported for a long time the establishment of professional competition in Europe. "The new league, which will group eight teams in a championship of two groups of four, will carry the name, the European Basketball Association. "The responsibility for its organization has been entrusted to Bernard Ulrich, a Parisian jurist specialized in management. Four cities from several countries have already indicated they w'ill take part and the four remaining places will be attributed in the future.” More Basketball KENT.

Washington Is Leader In Swim SEATTLE (UPI) - Washington took a surprising first-round lead in the first day of the Pacific Eight swimming and diving championships on a disqualification against meet favorite Southern California in the 400-yard medley relay. After the first five events yesterday Washington led with 104 points, USC had .97, Stanford 79, Oregon 63, California 50 and Oregon State 31. Washington's Robin Backhaus, a Marin Aquatic Club swimmer, won the 500-yard freestle in 4:33.81. Two Marin A. C. and Husky teammates placed in the even — Rick DeMont finishing fourth in 4:36.64 and Doug Northway was sixth in 4:39.23. It was never intended as a “destination” type resort with condominiums springing up all around, with shops, swimming pools, tennis courts etc. That is not Dodge Ridge. It’s just for skiing and the resort has been successful at that for 24 years. There is no overnight lodge overlooking the slopes — just a large day lodge. And you go there to ski and that's it. Much of the reason for Dodge's financial success and popularity as “California’s foremost family resort" is that the chiefs who run the area have been around and together a long time. They are mainly, manager Earl Purdy and ski school boss Ray Patton. And many of the other administrators have been there for years. As mentioned, Dodge’s main appeal is to the skiing family, and you’ll always see lots of kids there. And speaking of kids, the “Bunny Den” nursery is one of the top such places in California. If your children are 2 to 8 years old, it's a fine spot to leave them — if they are not skiing. The skiing at Dodge is not going to challenge someone looking for real excitement, but lhat's not what Dodge is all about. They leave the heavy runs to Squaw, Heavenly and some of the other resorts. Most all of the runs at Dodge are for the intermediate skier and there are many such runs. The beginner, too. gets a fair shake. There are six double chairlifts ranging in length from 1,700 feet to 3,600. With all the*expe rience of those in charge at Dodge Ridge, you’d expect the grooming to be excellent — jnd it is. Dodge has several package plans with their ski scl»o! rental shop etc. An interesting mid-week special includes a night in a nearby lodge, breakfast, dinner, morning lesson and unlimited use of the tows $20. Parking around Dodge ,can become a small problem, ;but that is solved by a shuttle-bus running people to and fronrthe slopes. One of the big events each year at Dodge is the Far West Veterans Giant Slalom Championships. During the past weekend, the 13th event was held and the fastest time was posted by Martin Sulser of San Francisco. “Veterans” are those racers over 28 years old, and -there are five different classes for men and four for women - with racers well over 60 taking part Other top finishers in the Far West Championships included Wulf Clemens of TiburonJ Rex Carson of San Rafael, Daniel Collin of Fairfax, and Thomas Eason. Mill Valley. By California stand^ids. Dodge is one of the closest resorts to the Bay Area, ;It's only 163 miles from San Ffan cisco, and when chains ‘are required it’s usually for not too many miles to Dodge. Whei^ is it? About 30 miles from historic Sonora, in the heart of the §old Rush country. n — SPORTS SCOREBOARD Basketball NBA Standings Pastern Conference Atlantic Division West i*i XV 1 pet 8 b Boston47 21 691 — New York 45 27 6254 Buffalo 38 3452811 Philadelphia 21 48 304 26 G Central Division w 1 pet (I) Capital4o 31 563 — Atlanta 30 42417 10‘-s Houston 27 44 .380 13 Cleveland 24 48 .333 16 (i We-tern Conference Midwest Division M 1 pet ft b Milwaukee 53 20 726 — Chicago » 24 671 4 Detroit46 26639 KC Omaha 27 4736526 4 Pacific Division w 1pet K b (¡olden State 39 29 374 — l»s Angeles40 31 563 4 Seattle 31 42125104 Phoenix 46 361 15 Portland 23 47329 17 Thursdav sResults (.olden State '*i Milwaukee 95 Boston 99 phoenix 97 ■ only games scheduled Tonight's (lames Seattle at Buffalo (¡olden State at Philadelphia Boston at Houston Detroit at I os Angeles only games scheduled I iah Indiana 3* 35 San Antonio 37 35 Denver 33 38 San Diego 30 (1 Thursday's Results Neu A ork 11 ( Denver 100 San Antonin Ox Carolina 00 Kentucky 103 Virginia 89 only games scheduled' West pet g h » I t pis gf* ga «4* - Philadelphia > 14 10 80 2W 128 521 0 Chicago 32 13 18 82 213. ¡30 514 94 Los Angeles 25 30 10 60 rXh 202 465 13 Atlanta 24 29 II 59 W9. 105 423 16 St liOuis 23 30 10 56 lif“ 178 Minnesota I* 29 16 52 18ff 22Ì Pittsburgh 21 35 7 49 J8I¡¡ 224 ( aliforma 12 44 9 33 ltbi 281 WHA Standings nocKey East »1 t pts fta New FingJand37 27 3 7724) 223 Toronto 34 29 4 72 Sa 231 NHL Standings Quebec < lev eland 33 30 30 28 3 6,9 67 256 215 2341 2)4 Chicago 29 32 3 61 212 227 East Jersey 2834 3 59 211 25 L » 1 I pt> gl K* i 1 Boston 43 12 8 94 287 173 West 4 Montreal 37 198 82 234189 tv11 pts Kl ga N Y Rangers35 1612 «2 247 186 Houston .19 21 5 83264 1811 Toronto» 21 13 73 235 191 Minnesota 37 26 2 76269 221 Buffalo 27 279 63 201 209 Edmonton 32301 65 21!)221 Detroit 22 32 10 54 213 258 Winnipeg30 31 565 214 271 N Y Islanders 15 32 15 45 149204 Vancouver 2341 046 238280 Vancouver 17 36 10 44 173 243 lavs Angeles 21 M (I 42 19ft 208 ABA Standings Neu York Kentuc k> ( arolina Virginia Memphis » I pet g b 45 27 625 — 43 26 623 h 44 31 24 47 18 53 587 24 3B 204 254 26 4 8 5 C6 fl 7It 7868 6 2700 Mi A,Intu Aulel H, Adlet ... f. 9 12 0169 6 54 0412 20 556 05 06 10 12 3653 I 44 0 1 1 16 5 1 6 41 1 1 11 1 12597 350 1 2 10 4 7 7 19 1 7 121 506 76 300 1 3 1043 I Ot 22 13 2 335.6 9 2903 4 19408 6026 14 3 195210 32 04 5 35399 50 29 15 4 14 60 11 40 04 6 53 39It 07 30 166 74 49 12 44 04 7 65 4 1 L .
