Brighton Fishing Hewitt Last weekend, Mr. and Mi*. L. Browning of East Alton landed 13 white perch averaging two pounds or more and three chan nel catfish weighing two pounds each at Oaklane Fishing Resort 2f4 miles northwest of Brighton. Don IMvely of Alton landed aeven channel catfish averaging three pounds. George W. Hill of Woodburn caught three channel catfish and three white perch averaging up to three pounds. Rough Fish Bonania The catfish, perch and carp,, till of eating size were biting! furiously in a drainage ditch last i Sunday near Eldred for Ous Bechdotdt, and George Leone, both of Elm street, and Bech-i dolflt's brother-in-law, Qrvtllej Waters and Children, Tout, and: Rotart, of Eldred. The group/ landed more than 50 fish in one' of their best fishing trips of the season. ' Effective BBS* Lure I. M. Steele, 860 Lorena Ave., . Wood River, is convinced that a; black plastic eel or woi'm is the: best lure for bass. Oh a recent occasion he fished in a Godfrey lake and took seven bass in a three hour period on the lure. The largest bass weighed 4V» pounds, another 3»i pounds and the other / exceed two pounds. The 'lure should be retrieved along; the bottom very slowly and ini slight twitches, he said. < Steele and his wife, Delia, fbuiid the bluegitl biting at a bor- rO>V pit near Hardin arid also in Gilead Slough on other occasions.; When the fish quit biting on the ; latter 'occasion, he checked hisi barometer, usually carried from the front room in his tackle box,, and found it falling. Steele said 1 the barometer is an excellent! fishing indicator. On a rising) barometer the fish will bite butj quit cold when it falls. , The Steeles had a harrowing experience this spring while fishing in a lake near Brighton. Thei boat swamped 40 to 50 feeMrom! shor# -when. &rsf Sfeetg tffjable to .swim, attempted to pilB up the anchor. Jfertuliiately^she wasj wearing a life jacket instead of! just having it handy,, as oneWher 1 occasions, hips Husband said. She. held on to the boat while her husband and another unidentified angler came to the rescue. ! Dressing l'"i*li A Bethalto angler who landed; a large number Of fish recently at | a lake north of Pere Marquette Park says that accomodations to • clean fish should be part of the! facilities. Normally in regular j fishing resort areas, such accom- odntions are common. He pointed j out that some anglers clean t their fish on the bank unobserved near the lake landing and toss the remains into the lake. He added that tossing the remains into the lake can cause pollution. Many other anglers, including commercial fishermen and-this'writer, have found that the remains of dressed fish makes excellent cttt bait for trot lines, It is obvious then that any fish* remain* tossed into the wat-j er will be' sought 'and eaten by both, rough, fish and turtles. Biologists say that this is nature's sanitation system which is highly ef^tve. > ' ' • i Tnjp wfjter <te 'arre^ng those j who -prefers to dress fish -before! brtngbHf th^n horn*.
