Berkeley Ave. offers the following suggestions to increase your fishing score. "Now is the best time of year to fish for crappie In lakes or slow-current streams. The fish feed usually near deep rock ledges, submerged brush and stumps, and also, at the edge of water currents. Large crappie will strike oftcner in the spring. "Flyrod fishermen should use a medium-sized fly with a shot sinker on a four-foot leader while cat- ing near the edge of water current. An extra shot sinker added to the leader is necessary for fishing off deep ledges. Cast into the water and allow the fly to sink to the bottom and then retrieve in short jerks. If any crappie are nearby, you will get action. Advisable to Experiment "If you prefer to use live bait, use small of medium sixed-min- nows on a small hook attached to a light leader. Weight the line so that you can begin fishing on the botton and then work the minnow upwards until you find the depth at which the fish are striking. "A ,little experimenting to find the correct depth will pay more returns in your score as well as your pleasure. River Flatting "Those who prefer fishing in the Mississippi and Alton Lake will find the white perch and catfish will strike on small minnows, crawfish, or worms at the edge of swift ccurrent or Whirling waters. The best places to catch the fish are on sandy bottoms near dikes, shallow waters on either side or near sandbars. Fishing near sub- mqrged dikes is effective, too. "Cast your line from 50 to 150 feet into the water a few times until you locate where the -fish are striking. Again, it is best to experiment in order to find a school of fish which mill around constantly. After a little practice, you will learn to read the waters for the best fishing. "You will be surprised pleasantly at your increased fishing results if you try the foregoing fishing methods." Recently, Reeder landed two five pound and a three-pound catfish on a rod and reel while fishing in the Mississippi River downstream from* Alton Locks and Dam. Personal Notes The fish were not, biting too well on Piasa Creek Tuesday, when Thomas J. Howard, 945 McKinley Ave,, ancLGayle Forcade, 1110 Alby St., tried their skill. They managed to land only three small fish. Clyde Hawkins of West Alton has been successful at catching fish on bank throw lines on the Missouri River recently. He places the lines at nfeht and runs them in the morning. A recent catch was t\\'o catfish and five sturgeon, (tuna fisli of the river i. Reports are i hat the Missouri River current is loo swift for normal trot- line fishing by anchoring the line to a float in midstream. Another couple plan to build a fishing-hunting resort in the future. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Melton, Al- ton-Jerseyville Rd., hope to visit many lakes this summer and choose a site for their resort. Melton will retire in a few years and they would like to have their camp ready to operate. They will visit Lake' Norfork, Bull Shoala Lake, Lake of the Ozarks and other resort areas. 4 9 Unhurt After Being Ran Over by Tractor MORO Raymond Jr.. four-year- old son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Holmknmp of Midway, escaped serious injury Wednesday when he was run over by a tractor.
