Aubrey Shepherd New Bass Lure Spoils Carp Man Jim Green of West Fork has caught carp up to 25 pounds; to he wasn't unused to getting · big fight out of a fish on light tackle. But last Sunday, May 19, Jim w a s pleasantly surprised when he hooked three largemouth bass on (would you believe it?) Wheatie balls--the breakfast of champion sized carp. Jim landed two of the bass. One was small: the other weighed approximately five pounds and measured 22 Inches in length, even with its mouth closed. That is a keeper in anybody's tournament! Monday afternoon Jim Green was back at the same hole on the West Fork of the White River. Do you suppose he was using Wheatie balls? No, he was causing bass plugs, and he went home without a fish. But he did hook one fish, and it broke his line. Do you suppose Jim will get back to business pretty soon with his carp bait and find out whether his ·trange Sunday luck will be repeated? · If word of Green s Wheatie ball bass catch gets around, next year on the B.A.S.S. tournament trail an exchange something like this may be heard: "Bill, what color Wheatie balls were you using?" "Gee, Roland, I really cant remember, but after tomorrow's weighin I'll probably be able to tell you." "Look, Dance, at least give me a hint about size and shape." "Well, Roland. 1 suggest using whatever size you can cast best. In muddy water I use large Wheatie balls and cast with 20 pound test line. But down lake, in the super clear water, I go to tiny gobs and eight pound test line." I m p o s s i b l e , you say? Probably unlikely, but although live bait is prohibited in most tournaments, Ray S c o t t station in Little Rock.

G.B Milwaukee 19 !7 .528 Boston 21 19 .525 -- everyone who visits Olliverson's Resort is from Arkansas. A party of eleven -- four men and seven boys -- from Chicago were fishing the Olliverson's last Sunday, group included Burt, B r y a n and Jordan Seifer, three very friendly midwestemers appeared to know their around the fishing waters of the central states. Burt explained that the group started fishing together seven years ago. when Jordan was ten years old. Each year they go somewhere different. One year they visited Canada, another they visited Minnesota, then Wisconsin, Iowa, upper Bull Shoals finally they OUivcrson's Dock on the White River. According to Burt, who manages Scott Stainless Steel in Chicago, the guys rate themselves as the worst eleven fishermen in the United States. But anyone watching them handling their equipment could sec that those years of family outings have resulted in good discipline and a measure of expertise. Jerry Levy, who operates a collection agency, is contending for the groups's hard luck prize. In the last three years, Jerry has not taken a fish on the group's trips. The other two fathers in the group -- A r t Krause, a C.P.A., and Marvin Baltimore Detroit Cleveland New York Oakland Chicago Texas Kansas City California Minnesota (Missouri), and showed up Freid, who runs janitorial I LIKE THEM JUST SO ... St. Louts Cardinal batting sensation Reggie Smith, right, shows Cardinal manager Red Schoendienst the way he likes them as they get together in the locker- room prior to Wednesday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Besides, what else could better qualify as an Has anyone artificial lure? ever seen Wheatie ball swimming around on its own? Bill Kennan, Jr., of Fayetteville also had some s t r a n g e luck r e c e n t l y . Bill and Dave D o b k i n s were having a little bit of success below Sequoyah Lake dam one evening, when a cottonmouth water moccasin struck and then swallowed first a white bass and then a crappie which the two men had placed on a stringer. The final fate of the «nake was not reported, but it seems a safe bet that Bill gave up all thoughts of having fish for supper that night. Sunday, May 19, Don Flynn of Faycttcville caught a limit of trout from the White River below Bull Shoals Dam. Don formerly was a guide for BUI Olliverson's Tr o u t Fishing Resort near Flippin, Arkansas; therefore, Stu and Audrey Stetson, owners and operators of the resort, were not surprised when Don and his party brought in a nice stringer of keepers last Sunday. SUPER TROUT FISHING After two weeks of super trout fishing on the White, last weekend was relatively poor. But Don used a bit of imagination and a suggestion of Stu's -- to try a certain creek where it came into the river - - to find some trout in a small piece of water unlike t h a t usually associated with White River trout fishing. Harold M c D u f f i e . Don and this columnist made a lot of waves and spooked a lot of large trout going up the tiny inlet, but in a small hole of water, cut off from the river as the water fell, some captive trout were found in a beautiful setting rivaling any trout stream this supply house -- seem to be having better luck than Jerry. ' SHOULDA BEEN HERE According to Burt Seifer, the laddest words the group can hear when they make their yearly pilgrimages to some nationally known shrine of 'ishing are "You shoulda been here last week!" Luckily for most Arkansans, that phrase is not so frustrating, for the White River Trout Fisherery is within a few hours drive for almost anyone in the state. Arkansans don't have to be as persistent as those Chicagoans -- who once took a forty mile boat ride in the rain to reach a good Northern Pike fishing spot in Canada -- to find good fishing. Audrey Stetson cooks aboul the best breakfast for sale in Arkansas. It is guaranteed to make the unluckiest fisherman forget about losing the big one. Eggs, marvelous gravy with a cheesy and peppery taste, sacon fried just right, plenty of biscuits, hash brown potatoes, an endless supply of coffee and the biggest pats of butter you'll ever want are all part of the standard fare at Olliverson's. The water coming out of Bull Shoals Dam is from the bottom of the lake. Thus it is always very cool and just right for the the slugging of Del Unser in a 7-1 waltz past the St. Louis Cardinals. Schueler .authored a two-hitter, equaling his major league best, as the Phils opened a two game gap over the Montreal Expos in the N.L. East. And Unser, whom Ozark labels "unheralded," powered a run-scoring single and two-run homer in boosting his batting average to a lofty .353. "Anybody know the count El Paso Diablos Battle Past Feisty Midland Cubs By The Associated Press i E! Paso's Diablos came out on top 5-4 in a bedeviling 13- inning Texas League baseball duel with the Midland Cubs Wednesday night in a drive to catch west division leader San Antonio. Diablos batters tallied three runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie the score after Midland had led most of the contest. Dan Briggs led off the El Paso 13th with a triple off ttie right field wall and Midland strategists elected to load the bases with intentional walks to the next two batters. However, the ploy failed when the next batter--outfielder Jose Ortiz- slammed a line drive to send Briggs scurrying home. fa other games, lowly Shreye- port knocked off East Division leader Victoria 3-2 while San Antonio held onto its 1V4 game Division lead by belting Ama- illo 3-2. San Antonio won its contest n the third inning when Mike Brooks drove across the dec! sive run with a ground ball Amarillo scored two runs in the second, San Antonio platec three in the third and from there on out it was a stalemate Shreveport grabbed its victo ry from East Division leadei Victoria in. the fifth inninj when Sammy Mejias blaste his fourth homer tn fou straight home games. Thi Shrcveport Captains picked u two runs in the third while Vic toria added a run in each thi first and fourth innings. However, after the fourth Victoria never got a scoring drive going again. The same teams play in th' same cities tonight. 'hen Unser got that first base it?" queried Ozark, who was eveling in the Phils' three- ame sweep. "Three-and-zero, right?" he ejoined. "Unser's a guy who a me over from the American League without much being aid. "He's kind of quiet and he's eally devoted," Ozark added. 'Everything's business to him. He loves to play and he loves to ·in." The victorj' wrapped up a 5-1 Philadelphia trip on the heels an 8-4 homestead,, with tight itching and timely hitting the lallmarks. "After we had that poor trip 1-6) to the West Coast we iurned it around," remarked Ozark, whose club has a 23-17 mark after standing 10-12 on May 1. Schueler, obtained from the Atlanta Braves, yielded a leadoff double to Lou Brock opening .he game and lost his shutout id to Jose Cruz second home run. In between he retired 11 straight Cardinals and afte ward he put runners aboard only by hitting Joe Torre with a pitch and walking Jim Hickman in facing 32 hitters. "I'd have to say it was my best game because I was in command of all my pitches." acknowledged Schueler, who squared his record at 3-3. "I got some runs early and I just concentrated on putting the first pitch over for a strike." added the 26-year-old, blond right-hander. 17 15 20 19 18 23 15 21 13 23 West Los Angeles 31 11 Cincinnati 20 18 San Francisco 23 2L Atlanta 22 21 22 23 17 29 .728 -.526 9 .523 9 .512' 9' .409 10 .370 16 Houston San Diego Wednesday's Games Atlanta 6, San Francisco 2 Pittsburgh at Montreal, ppd rain Chicago 9, New York 6 Philadelphia 7.

Testimony was to resume tr ay in Marion County Superior ourt on a lawsuit that sought reopen qualifications for the unday, May 26, race to five ntrants who claim they were eprived of a chance to make he field. Attorneys for the five plaint- ffs Roy Woods Racing. Carl Gehlhause, K L Racing, El oni Rasmus sen Racing Prod- jcts and Webster Racing, ailed three of a planned 47 itnesses Wednesday after ense attempts to kill the suit ailed. One witness. Indianapolis Moor Speedway Vice Presidenl Cloutier. said that one of he plaintiffs, if allowed to qualify now for the S3 car field might "win the race, and that vould bring the other cars in he field down on us." He added, "At stake here is not only the prize money, bu he prestige and commercia endorsements that can run into million's for the winner. We'd have lawsuits from every othe driver now in the field, if tha happened." Chief Steward Tom Binfoi estified that the cars left wait ng in line when time trial ended Saturday at 6 p.m. wer no longer guaranteed at leas "One car that went throogh line before them was on its econd attempt, although the rst time out with a new drlv- he said. "That broke th» le of first-time qualifiers." Those suing contend that tha r in question. No. 94. driven rookie Johnny Parsons, was properly placed in line and en moved ahead of others. "What we wanted to bring ut," said plaintiffs' attorney hen Binford let the car in the on A. Tabbert, "was that neup. he was in effect dis- ualifying unjustly the other irs in line." Binford also testified that the ack was closed by rain for all ut about five of the 14 hours lotted for qualification runs is year, Tabbert contended there was ufficient time for qualification tempts by only "about 38 or "" of the 68 entrants. Regardless of the outcome, ^rburetion tests were scheduled today for the 33 cars in tha eld and two alternates. Also planned was a five-mile icycle race around the track earning the drivers and guests. Brewer Yet To Choose FORT SMITH, Ark.

Harold McDuffie of Hatfield found the going tough, as he tried to use the fly fishing methods which have broughl him success in the western states. Harold had his best luck in the main river using a spoon. Don Flynn, however, showed . the tenacity wl ' comes with experience in kind of fishing. He stuck it out with the fish in the hole, managing to take several while he was perched on a huge boulder in the center of the small stream. Bob Beeler and Helmich found some nice trout up near Bull Shoals Dam. They reported that a tiny Mepps spinner in a color recommended by Stu did the trick for them. Like Don, Bob is a university student. Ed owns a semi temperature temperature; morning fog is a standard feature of a trip to Olliverson's. Of course, travelers in the pzarks arc accustomed to fog in the valleys: so they aren't surprised to see it on the White River. But anglers find them selves in a mysterious world during the several hours before the s_un's rays begin to reach the river and dissipate the fog. Ed Helmich testified to casting "farther than he could sec." early on that Sunday morning. Harold McDuffie commented on the eerie quality of the voices of fishermen in nearby boats which were totally unseen and unnoticed until their sounds drifted across the rip pling river waters. Part of the excitement of fishing the White below any of the big reservoir dams is thai the angler never can predict what the water level will be from one hour to the next.

This knowledge is especially important in deciding when not to bother to tish. Mrs. Stetson's shore breakfast is always in the back of the guide's mind; so he is unlikely to let a party sit too long when the water is not just right.
