·C · Morthw** AricanMs TIMES, Sun., May 36, 1974 Aubrey Shepherd Arkansas Ponds, Mexican Lakes With Catch Of 17 Pounds, Four Ounces Carnes 34th. At Table Rock : Carey Adams recently caught a five pound large- · mouth bass from a farm pond belonging to Mr. and · Mrs. Cliff Mills of Brentwood, Arkansas. Carey's : grandson, Travis Adams, assisted in landing the lunker ·'bucketmoulh. Using crappie minnows, like his grand:-father, Travis caught a sunfish of about V* pound. ^The Adamses were using rods and reels to throw the minnows out near the center of the small pond. : Carey reports taking a few small bass every time : he visits the pond. '· Gene Mills from Sapulpa, Oklahoma, caught a six 1 pound largemouth bass from a farm pond belonging Ho Raymond Hughes of Brenlwood. Gene was using a "twin spin lure with a plastic worm attached to its ·hook. For many people a trip to the lake is impossible · o r at least impractical. To take full advantage of a Make such as Beaver, one must buy, borrow or rent : a boat, preferably a rather large one. '· The sort of bass boats popular with fishermen · t o d a y sell for prices between 1,000 and 6,000 dollars. : Fully equipped rigs of this sort are d i f f i c u l t to borrow, · for obvious reasons. Rental rates for fishing boats " on Beaver Reservoir vary from about 14 to 35 dollars : per daj', depending on the type of boat and the size -of motor. Smaller lakes in the area rent boats for somewhat less. Fishing from the shore of a lake is occasionally '-productive, but very few fishermen are fortunate ; enough to find a good spot on the shore of a lake. · But farm ponds provide an alternative to lake fish- '-ing. The U.S. government has helped to f u n d the build: ing of thousands of farm ponds in almost every rural - a r e a of the country- While ecologists, nature lovers, : bird watchers, hunters, farmers, ranchers ,and fisher:men frequently criticize the government for damming streams and for channelizing others, almost no one ': criticizes the government for helping to build farm . ponds. · Farm ponds of many sizes and shapes may be . found, but they are commonly only one acre or so. -Even these tiny ponds may produce an amazing num- ^ber of edible fish each year. A pond of several acres . may provide recreational opportunity for a great number of people. ; Andy Lewis reports a trip to Lake Dominguez was ' enjoyed by a party of anglers from Northwest Arkan- Herb Lewis, Lyn Smith, Jim Bryant, and several r other members of the Arkansas Automobile Dealers ; Association visited the Mexican lake early in May. The f group fished for 2V4 days, utilizing a package deal of boats, guides, accommodations and meals provided by . SW Fishing and Hunting Service of Dallas, Texas. By AUBREY SHEPHERD Bob Games of Springdale finished in thirty-fourth place in the 1974 National Bassmastcr this week at Table Rock Reservoir, With 144 men enteretd. Bob's firtKh was goo denough to get him into the prizes, but no other member of the six- man Arkansas team finished in the money. Carnes recejved the Arkansas award for highest on the state team for his catch of 17 pounds, four ounces of black bass. Bob reported catching most of his fish on a jig and eel during the first two days of the tournament. On the last day he found bass suspended around tree tops in fifty feet of water. He caught his last day's fish on a top water plug. The winning team of the tourney was Missouri. The overall winner was Charley Campbell of Forsyth, Mo. The top individual wins free entry into one B.A.S.S. tourney next year as well as a free trip to compete in the Miller B.A.S.S. Classic. Missouri will take the largesl share of the $8,250 earmarked First Trip To Mexico The fishing in old Mexico was excellent. Large; mouth bass were the quarry, but a few fishermen caught occasional Rio Grande perch, which Andy de- scribed as big, black tropical looking fish, shaped like "bream or crappie. Although the guides prefer to troll, :the local anglers found that by insisting they could 'persuade the guides to allow them to cast once a con- ,'centration of fish was located by trolling. Productive lures on Lake Dominguez were plastic 'worms, hellbenders, hotspots, and spinner baits. Red : and blue worms and yellow and white hellbenders (CONTINUED ON PAGE DC) 'Possible Kit' Recommended For Boaters Is your "possible kit" in gooc order? A possible kit is the moder version of the old-time moun tain man's "possible bag," deerskin pouch which containe flint and steel, dry gunpowder knife and whatever else the wilderness traveler wanted. Hi thought was that if his pa'cl and gear were lost, he'd hav enough tools in his possible ba -- tied around his waist -- I f i n d h i s w a y back civilization. Modern boaters have littl use for dry gunpowder, but possible kit could make lil much more comfortable whe bad weather, mechanical fai ure, or fuel shortage makes impossible to return to th marina. The modern possible k contains items that requir little space when stowed aboa boat. A waterproof bag the beginning of your ki Choose each item that goes inl the bag for its ability to kee you warm and dry. Plasc a 10 x 12-foot plast sheet in the bag first. This w. serve as a shelter in case · rain, and will help protect othi items in the bag from moisture Next add a change of clothe and a folding cap. Put in waterproof, screw-top plast jar filled with kitchen matche Add some canned food, a opener, a quart canteen water, a cup and spoon, some newspaper folded insi a small plastic bag. Now you can cover-up in ca it rains; change clothes if y get wet; start a fire with t matches and paper; cook in t! cans, and have a drink of fre water when you want.

Missouri ok second last year and used money for studying the mig- tion pattetrns of pass in Table ock Lake. Susie Mhoon, wife of another rkansas team member, ex- ained that each time she talk- with her husband Roger this eek, ttie weather seemed to be anging and was usually much fferent from the weather in ayetteville. T h e erratic eather seemed to cause the sh to move about. Bob Carnes said that despite e erratic weather the Arkanas team members all found sh in practice. Bob found the umpback Rebel and other mall crank baits working ractice. But during the actual shing days the crank bails ere not working for Boh. Bob had nothing but praise r the administration of the surnament. He said that of all tournaments he has ever ntered this one was the best om the standpoint of fellow- hip and hospitality.

Joe Crowden of Fort Smith, Richard Garlough of Mountain Home. Billy Tew of Dumas, Melvin Womack of ParagouM. and Roger Mhoon of Fayetteville were the other members of the Arkansas team. Roger epxlained that after the first day word spread that Campbell was catching his fish suspended over 50 to 100 feet of water near the last tree on every point. Most contestants could not believe that a top water lure was taking fish from such a location and refused to try the method. Charley Campbell's fifty-seven pounds proved the rumor true, how- PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Del Unser knocked in two runs with an eighth-inning single, pacing the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4 2 victory over the Montreal Expos and a sweep of their twinight doubleheader Satur- In the second game, the Phillies broke a 2-2 tie with their rally in the eighth.
