M · NorhSw** Arfcanwi T1MSS, Ttiurs., May 30, 1974 AHKANCJM 'tan Aubrey Shepherd Night Fishing Always Popular The time is rapidly approaching when night fishing will be very popular on area lakes. In fact, many local anglers have begun making night trips to the lake. When day-time fishing begins to slacken, the night fishermen will be legion. . Popular methods on the lakes will be to hang a lantern o na tree bridge piling and use minnows to take crappie, white bass and black bass or to fish the shorelines, shallow flats and points with various bass lures as is done during the day. Plastic worms, buzzing style spinner baits, top water plugs of all kinds and even certain noisy "crank baits" are likely choices of basscasters. Many nightfishermen will be using the new lanterns and oversized flashlights specially designed for night fishing. Others will use only a two-cell flashlight. All, however, must have the standard running lights required on boats by federal regulation. While some nightfishermen want all the light they can gel, others maintain that fish are spooked by any unnatural light. Such fishermen are hard to convince that even one of the new specially designed 'lights is acceptable. A high percentage of nightfishermen agree that relatively heavy tackle is necessary for night fishing. Hanging lures in trees is more common at night, even among excellent baitcasters. Inability to see down into the water or up into the brush along the shoreline may make dislodging snagged plugs difficult unless one uses very heavy line and simply jerks and pulls his lure loose, despite the dangers of this method. A few nightfishermen are also fanciers of ultra- light tackle and may be found fishing with, line so light that most bassmen would not be caugBt carrying home a spool of it as sewing thread for their wives. These fishermen work on the theory that small lures catch more fish than large lures catch. In certain. instances this idea may seem to be legitimate. Giant Lures Noisier Even though tiny lures may be easy for bass to mouth, giant lures simply outperform small lures when it comes to making noise. However, this fact may become invalid as the smaller crank baits become more popular and improved- versions are developed. Nearly all the popular lures developed during the last few years have some sort of device specially designed to produce sound. The sound-producing qualities of the spinner baits Is obvious. The new tandem spinners churn up the water when run near the surface. Their churning must be equally audible to the fish when it takes place beneath the surface. The surface lures -- chuggers, jitterbugs and plunk- ers -- make a sound obvious to the fisherman and keep him interested. Their effectiveness is well prov- en - .nil m/t Especially useful for deeper night fishing and for seeking suspended bass near points and submerged timber are the tailspin lures, such as Mann's Little George. The Super George and a brand-new entry on the market -- Gilmore's Ho Ho -- renresent an improvement on the tailspin idea. The Ho Ho and the improved George both feature a large sound chamber with multiple rattles. : The so-called crank baits, such as the Norman Little Scooper, the Magnum Scooper, the Bi? Jim, the Super R Rebel, the Humpback Rebel, the Big N and others, may be increasingly popular this summer. As fishermen develop confidence in a lure they begin to try it in all sorts of circumstances, not sticking to its intended or advertised use. With sound chambers and rattles inside to supplement their vibrations from wiggling through the water, these new lures are all more popular than the lures which started the rattle fad -- the Hot Spot. But many fishermen still swear by the old favorite. Plastic Worms Effective Plastic worms also have joined the ranks of the - rattlers. Specially designed miniature sound chambers made of plastic and containing lead shot may be pur- · chased for insertion in a plastic worm. Slip sinkers jj 1 r own sound chambers and rattles may be added to make the worm a really noisy lure. Ironically night bass fishermen have found the plastic worm a very effective lure for use without any of these devices, but many add the noise-makers in hopes of increasing the worm's appeal. The fact is that almost any lure which will catch fish will occasionally work at night when it is pre- semed in an area where fish are feeding. Therefore the main problem at night is the same as in the dav how to find fish. There are as many variations in fish- finding methods as there are fishermen.

Although UC f ° r S0me (imc in these are£ s n find that the activity A growing number of fishermen are using the Sow- nar Tables and other charts to help them accurately predict the times when fish will likely feed. The Solu- rar Tables have proved especially helpful to ni«ht- fishermen who know where to find a concentration of fish, for these lucky anglers may simply restrict their efforts to those hours recommended by the charts. Solunar Tables may be particularly useful to those who fish farm ponds and other small bodies of water at night. Because the fish are quite restricted in their choice of feeding locations, the plug-caster may cover most of the possible sites without much moving about. The pond fisherman may be limited in his choice of lures by the presence of vegetable matter in the water. Water lilies, water hyacinths, algae and various types of weeds may dictate the use of plastic frogs, plastic worms or other weedless lures, lave frogs and large live minnows are especially favored baits, especially when allowed to swim about freely on the surface. When a huge bass strikes a live bait in the dark of night, the pood fisherman may almost jump out. of his stti.

Then they wrestled to he ground, with Valentine grip- ling Wright in a vise : like head- ock. Flavors poured from both dugouts. Valentine will be lost to the Angels for two to three weeks because of his injury.
