Fishing Report By AUBREY SHEPHERD Mrs. Ames of White River Bait Shop reports some catfish and drum are being caught. Gary and Clay Ames, ages 12 and 13, caught some white bass this week near the Highway 45 bridge. The high water seems to hare brought the drum back; they are being caught on worms. The river has dropped a good bit, but is still sort of high. Apparently, many people lost their trotlines during the nigh water and few have started back on their catfishing near the shop. But catfishing should be good there now if someone would try it. Sandy Lengfeld and Cliff Wheatley caught 20 large bream Monday at Lake Wedington. They fished only about an hour, using earthworms. They caught six bass Monday, also. Two men-who did not identify themselves caught 17 bass from Wedington Tuesday night using Tiny Torpedoes. Another man caught a six pound catfish while bream fishing with a fly rod and earthworms. Lake Wedington produced a lot of bream this weekend. Bill Brady and friends caught about 20 bass Tuesday night using Luck Thirteen? and Tiny Torpedoes. Water is about normal level and is clearing up. Springdale S p o r t Shop says the water is clearing in Beaver, but few fishing reports are coming in. Bill McGinnis is expecting things to pick up t h i s week. He is among the merchants offering prizes to winners in this Sunday's Farmington Jaycees Bass Tournament on Beaver Lake. War Eagle Boat Dock says few people have been fishing lately. The water is clearing and 77 degrees on the surface. Visibility is about six inches at the dock. Lake Sequoyah fishing is improving daily. Don Luper and Harry Holt caught five crappie. Albert Lehman had four bass up to four pounds. Reba Davis caught a string of twenty - three crappie. The water is clearing well. The catfish are nesting in shallow water. J and J Sport Shop has received few good reports this week. Jim Hemingway is another of the merchant's offering a prize for the Farmington Jaycees bass tournament this weekend, according to Don Oiver of Farmington, Director of the tournament. Lake Fayeteville has produced well this week. Bream fi shearmen have been catching a lot of big bluegills and redears. averaging much heavier than usual. Also, catfish are being taken by the bream fishermen. The Thermocline is between six and 10 feet and the fish are shallow, according to Polly Ann Baker. Larry Dcwcese of Springdale took a limit of crappie, using small minnows. Another, day he got IS. Mr. and Mrs. Purdy of Springdale took a basketball of crappie and bluegills. Jimmy and Juanita Terry caught a bunch of big Wuegill and six channel catfish on Tuesday. Tommy Gils a n d Barry Wisdom brought in two strings of very big bream, four channel catfish and one bass. They used crickets from Everett's supply. G.D. Cochenour of Johnson took six channel catfish on livers. The Boy's Clubs a r e visiting the Fayetteville Dock for fishing every day now. Usually the boys catch a bunch of bream fishing from the docks and banks. Darrell Judy caught 7 or 8 bass Monday morning. Lige Phillips and Richard Clifton have been catching large numbers of all sorts of fish. They buy every kind of bait on hand and get some of everything. Bill Kennan caught a three pound channel catfish on upper White River using a beetle spin. Bill was floating with Bob Kramer of Fayetteville. Bill also caught 15 or 20 sunfish of various species. The catfish struck in an eddy just above a rapids and Bill dragged it through t h e rapids, unable to land it on his ultra-light spinning tackle. Water on the upper White is still fairly high and dingy but falling fast and clearing slowly. By this weekend, floaters will have to drag their canoes over most areas t h a t were exciting white water only last weekend. The fishing reported and Bill Kennan caught about forty fish Tuesday evening between 6:00 p.m. and dark, floating on the uper White River. Most were green sunfish (black perch) up to 10 inches long. Many w e r e longear sunfish up to six inches long. A few were bass -- one smallmouth about 12 inches long (released), one spotted (Kentucky) about seven inches long and several-largemouths from three to 12 inches long. Horseshoe Bend Marina's report was late this week and not as exciting as l a s t week when a 16 pound striper topped the list. Susie Mhoon caught a 5 and three-fourth pound largemouth and several smaller ones on a Mini-R. Steve Hand caught, on a Super Magnum Scooper (Norman), eight bass up to 3'/4 pounds. Loyd White (Whitey) got nine bass one day, five bass on two other days. These wighed up to 3V4 pounds; he used a plastic worm and a hoodler. On three occasions George Andreason had g o o d luck, taking seven, six and five blacks using plastic worms (rattler) and Mini-R. Don Asbell of Rogers got eight blacks up to nearly three pounds using a rattle head worm. E.J. Grady of Rogers got 15 blacks on two days using a Humpback Rebel in bone color. Crappie are coming in at 8 to 10 feet depth on minnows from the Cedar trees. Bass are in the flooded grass areas. Surface temperature is 78 degrees, meaning that the b l a c k s will soon be moving to deeper water.

Bob may be reached at night at 267-3307 or during office hours at Standard Register in Fayetteville The entry fee for the tourney, to get under way at 6:00 a.m. Sunday at Prairie Creek on Beaver Lake, is $25.00.

Chicago Blanks Pittsburgh M«Hhw»et Ajrfcaittos TIMES, Friday, June 21, 1974 C, MKAN*A* Mets Hold Off Tough Phils 2-1 Jerry Koosman shook off Jerry Grote. Then Mike Schmidt shook lip Jerry Koosman. Picking on a Koosman curve ball, the Philadelphia slugger belted a ball to the base of the center field wall before Dave Schneck hauled it in. That out preserved a 2-1 victory for the New York Mets Thursday night but left Koosman shaking his head. "It was a tough, exciting game and I should have made better pitches," said Koosman after giving up 11 hits to the National League East leaders. "There were pitches they should have hit and didn't. It was a struggle." Koosman was in trouble down to the end, when the Phillies had a man on first and second base with two out and the dan- gerous Schmidt at the plate. With the count three balls and one strike, New York catcher Grote called for a fast ball and then a' curve, but Koosman decided against both. "If Schmidt is going to.beat me, it's ·going to be with an White Looking For Test From Outside State RUSSELLVILLE. Ark. (AP) -- Paul White, who has competed againsc the tape measure all spring, will have flesh and blood opponents this weekend. White, the 6-foot-fi, 270-pound- er from Russellvilie who set the state shot put record of 65-10% last month, will compete Saturday in the Golden West Relays in Sacramento. Calif. His throw ranks No. ' 1 in the nation among high school athletes. No one in Arkansas came within 10 feet of White's toss during the spring. "I'm looking forward to this weekend," White said. "When there's somebody pushing you you'll do better." Last year, -White chased T.J Humphreys, then of Dollarway "I had one thing on my miiw last year--catch Humphreys,' White said. "This year, the desire wasn't really there to work out every day. I had to force myself to do it." "The lack of competition hurl Paul this year," said Louis McCollum. White's high schoo coach. "He never went into a meet this year that he knew he wouldn't win. He had to compete against the tape measure every week instead of against an individual." RECORD TOSS While's toss broke t h e state record of 65-SVi set by Karl Salb of Crossett in 1967. "If he had been throwing at the same time, you might have seen 67 feet instead of 65 feet," White said. White broke the record on his Final throw in the Meet of Champions. He said he worried so much about breaking the record that he slept little during the week preceding t h e meet. Salb won the Golden W e s t Relays in 1967 with a throw of 69-6 -- a record that still stands--but White said he was through chasing Salb. "Once I broke the stale record, it took a lot of pressure off." he said. "There's not any pressure on me this week to do anything but go out there and win." White hopes to top 67 at Sacramento and there are encouraging signs. He threw around 61 feet from the ring at Arkansas Tech during the season, but recently got off a toss of 64-10 from the same ring. White also has moved some weight equipment fr o m the high school gym to his home and has been concentrating on leg squats. "That has given me more lift," White said. "I can tell the difference." BASKETBALL HURTS Originally, White planned to pass hasketball his senior year, but the team needed him and he played. The decision cost White, McCollum said. "He started out with a goal of throwing 70 feet,' r McCollum said. "But, at that time, he was not planning on playing basketball," White had to forego much of his weight work because of bas- kebtall. Leg squats hampered his jumping ability. In addition, his weight dropped to 255. He r e c e n t l y reached 270 -- the weight he wanted. Neither McCollum nor White thought much of the record throw from a technique standpoint. In Little And Pee Wee Leagues Summer Baseball Continues Little and Pee Wes League I a c t i o n continued Thursday evening with a full slate of games on lap.
