«««m I1IH miii niin IIIIBIII limn 11 mini i imiiiiiiinniu JnniDggn " Fishing Report ·KEfflB By BILL KENNAN Despite a few scattered . showers and cooler temperatures fishing prospects for the area seem less promising than usual. The report from Hickory Creek marina indicates little . activity. Only Glen Essley has . .had any bassin' luck with four blacks running two and a half pounds. There was even a report of a seven pounder, but firmed. The problem isn't that there are no fish to be found, but the size of those that are caught. The Sprirvgdale Sport Shop reported fewer big bass catches, but the striper fishermen are going wild. Richard and John Allen of .,'Springdale reported stripers ·'weighing: 16%, 10, SVz and .. 9 pounds taken in the Lost Bridge area on a water dog. au.:) .ui japunpd Tommy Cooper wrestled in a 16% monster. Zeke Barker had the only bass catch reported with four ranging to 5Vi pounds. All these anglers are,from Springdale. The picture is a good deal brighter at Horseshoe Bend. Chick Tubbs of Rogers landed five pretty nice blacks on a Heddon Chugger while Larry Phillips of Fayetteville landed nine on a subsurface Rebel. The largest in Phillips' catch ran three pounds. Larry Smith of Rogers hauled in 10 blacks weighing up to three pounds. Smith had most success with worms. Dale Maggard of Springdale also had good luck catching five blacks on worms. Maggard's biggest fish weighed 514 pounds.. Keith Cearley of Pineville, Missouri reported, to Beaver Lake Sport Shop in Rogers, an 8% pound striper taken near Lost Bridge on a Hellbender. G e r a 1 Tate of Rogers captured his limit including a five pounder. Tate was fishing near Rocky Branch with a plastic worm. Robert Root of Tulsa won the weekly fishing contest at the Beaver Lake Sport Shop with a 7% pounder t a k e n on a · Rambo 'spinner. Archie Tate of Springdale had his limit weighing up to five pounds. Tale's catch came near Horseshoe Bend while using plastic 1 worms. The Wild Card Sports Shop report indicates that the bass reported there have been taken on spinner baits using a Mr. Twister tail. Crappie are hitting in about 8-10 feet of water while bream fishing is especially good on Lake Elmdale and Beaver. Reports are also encouraging from the Illinois River. Cat fishing seems to be improving there. Jerry Barnett, a broadcaster f o r Fayetteville's KNWA, hauled in a 16 pound striper while fishing the north end of Beaver. Jerry was trolling in water about 130 feet deep using a white magnum hellbender. ENCOURAGING NEWS Gordon Davis has some pretty encouraging news from Woolworth's sporting goods department. W. W. Warren of Springdale fished for two days, August fifth and sixth, out of Horseshoe Bend and returned with an enormous calch. The first day Warren hauled in 40 white bass and 10 blacks ranging from one to two and a half pounds. Then the second day the Springdale angler hauled in 30 whites and 10 more blacks ranging up to three pounds. Warren trotted out a topwater lure the first day and then used Hellraiser's and Boy Howdy's the second. Mike McHaney of Fayetteville joined the striper parade with a 12 pound four ouncer taken on a white Hellbender. Davis finds that the water is cooling down some and that should he bringing the fish closer to the top. Blacks should be in about 10 feet of water and that ought to en courage quite a bit of night fishing. BASS MASTERS TOURNEY Results 'of the Northwest Arkansas Bass Masters club tournament held ' at Wai- Eagle 'place Max Hogan and Freddy .Carnes in first place with 10 pounds 10 ounces of bass. Carnes also recorded the biggest bass of the event, a six pounder.Jack Perry and Tad Morgan were second with 10 pounds four ounces while Jim Black and John Lester finished third with nine pounds 10 ounces. Murray Lewis and Roger Stroh. produced '. seven' pounds eight ounces for fourth while Terry Clayton .and Jim Trappe finished fifth with four pounds 10 ounces. Twenty fishermen participated in the club event bringing in some 60 pounds of hass. · · KEARNEY FISHOUT Kearney electric will be sponsoring their annual fish- out Friday evening. It gives employes a chance to get to know each other a little better after business hours. Anyone interested in sponsoring a similar program might find it interesting to give either Roger Stroh or Harry Mossberger a call. SOME WORKING WEEK! Regular fishing reporter Aubrey Sheppard is off doing some very difficult research on fishing in Mexico. Aubrey will be basking in the sun, south of Ihe border, while fishing Lake Guerrero for four .day. Sunday's TIMES will carry the details, but before leaving Aubrey left this report. GETTING THE SCOOP S e v e r a l area fishermen have asked the fishing reporter to get the scoop on trips to some of the hot new fishing lakes in Mexico. In answer to these requests, some inquiries have been made and what appears to be 'an excellent yet inexpensive method of spending four days fishing in Mexico has been discovered. Bing Bennett, owner of Rod and Reel of Arkansas--a Little Rock sporting goods firm- offers an economy trip to L a k e Guerrerro. Leon McMoran, manager of Rod and Reel, organizes and supervises the trips in a Winnebago Motor Home -- everything furnished except intoxicating beverages. MEXICAN BASS Transportation, bass boats, guides, and super bass fishing- this is all offered for only $287.50, much less than most such operations cost. Those going on such trips need bring only their birth certificate and maybe their v o t e r registration, their favorite fishing tackle (with · some heavy line for brush worming),and extra clothes. The only other cost is for a license. This is called a "pnor boy" trip by Wanda McMoran. But the Winneba'go motor home is new and there is a new $4,000 bass boat among the fleet available to those who go on the trip. Those going on the trip are away six days -two days are spent on the road--two crew members drive around the clock from Little Rock to Cuidad Victoria. Four days are spent in nothing but fishing and enjoying the good American food taken along by Leon's crew. Normally the fishermen stay in camp and little contact is' made with Mexican life. However, if six or eight people reserve a whole trip for their party alone some variations can be made from the schedule, which is normally a no-nonsence full clay of fishing for four days in a row: A siesta during the heat of the day makes it possible to enjoy a great deal of fishing each day. And the fishing is reputedly marvelous. Of course several outdoor -shows seen in our area have showed the excellent Lake Guerrerro. Further information about the Mexican fishing trip may be obtained by writing Rod and Reel of Arkansas at 2202 Watt in Little Rock 72207. Those who can't wait for a Expansion Plan Being Built For 75 Season By BERT ROSENTAL AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- "We don't want to rush into expansion," said National League East Players Feel Like Underdogs Northwest' Xrkarisai TIMES, Friday, Aug. 9, 1974 FAYETTEVILLI, ARKANSAS Brewer, Delph Plan Converts President Chub Fecney, we want to be ready." As the first step toward getting ready, Feeney announced Thursday at the conclusion of baseball's summer meetings hat he had been instructed by he league to appoint a committee to prepare an expansion ' )lan for the league's study in ime for the winter meetings at ·Jew Orleans in early Decem- ier. Reportedly, expansion .will take place in time for the 1976 season, with New Orleans, Seattle, Toronto and Washing:on, D.C. being admitted -- the jrst two cities into the American League and the other two areas' into the National League. Baseball Commissioner Bow- Kuhn, American League President Lee MacPhail and Feeny all agreed ' that expansion was inevitable -- the majors have not expanded since 1869, a huge gap in comparison with other big sports -and that it will be done "in concert," instead of unilaterally as was done in the early 1960s. In 19G1, the American League admitted California, approved the move of the Washington t e a m to Minnesota and awarded a new franchise to Washington. The National League, however, waited a year before adding teams in New York and.Houston. Kuhn definitely ruled out expansion for 1975 and said, "Beyond that, who knows. We are ging to expand, without putting a timetable on it." MacPhail, in his first year as eague president, recently ex- Dressed the opinion that base- rail was not yet ready for expansion. He reaffirmed his position ' Thursday, explaining, 'Every time you expand, it takes time to catch up. I think we are catching up now (to the caliber of play before the last expansion, in 1969)." LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Ron Brewer and Marvin Delph will go after some new converts Saturday night. Brewer, of Fort Smith Norlh- side, and Delph, of Conway already have an admiration society throughout the state. Both are 6-foot-4 and. were the most highly sought players n the state.

Delph and Conway wound up 28-1. The AVO will be on the same team-- ie West--in the High School Mi-Star basketball game Salur- ay afternoon at the Coliseum. Each is high on the other. Delph on Brewer: "He is ery smooth with the ball. His noves are very quick, but he Tiakes them so smoothly it ooks like he is moving in slow motion. And he can jump like avid Thompson (All-American ram North Carolina State)." Brewer on Delph: "The thing hat impresses me about him is low high he can jump. And he las a soft touch with his shot.
