10 Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tues., Aug. 27, 1974 FAYITTEVILLE. ARKANSAS iiiiiiiiiiiiUiiiiiniiiiiiiuiHiigiDiiiiiiiiiiDiininiiiiiiniiiiniiiiinrffliiitiiHi Aubrey Shepherd Farmingfon Jayce-es' Second Tournament The Farmington Jaycees had such a successful bass tournament in June that they liave decided to have another on September 1. ' The Karmington Jaycctlcs are getting into the act this time by selling sack lunches at the" lake side for $1.00. All proceds are to go for ' Jaycees civic projects. One of the most inlereslirrg additions for this time is the prize for the bass club weighing in the most fish. '. The top live men from each ' · club will be compared for scoring. In order to he eligi- · ble for the club prize, at least five club members must be present. ' Persons unaffilialed with any bass club will be - ' competing for prizes of cash or merchandise, as well as " trophies. Eleven cash prizes are to be awarded to individuals, including $25 for the day's biggest bass, $250 for the day's heaviest string of lip to 10 black bass, $125 for the second best string, $75 for the third best and $25 to each person placing from fourth through tenth. Prizes of merchandise are to be awarded to those placing in the second ten. Local merchants donate various outdoor items for this purpose. Records for the previous Farmington Jaycce Tournament include 12 pounds 13 ounces for the winning stringer and three pounds ' 13 ounces for the biggest bass. Gordon Davis set both ' these records in June 1974. With top water action ' reaching a peak on Beaver, it is predicted by many that these records will be broken this Sunday. Entry forms may be found in many local sporting goods departments, ' i n c l u d i n g Sears, Woolworth's, Wai Mart and Gib' son's. , Beaver Lake seems about 1 right for any type of bass f i s h i n g . Plastic worms fished deep are still productive, while top water plugging is paying off for those who work at it. Crank 1 baits running just below the schools of white and black bass are producing nice fish for some people. This ma}' be one of those tournaments in which good strings of bass are brought in by people using all sorts of methods. ARKANSAS IUVEK ' Several methods were reportedly productive for participants in the North Little Rock Jaycccs Bass Tournament this past Sunday at Burns Park on the Arkansas River. Big 0, ' Plastic worms. Hellbenders and other lures reportedly attracted fish for lucky anglers. Fayetteville's Gordon Mhonn and his son Roger took thirteenth place in that contest with seven black bass weighing H pounds. Gordon reported . t a k i n g '. bass of four pounds and three pounds on top water - lures and Big O. The Mhoons' stringer would have been heavy enough to take fifth place in the · previous week's contest out of Burns Park (Roger IVIhoon and Rob Carnes took third in that one), but the competition seems to have picked up on the river with some really fine stringers of fish coining in. Forty-two pounds took first place in this one. Only thirty-two pounds took first the week before. Apparently the river fishing is again approaching a good period. Earlier in the summer, Roger and Bob cairght some 56 pounds to win the Miller Downtown Classic on the s;imc waterway. North Little Rock Jaycees had some forty boats en; tered in their tourney but only 10 brought in fish. This shows how hard the Pittsburgh 3t. Louis Philaphia Montreal Mew York Chicago fishing really was. While a few people f i n d ' f i s h and do very well, the majority may go fishless. This also makes a good point for everyone who enters a fishing contest: always weigh in whatever legal catch you make, for on a particular day one small keeper may be worth a prize! Another good rule is never to give up until you reach the check in point. Your last cast of the day may produce the tournament's big bass, and you never can be sure whether a lunker or only a respectable keeper will be' needed to take big fish honors. While most fishermen would be content with a finish of thirteenth, this Saturday's fishing was somewhat f r u s t r a t i n g f o r Roger Mhoon, who has recently gotten into the habit of finishing very close to the top. Roger caught a three pound channel catfish on a Big 0, p as well a s - a white bass'of over two pounds. Such fish would count for him in a tournament such as the one planned for Oklahoma's Lake Tenkiller this October. North American Sports Services has set up a plan whereby four categories of fish will count in their big contest. This should make - things very interesting, if a bit confusing. . Pond fishing paid off for Bill Kennan this week.-iHe': visited John Eagle's rnoun-,; tain-top waterhole over near ' the Oklahoma line and took several nice bass on plastic Mister Tiwster grubs, and a certain secret lure. Pond fishing is usually good this . time of year, but the really big pond bass seem to be caught. in November, according to knowledgeable Northwest Arkansas pond bassmen. DUCKS Arkansas' 50-day duck season will be split this year. For the first lime Arkansas duck limits w i l l ' b e ' based on a point system. This system is subject to abuse, but it allows hunters to harvest a larger-than-usual share of (he available birds. The idea is, of course, to make hunting interesting enough to moll- vate plenty of hunters to buy a duck stamp. The proceeds of federal duck stamp sales go for purchase and management of wetlands for duck breeding. Without protected" wetlands, wild ducks in N o r t h America would become extinct. If hujilers stopped hunting, no stamps would be sold (well, a few bird-watchers might help out or a few stamp collectors) and no wetlands would be protected from drainirrg, and few ducks would reproduce, and the populations would rapidly decline. Ducks Unlimited supplements the efforts of the-U.S. government in duck management. The U.S. can protect only those wildfowl breeding grounds inside its borders. Ducks Unlimited purchases and leases wetlands in Canada to insure a large production of ducks and geese, as well as associated wildlife. An effort is presently underway to start a Northwest Arkansas chapter of DU. Beaver Lake has been a good stopover spot for ducks the last couple of years. The high water has allowed them to find flooded grass and timber to feed in. If the lake is not lowered too much before November 20, Arkansas hunters again should find ducks on Beaver. If so, they should remember that without the efforts of Ducks Unlimited over the past 30 years or so, tiuck populations would be much less than they pre- · sently are. aiiiiiraniBiDnnirainiiiMiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Professional Baseball By The Associated Press National League East W L Pel.
