FAYtTTEVILt-I, ARKANSAS ' ~ 9 I ininilUllliDIM^ Fishing By AUBREY SHEPHERD TIMES Outdoor Writer y WEDINGTON Lake Lodge reports that fishing pressure is so light on the beautiful little Ozark National Forest w a t e r h o l e that accurate reports of the quality of the fishing are difficult to come by. Cliff Wheatley is nearly always able to take some nice fish from the lake, but then he makes his home there, Bass are hitting shallow- runnirrg crank baits and plastic worms a bit, with crappie catches being made on minnows. Bluegills and Redear bream are still catch able on crickets and worms. Only a few more weeks of easy bream fishing are likely to occur. Catfish are still being taken by trot- liiners. . FAYETTEVILLE L a k e fishing has been good, according to Everett Baker, lake concessionaire. Cat- fishing and crappie fishing have been good for a long time, with bass fishing picking up on single spins and p l a s t i c worms. Tuesday morning, Everett and a friend caught nine bass on single spins plus two crappie. They threw back some small fish. Don Bowling and his grandson caught 30 crappie on Tuesday. They , fished with jigs. Bill Weatherford and Don Johnson and Baker took between 40 and 50 nice crappie on Wednesday while using jigs.

J i m Sebourne and Virgil Cosby fished Wednesday and caught 10 crappie and two channel catfish. Grover Cochenour has been laying it on the catfish.

Marjorie Frields took a four- pound male rainbow on a Countdown Rapala. The river has been running high except on the weekends. The fishing Is great. The river has been super-saturated with fish by extremely heavy stocking, which means winter and spring fishing will be great. . BULL SHOALS Highway 125 Boat Dock says that black bass are still hitting Rebels, Redfins and Devil's Horses top water lures. Also, tandem spinner baits buzzed right on top are working on the black bass. Kentucky and small- mouth bass are hitting crayfish on rocky points in 18 to 20 feet of water. Night fishing is fair, and black twin spins fished slow and deep are about the only productive lures this week. Rocky points and deep timbered bluffs provide the best night fishing. Water surface temperature is 70 degrees and color is very good. This means it is not quite-perfectly clear. L a k e level is one-foot above power pool and falling. .

NOT MEANINGFUL "Comparative scores don't mean a thing. I can show you how we could have won the na- ;ional championship," - said Baylor Coach Grant Teaff. 'Each game is individual, based on different circumstances." Broyles said t h e fact that Baylor whipped Florida State 21-17 after trailing 17-0 at the half "would give them a great deal of confidence." He said the Bears would not get rattled should Arkansas get an early lead. Broyles said Baylor's game plan is very disciplined. "They're not jumping around on offense or defense," Broyles ay the Florida State game vhere Florida State was at- empting to break a 15-game osing streak. "I've had my back to the vail, but It's never been bent jver that far," he said. "But, he players kept.their poise and confidence." Baylor rallied on three touchdowns Beaird, ienior.

Beaird. wingback Phillip Kent and full- ack Pat McNeil, have helped the Bears establish a balanced attack. Baylor has not thrown less than 17 passes or more than 20 passes in a game this year. "Our offense ranked eighth in Southwest Conference history but that doesn't amount to a hill of beans," Teaff said. "We didn't win a conference game." Broyles said wide receiver leggie Craig, defensive tackle Charlie Brown and noscmun eotus Harris would miss the Baylor game. He also said that quarterback Scott Bull, half- ack Vaughn Lusby and corner- back Brad Thomas probably would miss the game. He said le was unsure about center Richard LaFargue. Defensive end Alan Walson injured a knee against TCU and is out for the ieason. Broyles said Randy Drake would replace LaFargue and that Mike Campbell would start at noseman. He said Kirkland Spirits Juggle Cagers ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Spiris of St. Louis signed one player and cut three Thursday in jringing their American Basketball League roster to 11.
