(So.) Uppgf Qe» MolnM Thursday, August 29. 1957 «m w» •»* 1* •»«* FISHING I (Continued from page 1) folks have gone ,.all-out" with us on the Big Fish Contest, and we sure won't forget it. * « * Anenl friends made through this fish contest, 1 have cue to relate on the Jas. Heddon's Sons people, who make that good fishing stuff in Dowagiac, Mich., and are being good enough to award some of their nicest lures . to winners in this contest. This yarn concerns a Heddon vice-president. Mr Homer E. Circle. I got acquainted with Mr Circle by mail, except that his roples to my letters would be invariably long in getting to Algona. It appears that the main part of his job is just—GOING elSHING. Thus, when Mr Circle was off in Saskatchewan or down in Uruguay, for a spot of fishing, his secretary at Heddon's would answer my letters. At one point, Mr Circle, in between fishing wrote and said: "Don't fre ; too much about my secrcl;ir.y Clem, she just doesn't savvy thai Iowa 'kinfolk talk'." At 'any rate, ; everything worked out okay with Heddon's graciously sending on some of their latest and best lures foY the Big Fish Contest prize-winners, • • * I . This brings me to the, real f 11•• • let of this column, entailing ' ; some of the brief fishing activity I have been able to sandwich in auring p'ast weeks. I soil of hate " to relate this item, but I happen,- ed to drop a crack about it to - • Chet Williams, and he dared me to print it. (Chet, as you '. '.. know, is the instigator of a •• 'Perch Class' in our fish contest, and rumor has it that he is going to sweeten up that class by awarding a pair of stretchy socks • to John Spencer, Jr., the winner). While up North, I sandwiched ,! in a few brief tries at my fish* ' ing luck, nothing very important. ; ; I bought a can of nite crawlers, " ' rented a 'skiff and motor and set ! : out solo oh a strange lake. I tied a big skein of crawlers on the I' end of a plug, set the motor just • ' above stalling speed and head*,' ed out into the lake. Coasting - , along amid the shimmering waves, under a blue sky, I sud- 3' denly felt a smart tug at my «'i rod, stopped the motor and pro» • toeded to reel'in one of,the finest *' arid •" handsomest "1%-lb. „ I hiouth basses; I've seen/ -' ff- tflen • • retraced my course ,^an(i sure enough, another fine bass! Think'. ing that three such fish,.-when fried to a golden brown with a mess of hash brown potatoes would make a beautiful break,,' fast, in a few minutes I landed •» Number 3 Small-Mouth. I swung *' the rudder smartly in the direc- !»' tion of the dock, pulled up in « a flourish, and as I -was casually assembling my tackle, the dock- man looked down and inquired: "What are you going to do with those?" BrQther; I replied, they're going to make a real breakfast, 3 juicy small-mouth bass. The dockman locked down and said: "Most folks just hit SHEEPSHEAD with a club when they catch them and throw 'em back." That was my first acquaintance with Sheepshead, and I am willing to confess they fooled me— I thought they were small-mouth Bass! Just in case you, too, might be unfamiliar with this cpecies, I snapped a picture of a (ady fisherman at this same lake holding one — him. And then wonder of wonders, as 1 cast out again, this big Crappie's twin brother must have been out lonking for him — foi there? was another crashing strike. The result —the two tremendous Crappies shown in this photo here — Author and Crappies All in all, it's been a pretty fair summer of fishing—and reports are that September and October will be really 'good. So we'll be looking for reports from such trustworthy fishermen as Larson. Herbst, Ricklefs, Becker, Pearson. Skilling, Amundson, Buchanan, and the rest. Teachers From Swea City Back To Work Lady and Sheephead This whole incident sort of rocked me, so I took to the boat again, tied a "Fidget Feather" on my line and let 'er go. Wham! A giant Crappie hit it with the power of a sledge-harnmer. Even with a 3Wb. test line he gave quite a battle, but I finally boated Kossuth Has 12 4-H Boys, Fair Twelve 4»H boys will represent Kossuth County at the Iowa State Fair in Des MQJnes in the various 4-H club departments and contests this year.
