Quint-City Labor 's Day (Newspaper) - February 15, 1957, Prairie City, IowaAlong the outdoor trails Tveith Porky and Ponce Bass fishing Arkansas a Fyke the picture we re tunning Down a ways in the column today shows a. Couple typical Norfolk ark., fishermen with a couple typical Lunker Bass. The gent on the right has a 14-foot boat rigged up with every convenience you could imagine. It has Anchor control mounted by the Stern seat Gas cans mounted on rubber swivel seats 10 he motor to get him where he s going and a Little electric motor for trolling or casting. He has several Rod and reel combinations using them As conditions warrant. He gets his boat just off Shoreline and with the Little electric he sneaks along without making any commotion and this Guy really casts but the Good water. We watched him work a Shoreline Down there last year and what education it pays off too As he regularly sacks up bunkers like these he knows the water and he fishes where they Are. This Angler is one of the Best examples i be Ever seen of a Fisherman that makes a study of what he s trying to do and then does it right. Of course he s Only a five hour drive from Norfolk Lake and makes it Over quite frequently like As you can imagine. He s out at Daylight arid in at dark mostly because he just likes to be on the water his theory is that you can t catch Lunker Bass unless you have lure in the water and the More hours it s in the water the better your chances of connecting. Course make no mistake about it he has come in Many times like All of us have with nothing but he stays with it right on after supper into the night and sooner or later and he hangs a Good one. Thi two Bass in the picture for example were caught within ten minutes and less than 20 feet apart and they were the entire s Day s take. Who would t be smiling even if it took a week to get a pair like this. Boating facts studies indicate that boating is one of the safest participant sports.
