THE OHIO COUNTY HARTFORD, KENTUCKY, JANUARY 27 1972 Attention Jig Fishing One Of Best Ways To Catch Bass Hi out there, Well here I am all laid up in the Ohio County Hospital and the competition probably thinks W. S. Taylor & Sons, Inc. is temporarily out of business. There just ain't no way. Jig fishing is a method of taking fish in the dead of winter. Contrary to popular belief it is a scientific en- deavor, not one of strength and awk- wardness, as so many casters are prone to believe. It is the best method and often the only method for catching black bass when the lake waters are high and murky to muddy and when the weather is cold. It was devised nightcrawlers, sometimes as many as four, on the hook and dabbling this lure into the water alongside the lake's shore, fishermen were able to catch huge black bass which were lurking in this area, probably in search of food. In the colder water the bass were a bit lethargic and did not hit artificial lures with the vigor necessary to effect catches. But the tantalizing NOTICE A few subscribers to the Ohio County Times whose subscriptions expired Dec. 31, 1971, can still renew their sub- scription for $1. untill the end of this month. Continue to get the county's most outstanding and largest newspaper by taking advantage of this outstanding offer. This offer also helps the newspaper's effort to establish a year-end billing date for all subscribers.

Although I am temporarily out of business the businness at W.S.Taylor & Sons is rolling right along. My people are there from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m, to 12 noon on Saturday. The free cup of coffee is still there and the place is not short on conversation. At W.S.

They rigged long cane poles with strong line to which was tied a large, heavy hook and a cork kept in place by a fairly heavy sinker. By placing Help Needed For Society A project of the Ohio County Historical Society, that of compiling into record a listing of all cemeteries in Ohio County, needs assistance from residents in various com- munities, Mrs. Dorothy Gentry, president, said this week. Residents of the county who may have a record of family cemeteries are needed and the information should include all monumental in- scriptions. There are many small family cemeteries on farms and in wooded areas and information on these are also needed to make the compilation complete. The committee in charge includes Mrs. D. C. Perguson, Horse Branch, Wendell Allen, Rosine, Harry D. Tinsley, Route 3, Hartford, Mrs I.S. Ashby, Centertown, and John Black- burn, Fordsville. Persons having records of cemeteries may contact any member of the committee. Smokey's make up its mind to partake and will muster his energy and blast into the lure with full force. It is at this time that the fisherman blasts back in like manner and with one forceful motion hauls the bass out of the water and into the boat. Because the fisherman does not "play"the fish some insist that this is not the sporting way to catch a bass. But, they are wrong. If they would merely try the sport-- experience the cunning that is necessary to move the boat ever so quietly along the lake bank without spooking the bass while at the same time jigging the lure in the water close to the bank, the doubter would know full well the skill that is essential. Without such expertise, jigging will not yield fish. It's as simple as that. And if a fisherman thinks he can deftly acquire this know-how in a few trips to the lake he is badly mistaken. To become a good jig fisherman takes days of patient practice. If a fisherman has never had the thrill of jigging big fish, his best bet is to go on a fishing trip with an ex- perienced jig fisherman and observe first-hand how it's done. It's a lot easier that way and the thousands of little tricks necessary to make a good jig fisherman will be offered along the the teacher pulls out good catches and the novice looks on en- ABC's viou00,, Ends Training Always hold matches till cold.

He will be accompanied by several other university faculty and staff members. Mancil Vinson, director of alumni affairs at Murray State, said any graduate or former student living in the area is invited and urged to attend the informal get-together. He added that a special highlight of the meeting will be the presence of artist C. G.
