Bluffton’s Third Fishing Derby
Launched at Buckeye Quarry
“Set the hook brother and reel this
one in!” The much anticipated super
fishing contest will be launched for
the third consecutive year at the
Buckeye Quarry, Bluffton, Ohio on
April 1.
As in previous years the fishing
derby is sponsored by the Bluffton
Community Sportsmen’s Club for the
pleasure of its 1,000 members.
Over 200 fish of all kinds—bass,
blue gills, channel catfish, crappies,
perch, pickerel—have been tagged
and released in the quarry for the
derby’ which opens next Monday and
continues until October 15.
Five hundred dollars in prizes have
been offered by the Bluffton Sports
men’s Club and merchants and firms
to the lucky anglers who can catch
the tagged fish..
To claim a prize, remove the metal
tag containing a number from the
gill cover of the fish and turn the
tag into the contest director Carl
Mumma, Mamma Electric Shop.
It is not necessary to show the
fish—-just the tag! The prizes to be
awarded are listed on the handbills,
newspaper ad and placards describ
ing the contest. Each tagged fish
has a sponsoring firm which will
furnish the prize.
The contest is open to any member
of the Bluffton Community Sports
men’s Club, all children under 16
years of age, and all members of
the armed forces. The latter two
groups do not need fishing licenses
or club memberships in order to fish
in the Buckeye and compete in the
contest.
All persons 18 years and older
must have a fishing license and all
persons 16 years and older must
belong to the Sportsmen’s Club be
fore they are permitted to fish in
the Buckeye quarry. The Sports
men’s Club has a fishing lease on the
Buckeye quarry.
Fishing rules and regulations as
set up by the Ohio Department of
Conservation must be observed by all
persons fishing not only in the Buck
eye, but in the Water Works and
other quarries also which are restock
ed by the Sportsmen’s Club.
Progress of the contest and awards
made will be announced weekly thru
this column in the Bluffton News.

of the meeting.
The program is planned in celebra
tion of the month of April which is
proclaimed by the governor of Ohio
as Conservation month.
Bass Fishing on Upsurge
Anglers report bass fishing has
been steadily improving the past few
days. In several instances bait fish
ermen have nearly snagged their
limit in local quarries. Crappies have
not yet started to hit to any marked
degree, but William Boyed of Rt. 7,
Lima, hooked three crappies ranging
from 9 to 14 inches at the Buckeye
last Thursday night. Boyed also
snagged a 14 inch bass. All were
taken on minnows.
George Swank has been having a
good streak of luck. Sunday even
ing he had 5 nice bass to his credit.
Although it was chilly and had start
ed to rain George was still making a
round of the Buckeye trying to hook
another bass which would give him
the limit for the day. Earlier in the
week George lost twe nice ones but
bagged a 12 inch basi ¥n his fly rod.
Ezra Basinger snkJ?Li a 12 and
14 inch bass last Friday and lost an
other at the Buckeye. Carl Mumma
caught two bass also at the same
quarry'. One of Carl’s measured 14
inches and the other 16^4.
R. V. Kirtland bagged a 11 inch
bass Sunday and earlier in the week
snagged two others. Channel cats
have started to hit at local quarries
with Bob Kohli hooking a half dozen
on one occasion, and Ray Banks of
Lima had 14 or 15 nice ones on his
stringer last Thursday. Link Hauen
stein also has at least 14 channels to
his credit last week.
The honors for the biggest fish
goes to our friend McDonald at Ada.
This old veteran has been catching
bass quite regularly at the Buckeye
this spring, but on Monday a week
ago really hooked a whopper that
breaks all records for several years.
McDinald was using a crowler on
a flyrod when the big lunker hit.
After quite a tussle he was able to
horse it ashore What a fish! The
bass weighed 6 lbs. 2 oz. and accord
ing to some reliable reports it mea
sured around 26 inches. To top it
off he bagged three other bass the
same afternoon. Who says there are
no fish in the Buckeye!
Delmar Adams from Kalida was
able to entice about a dozen blue
gills and crappies to strike his lure
at the Buckeye. So there is no doubt
