TOLEDO BEND AT"BOP Olt BAS8 TOURNEY LIST
Toledo Bend Reservoir on the Texas-Louisiana border was
the state’s top bass tournament lake in 1980, according to the
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department., ,.
The department compiled the result* of 884 bass tour-
naments held by 160 bass clubs at 15 reservoirs across the
state. Each lake was graded in five categories;, percent
fisherman success, average weight of bass caught, bass per
fisherman, pounds per fisherman and hours required to
catch a bass over six pounds.
Officials said the survey, which is the third of its kind, in-,
dicated the quality of tournament fishing in Texas has not
changed significantly since 1978.
Phil Durocher, who performed the analysis, said the data
also show there is no evidence that tournament fishing is, or
has been, detrimental to bass populations. “Contrary to
popular belief, the impact of tournament fiahing in Texas is
minimal compared to the total haryfftt," Durocher said. “In
I960 the estimated total harvest, was 5.3 million bass
weighing over seven million pounqL.U we assume that 25
percent of the tournaments were udupeg in our study, the
estimated harvest by tournament jisnpnpeq would only be
140,000 bass weighing 210,000 pOund^-pr abput three percent
of the total statewide harvest.”

BIG STRIPER MAY SET NEW STATE RECORD
A 38-pound, four-in|*ce striped bass, caught below
Mansfield (Lake TravisLDam March 21 apparently will set a
new state record for the species.
Harry Lamb of Austin was casting a six-inch-long swim-
ming lure from the bank when he hooked the fish and landed
it after a 25-minute battle.
Lamb said the fish struck his lure at 5:25 p.m. on the edge
of the swift current immediately below the dam. “He took out
most of my line, so when I looked down and saw my line run-
ning low I tried to apply more pressure," Lamb said.
Fortunately, Lamb was using 20-pound test line on surf
tackle and eventually was able to turn the fish in the current.
The fish will exceed the current 33-pound, 3*6-ounce record
striper by about five pounds if certified by the Texas Parks
and Wildlife Department. The current record was caught by
Louisianan James F. Kent at Toledo Bend Reservoir on Feb.
Lamb’s fish is the first record striper coming from any
lake other than Toledo Bend or Texoma since the fish were
introduced to the state in the late 1960’s. It actually was
caught from the upper end of Lake Austin, a narrow reser-
voir which winds through Austin’s west side.
Biologists said stripers have been stocked in most of the
reservoirs along the Colorado River “Highland Lakes”
chain, including Lake Austin. Each spring a number of large
stripers are caught below the dams where they concentrate
for the spawning run.
The earliest striper stocking in the Highland Lakes chain
was in Lake Travis in 1973. This is probaby one,of those
original fish, thus eight years old.
Bird lovers who enjoy
building nesting houses for
purple martins or other
songbirds may be surprised
to know that nesting boxes
built and placed correctly
will be utilized by the color-
ful wood ducks.
Texas Parks and Wildlife
Department wildlife bio-
logist Carl Frentress of
Athens said there are many
areas in Texas, especially in
the eastern half of the state,
where wood ducks will nest if
they find suitable quarters.
“Wood ducks usually nest
in hollow tree cavities
situated on or near water
where food is available,”
Frentress said. “But the pro-
blem is that many areas do
not have, or have lost, the
large trees necessary for
Nesting boxes can take the
place of hollow trees, he
said, but they must be built
to fairly stringent specifica-
tions and placed in areas
which offer adequate water
Dead Sea’s shore oily
In ancient times the Dead
Sea was called Lake Asphal-
tites because of the semi-
solid petroleum wastes that
washed up on its shores from
habitat to support the duck-
lings after they hatch.
Frentress said the effec-
tiveness of the boxes was il-
lustrated at a national
wildlife refuge in North
Dakota, where nesting box-
placement established a
breeding population of wood
ducks where none existed
before because of a lack of

will be utilized rapidly in the
