  Classic in Pittsburgh might be scant pickings

06:40 PM CDT on Saturday, July 16, 2005
By RAY SASSER / The Dallas Morning News

The Bassmaster Classic has been used as a showcase for highlighting host cities and the quality of their fishing waters, but the July 29-31 event could backfire on Pittsburgh.

Veteran pros such as Jay Yelas of Tyler say they caught few fish in the Pittsburgh area during practice sessions, and all the fish were small.

The Classic record for smallest three-day total for a winning angler occurred on the Ohio River in 1987. Arkansas angler George Cochran won with 14 fish that weighed 15 pounds, 5 ounces.

Weatherford bass pro Gary Klein got a last-minute reprieve from B.A.S.S. Klein, who barely missed the Classic cut, disputed how the tournament points were awarded at the Lake Wissota Bassmaster Elite 50 in Wisconsin. B.A.S.S. officials reviewed the issue and agreed with Klein. The popular veteran is qualified for the 2005 and 2006 Bassmaster Classic.

Phil Dill Boats has expansion plans

Phil Dill Boats has plans to build a 30,000-square-foot service department at its Lewisville location, 1520 North I-35. The added space will help Phil Dill Boats handle customers it inherited through the July 8 purchase of Barber Boats.

"The purchase gave us additional inventory that we think will help our company," said Phil Dill Jr. " Dill said his company will honor warranties and repair boats and engines purchased from Barber Boats.

Giant catfish proves fish surprises remain

The pending world record Mekong giant catfish netted by Thai fishermen recently is a pretty good example of what we don't know about the potential of fish that live in many portions of our world. The fish weighed 646 pounds, much larger than the existing world record of 124.5 pounds.

"It's amazing to think that giants like this still swim in some of the world's rivers," said researcher Zeb Hogan, who tried to convince the fishermen to release the huge fish. They ate it, instead. Fish are the primary source of protein for 73 million people who live along the Mekong River.
