BY KIM DEMORY Could it be that the car of the future will have Eagle Grove ties? If Neil Dencklau has it his way, it just might. Neil, the son of former Eagle Grove High School graduate Barb Dencklau, and grandson of Lavonne Keppers (current Eagle Grove resident), has been into the car advancement since he was a teenager. As a high school student, Neil was the team leader of his group who developed super mileage cars designed to reach over 125 miles per gallon. His team took first two years in a row in a Minnesota contest. When he graduated from high school in Minnetonka, Minn. and left for the University of Minnesota in St. Paul, he found his place on to a solar car team. The last two years he has served as a team leader. This year’s car took (named Daedalus) 30 team members from the College of Science and Engineering an estimated 30,000 hours to design and build a two-seat car that can travel at speeds up to 90 miles per hour. The amazing part is, it’s all powered by the sun. Nearly 400 solar cells (which in direct sunlight can produce 1300 watts) will provide the energy the vehicle needs to compete in an 1,800 mile

trip across the Australian outback this October. Fifteen members of the U of M team, including Neil, will compete in the 2013 World Solar Challenge in Australia taking place October 6 through October 13. The team will be competing in a new Cruiser Class where speed is not the goal, but rather function and serviceability. While the car boasts efficiency, it does not have the comfort of air conditioning. That means if it’s 100 degrees outside, temperatures inside the car could reach up to 115 degrees. Therefore, a two-person crew will shift every six hours during the race. One amenity of today’s cars that the racers will enjoy, however, is a car stereo. Something to keep them entertained during their travels. There will be a total of 10 teams competing in the Cruiser Class in Australia, but only two from the United States. What makes their car unique is that Neil’s team is the only one to build their own motor. A total of 45 teams will be traveling from around the world to compete in different categories of the World Solar challenge. Neil is studying mechanical engineering and will graduate this May. “We are very proud of his accomplishments,� said Barb.

Neil Dencklau is part of the team traveling to Australia with this futuristic-looking car they built from scratch

to compete in the 2013 World Solar Challenge at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul.

Dralle Involved in Guinness World Record Robert Dralle and his 1985 Chevy Silverado participated in the RFDTV record setting “World’s Largest Parade of Pickup Trucks� in Indianapolis on Saturday Aug 3rd. The event took place at the famed Indianapolis Speedway and the group of 386 Dodges, Chevys and Fords and more crossed the finish line with a new world record. Drivers drove their own pickup trucks, with production models dating back to as far as 1927. The Classic Trucks, which Robert’s Chevy missed by 2 years, were first on the starting line followed by several other classes. They lined up on the track two by two for the parade. The first set of trucks began the parade

and by they time they made the first complete lap and reached the back end of the second set of trucks, those trucks had begun, making the entire 2 Ÿ mile track full of pickups. They made a total of 2 complete laps around the track and on the second lap Robert was finally able to punch it down to a whooping 40 m.p.h before he had to put on the brakes. The last time around was a single file formation as the trucks exited the speedway. During the parade, the trucks were traveling about 5 m.p.h and no more than 10’ apart to ensure a continuous parade. The actual parade didn’t get started until around 2 p.m. as there was also a tractor show on the inside of the track. They were representatives from 38 states and every state East of the Rockies was represented The 1985 Chevy was purchased from the Vic Muhlenbruch family after he had passed away. The truck was in excellent condition and believed to only be driven in the summer. The truck was used by Dralle Plumbing and Heating for several years and made many trips to Marshalltown to pick up Lennox fur-

naces and air conditioners. It retired several years ago and that’s when Robert decided to have it fixed up and re-painted before it rusted out. Tom Ribble and Car Country helped restore the old Chevy as well as the new paint job. Robert was accompanied, on his world record event, by Richard Dralle of Parkersburg. It was definitely worth the trip and they both had a lot of fun driving around the Indianapolis Speedway, which was a first for both of them. RMG television networks reach 63 million homes both across the United States and internationally, focusing all programming on rural lifestyle and culture. RURAL RADIO is its newest venture, launched this year in the U.S. and Canada on SiriusXM radio. Last year, RMG broke the record for the largest parade of classic tractors, with 964 of them parading at the Nebraska State Fair. Gottsch stated the main reason his networks attempt these records is to bring together fans from everywhere to bond over a unique experience. “It was a great setting, with the Indy Car track and Guinness World Records,� Gottsch said. “What was really humbling was people from 31 states participated in this world record. We had every state east of the Rockies represented today, everybody came just to be part of this attempt. “

Iowa Department of Natural Resource weekly fishing report The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issues a weekly fishing report on Thursdays in an effort to provide the latest information heading into the weekend. The weekly fishing report is compiled from information gathered from local bait shops, angler creel surveys, and county and state parks staff. For current information, contact the district fisheries office at the phone number listed at the end of each district report. NORTHWEST Brushy Creek Lake Water clarity has improved at Brushy Creek. Bluegill fishing is decent in 15 to 20 feet of water. Walleye and crappie fishing have slowed down. Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake) Fishing remains the same as last week at Storm. Channel Catfish - Good: Anglers drift fishing with night crawlers have been doing well. White Bass - Fair: White bass can be caught pulling plugs, crankbaits, or casting white twisters. Walleye - Slow: Pulling plugs or shad raps continue to be the best producers. The dredge machine on Storm Lake is in operation. Stay clear of the dredge, booster pump, and pipeline that runs from the dredge to the east shore. North Twin Lake Water levels are about 3 to 4 inches below crest. Water clarity is poor. Fishing for most species is slow, except for catfish. Anglers have been doing well for channel catfish. Try night crawlers, stink bait, cut bait, etc. Black Hawk Lake Black Hawk Lake is approximately three inches below crest. Water clarity is good. Black Hawk Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fishery was renovated last fall. Although we have been restocking the lake with sport fish, there are not a lot of harvestable size fish in the lake yet. Browns Lake Anglers are catching catfish using shrimp at night. Little Sioux River (Linn Grove to Correctionville) Look for deep holes in the river and anglers should find catfish and they are biting good. Use night crawlers, stink bait, cut bait, chicken liver, or shrimp. For more information on lakes and rivers in the Black Hawk District contact the Black Hawk District Office at 712-657-2638. Big Spirit Lake Smallmouth Bass - Slow: Look around rock piles and weed lines for smallmouth with a combination being even better. Largemouth Bass - Slow: Fish have been found in a few different areas but there doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be a clear cut pattern. Pitching docks, cranking weed lines, and top-water early and late have all caught a few fish. Walleye - Slow: Fish seem to be scattered try weeds, rocks, and out in the basin some days are better than others. Shore fisher-

men have also been catching a few slots. West Okoboji Lake Bluegill - Fair: Look for bluegills in and around weeds, with open pockets and weed edges being the most productive. Live bait rigged on a slip bobber rig suspended just above the weeds has been good as well as jigging pilkies and small jigs. A few perch and yellow bass are also being picked up with this presentation. Smallmouth Bass - Slow: The smallies have been relating more so to deeper weed edges and drop offs. Largemouth Bass - Fair: Look for weed pockets or weed edges for largemouth. Lost Island Lake A few anglers are finding a few walleyes trolling spinners. A few white bass are also being found on the outside of the docks. Little Sioux River (state line to Linn Grove) The water is low and the fish are concentrated in deeper holes. Try a white twister tail for walleye and a worm on bottom should catch just about anything. For more information contact the Spirit Lake Hatchery at 712-3361840. NORTHEAST Volga Lake There is a green algae bloom on the lake reducing visibility. Channel Catfish - Fair: Catfish activity should increase with warmer temperatures. Try a worm or stinkbait near the bottom. Bluegill - Slow: Use a small jig tipped with a worm under a bobber. Fish should be hanging around brush piles. Largemouth Bass Good: Largemouth bass are hitting a jig tipped with a twistertail or worm. Crappie - Good: Fish are suspended over the deep water brush piles. Try using a jig tipped with imitation minnows. Yellow Perch - No Report: Lake Hendricks The lake is looking good this week. Water temperature is around 80 degrees. Channel Catfish - No Report: Try using night crawlers or stink baits fished under a bobber along the rockier shoreline. Bluegill - Slow: Bluegills have been difficult to catch but nice ones will take bait. Try using a hook tipped with a small chunk of worm fished under a bobber. Largemouth Bass - Good: Anglers have been catching largemouth bass using crankbaits and soft plastics casting from shore. Crappie Excellent: Anglers have been catching crappies in a variety of locations using small tube jigs or jigs tipped with twistertail. Lake Meyer Water clarity is about 1 to 1.5 feet. Fish seem to be biting better in the evening and closer to dark. Few people have been out in the heat. Northern Pike - No Report: Channel Catfish - Slow: Fish near submersed trees with a worm or cut bait on the bottom under a bobber. Bluegill - Slow: Try a piece of worm under a bobber around brush piles, off the jetty and dock. Anglers have been catching a few keepers every now and then. Largemouth Bass Fair: Anglers are catching bass from shore by tossing a jig tipped with plastic twistertail or a big chunk of nightcrawler. Crappie - Slow: Anglers continue to pick up a few sus-

pended in deeper water.

cessful using light colored jigs.

Upper Iowa River (above Decorah) Fish seem to be more active in the morning with action picking up again in the late afternoon. Sucker - Slow: Anglers are catching suckers on a hook tipped with a worm and fished along the bottom. Smallmouth Bass - Excellent: Anglers are using jigs tipped with a worm or darker colored twistertail with some success. Crankbaits have also been working. Walleye - Good: Anglers are having luck using dark colored jigs or a hook tipped with a worm or twister tails. Spinner baits have also been working.

Channel Catfish - Good: Catfish are taking stink baits and dead chubs. Smallmouth Bass - Good: Anglers are using a jig tipped with a twistertail. Smallies 14 inches plus are common. Crappie - Slow: Anglers have been finding crappies around brush piles. Walleye - Good: Anglers are using jigs tipped with a long nightcrawler or a twistertail. Decorah District Streams Sub-surface nymphs, wet flies and small streamers continue to be the most effective fly fishing patterns after the June floods. Terrestrials such as hoppers, crickets and ants have been good afternoon choices. There have recently been modest morning trico (#24) and evening Blue Wing Olive (#18-#20) hatches that have responded well to small dries on light tippet.

Upper Iowa River (below Decorah) Folks paddling the Upper Iowa River have been pleased with the river after flooding earlier this spring. Even though it changed in places, many holes were cleaned out and exposed gravel and cobble bottom have been producing nice fish. Sucker - No Report: Smallmouth Bass - Excellent: Anglers are using jigs tipped with a twistertail or worm. Walleye - Good: Anglers are having success with hair jigs, jigs tipped with long piece of worm, white spinner baits and smaller crankbaits. Yellow River Fishing out of a canoe or kayak is allowed without landowner permission. Wading or fishing from the bank requires landowner permission. Turkey River (above Clermont) Anglers are finding fish around downfalls and other structure in the water. Smallmouth Bass - Good: Anglers are using a jig tipped a worm with success. Also try a crawdad or a lure imitating crawdads. Walleye Good: Try along cut banks or around woody debris.

Lake Wapello Largemouth bass anglers should try rubber worms fished among the lily pads and spinnerbaits fished around the rock jetties and the dam. Use stinkbait for channel catfish off the fishing pier. Red Haw Lake Bluegill - Good: Use a chunk of nightcrawler on a small jig around the fishing jetties. Try a slip bobber above and chunk of nightcrawler in 4-8 feet of water. Largemouth Bass Good: Use rubber worms around the stake beds. Try spinnerbaits around the submerged structures.

Manchester District Streams Trout streams are in great condition and fish are actively feeding on prepared baits, spinners, jigs, and flies. Consider fishing late evenings for dry fly action and grasshopper patterns provide a good option for aggressive fish throughout the day 6DW6HSW

Hot weather and low flows have slowed fishing on area lakes and rivers. Fishing is still fair to good and it is likely that the bite will heat-up as the weather cools. Nightcrawlers are still the best overall bait at this time of year and it will remain that way until water temperatures drop. Consider a trip to a trout stream in northeast Iowa - trout streams are a great place to escape the summer heat and provide consistent fishing through late summer and fall.

Cedar River (Nashua to La Porte City) The Cedar is still providing a good mixed-bag this week, but catch rates have slowed with the recent heat wave.
