Fishing Report

The other day while driving home from work I saw a truck towing a trailer with a couple snowmobiles on it. I thought to myself, that's odd being the middle of summer. Then as I thought some more, I thought about my boat parked in my backyard with very few places to go anymore that have any water. Like a lot of you, I'm hoping for an early fall and lots of rain. If I've learned anything through writing this column, it's that our weather system seems to go through cycles. I'm hoping that this ...

Still Matters – #Stillmatters

Although technology has made several advancements, why does it seem as if some people have left their intelligence behind?

Knights Ferry News Week of August 27, 2014

Knights Ferry School got off to an interesting start - two days without school because of the water main break in town. The pipe was by the new bridge and the Community Service District helped dig up the pipe and replace it. County health officials put a boil your tap water before drinking in place for two days. All the town restaurants had to close until the water passed the health department's tests. By Friday all was back to normal.

Fishing Report

Fish attractants have been used in some form or another for many years. In the middle 1980s I can remember there being a big interest in fish attractants as several major tackle manufacturers added fish attractants to their product line. I can remember one specific brand that comes to mind "Bait mate," it was in a liquid form with a consistency that was similar to vegetable oil. One quick spray of this supposedly would create a feeding frenzy. Every major fishing show started to endorse the use of fish attractants and anglers followed accordingly. To add a little confusion manufacturers ...
