Fishing Report

Many assume that I'm always catching fish. Even today, after years of experience, I still have days when I don't catch anything. I've learned that my chances of catching a fish are dramatically reduced or improved by a variety of factors. Time of year, time of day, and tide are my top three. Every species of fish is more active during certain times of the year than others. Learning which time that is is fairly easy with a little research. Bass for example make their way shallow to spawn in the spring. As a result, most anglers ...

2016 NHRA Toyota/Sonoma Nationals Brings Back Memories

It was 10 years ago when a young, local driver from Oakdale claimed the Funny Car title at the Toyota/Sonoma Nationals event. His name was Eric Medlen and he drove a team car for John Force Racing.

Fishing Report

Gone are the days when I used to fish through the summer heat. Call it what you want, "I call it being smart." Rarely have my fishing trips gone past noon this summer.
