Fishing Report

When I was growing up it wasn't "cool" to be known as the kid that liked to go fishing. It wasn't until I found other kids my age that liked to fish that it didn't feel strange having such a strong passion for fishing. I've had many friends over the years and those that have lasted the longest have been between friends who like to fish. I guess you can say that there's sort of a brotherhood amongst fishermen. Even now as an adult, it doesn't matter where I go, being around fishermen is ...

Mustangs Beat The Heat, Gauchos On Gridiron

Oakdale's home opener Friday night against El Capitan was a hot ticket.

Fishing Report

Boating accidents happen. Surprisingly, 80 percent of all boating fatality victims would have survived if they had been wearing a life jacket. Once an accident occurs, it is often too difficult, and usually too late, to don a life jacket. Imagine trying to put a seatbelt on while in the middle of a crash! Once you're ejected from the boat there's no guarantee that you will be conscious when your body comes to rest in the water. One of the most common complaints about lifejackets is that they're too bulky, or too hot, they now have all ...

Fishing Report

While driving home from Sacramento earlier in the week, my son reminded me of two of my favorite activities that fewer of our youth are participating in now more than ever. Tackle football has shown a big decline in participation over the past ten years for obvious reasons, unfortunately so has fishing. As someone who works with youth daily, I'm amazed at how many of them have never been fishing before. Unfortunately, a lot of kids nowadays would rather sit at home and play an online game than getting out and going fishing. The fishing industry has definitely taken ...
