The racing wasn't just on the track, but also against the weather. The weather started out good until race day, when the winds, rain and hail came. The race was finally halted on Sunday, with the final rounds in every category being delayed until Monday, March 6.

Fishing Report

Something must give, how much longer before a fishing license is going to cost over a hundred dollars? My recent purchase of my annual fishing license cost me more than $60 this year. I did purchase a double rod stamp which added $14 to the cost. As much as I wanted to say no to the purchase of a double rod stamp, I knew that if I passed on it, there would be a time when I wished I would have purchased it. Curious, I did some research and found out that in 1980, a California resident could purchase an ...

Fishing Report

Thanks to my full moon reminder from specificfeeds.com, I don't have to guess when the next full moon is. Especially this time of year when the full moon has such a huge effect on the spawning cycle. Our next full moon will be on Sunday the 12th of March. With the temperatures we've been having lately, the bass are sure to be up shallow either spawning, or getting ready to spawn. The biggest challenge for anglers looking to fish for spawning bass is the water clarity and the water levels. Most places continue to be muddied up ...
