Fishing Report

Several years ago when I made the decision to fish for multiple species, I didn't realize it was going to be so difficult. This past weekend I struggled to even get a bite while I watched other anglers catch fish around me, it was frustrating to say the least. I've never hired a fishing guide before but I'm really starting to consider it after my recent trip. There's only so much that I can learn from watching YouTube videos of anglers fishing lakes that I've never fished before. Even the videos of anglers fishing our ...

Hall Homers As Mustangs Sweep Lathrop

"Just keep fighting" – that was the message from Oakdale varsity baseball head coach Nate Gregory to his ball club before the game began. After dropping three straight Valley Oak League (VOL) games to start the season, the varsity Mustangs have now won three straight to get back into the hunt. This past week Oakdale swept the Lathrop Spartans in a home-and-home series, bringing the Mustangs league record back to 3-3.

Fishing Report

It took a little longer than I had originally planned but I finally was able to fish Lake Pardee last weekend. The trip was a last minute decision so I ended up making the trip by myself. Surprisingly, it rained the whole time I was driving to the lake and stopped raining as soon as I arrived. I expected the boat ramp to be busy but there was not a boat in site when I got there. I didn't have the whole lake to myself but boat traffic was definitely below average for this time of year. Unfortunately the ...
