Fishing Report

I've got to confess that I've secretly been shopping around for bass boats. There's really only one brand that I would purchase. The problem I'm having is coming to terms with the price of a new bass boat. For the boat that I want, the cost could be upwards of $70,000 after taxes and licensing.

Fishing Report

I'm always surprised at how the seasons change. To someone who spends their days outside, I'm sure they've noticed a change in our weather indicating that fall was not too far away. To most of us, we rely on our calendars for this information and think of September as being the beginning of fall. Not me; daylight hours are usually my indicator of seasonal change. The less daylight hours, the cooler the nights become, resulting in cooler water temperatures which alarms the fish to start preparing for the winter months. As far as our local fishing, the ...
