Fishing Report

One of the many things that I've learned over the years is to not assume that there aren't any dishonest people around the many marinas and businesses that I visit. One of the toughest lessons that I learned while out fishing was coming back to my boat's trailer that had been stripped of its axle and wheels. I'm not sure if it's changed over the years, but I remember leaving my things out in the open without worrying about someone stealing it, especially while at the lake. Those times have changed. I don't know ...

Tight Lines

Thanksgiving, as we know it in the United States has deep roots in the history of our culture. It was first celebrated by the Pilgrims in the Fall of 1621 so they could give thanks for surviving their first year in the new world. In 1789 President George Washington proclaimed a national day of thanks and in 1863 President Abe Lincoln first made Thanksgiving a National Holiday.

Fishing Report

If you would have asked me years ago what time of the year was my favorite time to fish, I would have said the spring. As much as I enjoy the spring, this time of year is starting to become just as enjoyable. Like the spring, the weather is still nice enough to be outside all day, and cool enough to keep the waterways clear of heavy boat traffic. No matter what season you fish, there's always something biting. The fall months are special though. Every fall, large schools of fish follow schools of baitfish through the Delta causing ...
