TIGHT LINES

I took a walk in the woods along the Stanislaus River the other day and ran into a small flock of wild turkeys. I have been spotting turkeys there as well as seeing them in the foothills on both sides of the Central Valley for about 20 years and wondered how widespread they were. In checking both online and with experts at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, I have determined that turkeys are actually quite plentiful in the golden state.

Fishing Report

Throughout the years there have been significant changes, improvements, and new inventions that have changed the way we fish. If you were to examine the basic tackle that's been used to catch fish for thousands of years, hook, line, and pole. Two of the three have had significant changes over the years, while the other hasn't changed much in 40,000 years when it was first carved out of bone. If you guessed the "hook," you're right. That's all about to change thanks to Trapper Tackles "Trapper Hook." Former Bassmaster Elite Pro, and local angler Vince ...

Catcher Kirk Sizzles In San Diego Showcase

Three years ago, then-freshman Bryce Kirk was named the Oakdale Mustangs starting catcher … for the varsity baseball team. Having to earn the respect of his upperclassmen teammates and a first year head coach in Nate Gregory, Kirk wasted little time and made a major impact on the team. Fast forward to today and Kirk is still the signal caller behind the plate on the varsity team as he will enter his final season as a Mustang next spring.

Fishing Report

I've been truck shopping lately. My current truck is 14 years old and has been a very good truck to me. I can remember my first time test driving it at the dealership. It was so much more of a truck than I thought I needed at the time. Since then, my son is now a teenager, my daughter was born, we purchased a travel trailer, and the need for a bigger truck seemed to increase every time I add miles to my current truck. It's pretty exciting and at the same time somewhat sobering. New trucks are ...
