Fishing Report

One of the most helpless feelings I've ever felt was while sitting in a vehicle that had gone out of control. There was really nothing I could do but hope that I'd be able to walk away unharmed. Often while driving on the highway I see motorists towing trailers well over the speed limit for vehicles towing a trailer. Unfortunately, anyone with a valid driver's license can legally tow most trailers. This is evident each spring when boat ramps are held up by those who haven't learned how to back up their new trailer. They can ...

Fishing Report

For the 19th year in a row, I'm in Arizona to start the New Year. Being that I'm so close to the Mexican border, I decided to go across this year, not only to do a little shopping but to also dine at some of their local restaurants. If you've never crossed the border before, the line coming back across to the United States can be several hours long. What I didn't expect to see while waiting in line was a truck trailering a boat. The truck trailering the boat was sent to have a secondary ...
