Fishing Report

Fishing is the last thing that I've been thinking about lately while fighting off a cold. I'm not sure if it's a sign of getting older or not but the common cold seems to hit me harder every year. Just when I thought I was getting better, I decided to try and go back to work and was wishing I would have stayed home at the end of the day. I was reminded of a time when I thought it would be a wise choice to go fishing before I had fully recovered from a cold. Bad ...

Fishing Report

Last week I had the opportunity to get together with a few childhood friends for a day of sturgeon fishing. One of my friends, who is an avid fisherman, told me that when he went to purchase his sturgeon tag, he had to first purchase a fishing license. Thinking it was a mistake, he pulled his license out of his wallet and it read 2016. He couldn't believe that he was fishing all year long without a license. So, he ended up not only having to buy a sturgeon tag but a license as well. His new license was ...
