Playoff Preview

2016 was a roller coaster ride for the Oakdale Mustangs varsity football team. It seems like just yesterday Oakdale went to Sonora to face their former league rivals, and came up short to the Wildcats, 27-13.

Fishing Report

For those of us who've been fishing a while, I'm sure we've all heard the term "turnover" used. Turnover can happen several times during the year but is most commonly discussed during the fall.

During the summer months the water on the surface becomes warm, rich in oxygen, but low in nutrients while the water down below becomes cooler, void of oxygen, and rich in nutrients. In the fall the upper layer eventually becomes cooler than the lower level at which time it sinks. The mixing of ...

Fishing Report

Recently I was both humbled and honored to be invited to fish a local tournament with someone that I introduced to the sport of bass fishing when he was 12 years old.
