Fishing Report

The other day while searching through YouTube videos, I came across a video titled "Angry Fisherman!" Curious to see more, I clicked on the video and wasn't all that entertained until I clicked on some of the other videos that were showing up. Apparently, it's become a thing to record angry home owners, police, and other fishermen arguing over who owns the water.

Fishing Report

There's a tree in my neighborhood that's been my springtime indicator for the past 20 years. It's an almond tree that I glance at every morning on my way to work, especially this time of year. Many old-time fishermen will tell you that you can tell when springtime fishing is here by the blossoming of the local almond trees. The one in my neighborhood has yet to blossom but it's close. I've learned over the years that if I was to wait for the weather to tell me when spring is here, I would have ...
