Fishing Report

If you've never witnessed a lake being planted with trout, it's definitely a sight to see. The truck that carries the fish usually pulls up to a predetermined spot and either deploys a hose into the water or backs the truck right up to the water's edge. The driver then gets out, opens a valve at the rear or side of the truck, and releases all the fish into the lake. This of course, causes just about every angler in sight to gravitate towards where the fish are being released. One would think that the last thing ...

Boys Soccer Washed Out

With high winds and rain swirling in Oakdale, the Mustang soccer boys could not take the field. With a short week due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday, the boys attempted to take the field on Wednesday against Kimball. Earlier in the day, the junior varsity boys took the field and their game came to a close early as lighting was spotted in the area. Ultimately, that forced both the junior varsity and varsity boys soccer games to be postponed.

Fishing Report

It's been a while since I've been so excited to go fishing. There's been a lot that's got in the way of me being able to go. This past weekend I did the unthinkable, I loaned out my truck to a family member. Something I never did before, or thought that I would ever do. Now, I just hope that nobody ever asks to borrow my truck again. I must have been caught during a moment of weakness. I still can't believe I allowed anyone to use my truck. I got my truck back, but ...

Fishing Report

It's hard to believe that this time last year, many of us were hoping that we would have enough rain to finally end the drought. Fast forward to today, I'm wondering if this rain is ever going to stop. Weather is so unpredictable. Even today, with all the latest technology, I don't recall anyone last year predicting that we would have this amount of rain. Many experts in the field predicted the opposite. La Nina was supposed to proceed last year's El Nino, resulting in another drought. Like fishing, trying to make a prediction eventually humbles ...
