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.

Fishing Report

I don't know about you but I can't stand rats and mice, or any other type of rodent. When my son was younger he asked for a hamster for a short period of time, I'm so glad that that phase passed. The reason I bring this up is because recently I've had a few mice or rats make their way onto my yard. As I was sitting at my kitchen table while looking out into my yard I thought I saw something run by the tomato plant, sure enough it was a rat. The rat was ...
