Catcher Kirk Sizzles In San Diego Showcase

Three years ago, then-freshman Bryce Kirk was named the Oakdale Mustangs starting catcher … for the varsity baseball team. Having to earn the respect of his upperclassmen teammates and a first year head coach in Nate Gregory, Kirk wasted little time and made a major impact on the team. Fast forward to today and Kirk is still the signal caller behind the plate on the varsity team as he will enter his final season as a Mustang next spring.

Fishing Report

I've been truck shopping lately. My current truck is 14 years old and has been a very good truck to me. I can remember my first time test driving it at the dealership. It was so much more of a truck than I thought I needed at the time. Since then, my son is now a teenager, my daughter was born, we purchased a travel trailer, and the need for a bigger truck seemed to increase every time I add miles to my current truck. It's pretty exciting and at the same time somewhat sobering. New trucks are ...

Fishing Report

Recently while fishing New Melones Lake all intentions were to go after the kokanee that were supposed to be biting. What ended up happening was that we came across a school of crappie that seemed to bite every time we trolled past them. The decision I had to make was to either abandon the area in pursuit of kokanee or stay there and change tactics to target crappie. I decided the latter for a variety of reasons but none more than the opportunity to catch crappie. I've caught them before but never in the numbers and sizes of the ...
