Athlete Of The Week - Dustin VandenBosch

One of the closest races in the Oakdale Invitational on June 11 was a tight thriller in the 9-10 50 meter breast stroke, when Dustin VandenBosch of the Oakdale Gators out-touched the second place finisher by just five one hundredths of a second to win the event. He would go on to claim second in the 100 free, join a first place 100 free relay and second place 100 medley relay as well in a very successful event for the young swimmer.

Fishing Report

Last week while driving to a favorite camping spot of mine, I got behind a boat that was being towed by a small SUV. It wouldn't have been too bad if the boat being towed was small but the boat was a lot bigger than the SUV which is very dangerous. Just because a car or truck can pull a boat or trailer, doesn't mean that it's safe. In the event that they were to blow a tire or have to suddenly stop, there's no way they would be able to gain control of their trailer ...

Fishing Report

It seems like every year, as far back as I can remember, we've been in a drought. This one though is a little different. I've seen the water levels in some of our local lakes lower than I've ever seen them before. When I was a kid, this would be the prime time to scour the banks in search of fishing treasure. There are sure to be lures and other miscellaneous items that have been lost by anglers while fishing when the water levels were higher. If I only had a metal detector, who knows what can ...
