The other day, my son, Bo, and I went out to sight in a new rifle scope.
The effect on water temperature and fish behavior is directly related.
Click. Click. Click.
I've learned over the years that a person could drive themselves crazy worrying about every little detail when it came to fishing.
I'm a seven last-casts type of guy.
In my last column, I told you that I might be moving to the local KOA, because I was going elk hunting on our 50th anniversary.
After last week's weather, many anglers have put away their equipment and will be staying close to the fireplace for the next few months.
My cousin got booted from the Brock Lesnar-Cain Velasquez title fight a few weeks back for trying to break up a girl-fight in the stands moments before the main event.
It seems like a lifetime ago that I coached football and basketball at the Manteca Boys and Girls Club. In those days, we not only coached to win but we coached to respect the game and our opponent.
This morning brought the first real cold snap of the year. For many anglers, the colder temperatures bring the fish closer to the surface. For others, fishing is only going to get tougher as their species of choice will most likely be hunkering down for the winter. Fishing the wintertime can be extremely tough and for the inpatient person, unbearable. When I think about fishing during the wintertime I immediately think of slowing down and downsizing my line. Unless I'm lucky enough to find an active school of fish the bites are going to be far and few and ...
By the time you read this column, Thanksgiving dinner will be just a memory evidenced by a bunch of leftovers in the fridge, and an extra notch let out in your belt.
Frightened or appalled by the prospect of walking up an escalator that dared to stop working, the lady stepped aside and allowed the guy with a frayed deltoid ligament on his left ankle and the other guy with a chewed up meniscus to hike up the stuck steps.
For almost five decades, I have been afflicted with Bear Fever.
Thanksgiving is next Thursday, and while some will be playing football or staying warm inside, I've kind of made it a tradition of mine to get out fishing for the early part of the day.
The fish took off with only a slight rhythmic list from left to right. The barb was stuck securely in its dorsal fin, which did little to stop his down-river run.
Danelle Bishop continues to win at the next level.
The 2014 local racing season is just around the corner and Stockton 99 Speedway has released its 2014 schedule. A total of 15 Saturday night events are slated for the historic quarter-mile paved oval that opened in 1947.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Joey Logano lined up directly behind Kevin Harvick and followed him nose-to-tail around the track and across the line for the final restart. He was stalking the leader, looking for what he knew would be his only chance to snatch the victory away from Harvick.
Last week, I wrote about conservation efforts to benefit Rocky Mountain Elk and a host of other animals. I didn't want to neglect the fishes however, hence today's column.
Don't let this current storm fool you. If anything, it's going to improve the fishing.
Today kicks off The 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic held at Lake Guntersville in Birmingham, Ala.
About 15 years ago my friend Joe Mangelos gave me a free ticket to attend a fund raising banquet for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. When I got to the dinner, I was feeling kind of guilty, so I bought some raffle tickets. Darned if I didn't win a brand new 30-06 rifle! I was hooked even though I've never been elk hunting, every year since I make it a point to attend the Elk Foundation Banquet.
It seems like overnight spring has come, and if I've ever had an itch to get out fishing it's right now.
SOCHI, Russia (AP) - The announcer in the Shayba Arena was trying to pump up the crowd between periods of yet another Olympic women's hockey mismatch, though her heart didn't really seem to be in it.
Quite often when it comes to sports, my opinions are in the minority.
This time of year is one of anticipation. The traditional winter hunting seasons have come and gone. If you are a big game hunter who is crazy enough to seek deer, elk, or bear, you will have either a freezer full of meat with which to feed your family, or a host of excuses as to how the critters out-witted you. The bass boats are covered and safely stored and the trout streams of summer are blanked with snow. It is at this time of year that cabin fever can strike you. While some folks laugh and pretend it isn ...
Here comes the rain, at least I hope so.
A lot of anglers are waiting for the weather to clear up before they go fishing.
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Down at the end of a hotel hallway, about 50 people gathered along with a dozen television cameras to record the thoughts of a running back who doesn't much like the idea of sharing his thoughts.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - There was never any shortage of people willing to tell Derrick Coleman what he couldn't do. If there's any consolation to being the latest of three deaf players to ever make it to the NFL, it was that: He didn't have to listen.
