EU-Manteca: It just had to be like this

When I scribed about my excitement of anticipating covering the "final" meeting between East Union and Manteca High's baseball teams back on April 29 I knew they'd meet up again.

Cover lunch, launch and call it even

It's that time of year again when I get plenty of calls or emails from friends and family who want to go fishing.

Get wet & dirty

Oftentimes you hear old timers lamenting about how "the fishing ain't as good as it used to be," or the hunting, the gold panning, etc. It sort of reminds me of Will Rogers's observation that "everybody complains about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it." Conservation of our outdoor resources, however, is a different story. You actually can make a difference. There are a host of organizations that do all sorts of projects improve our fishing, hunting and overall outdoor experience.

Cutback could help tournaments return to life

I'm guessing there are very few of us who haven't been affected by some type of cutback over the last few years.

Something’s fishy, and that’s good

I guess it's appropriate that last week's self-deprecating column, one in which I strung together some of my more human moments, was missing the first 200 words, and ended up making no sense.

Making the most of life’s experiences

I won't waste your time with a top list of anecdotes since Monday was my birthday, or break into a 'Best of', because authentic existence has little to do with embellishment-laced highlights. A life is a non-stop series in reactions. So for those wondering what the life of an outdoor columnist is really like, here's what has highlighted my journey to 30.

About orange-tailed rattlers

If you've read this column for any length of time you may have read that I catch rattlesnakes on a regular basis. I usually turn them into hatbands; sometimes I have them mounted as taxidermy specimens, I even make rattlesnake rugs as a wall mount. Occasionally I'll even eat a sackful of rattlers for dinner. While I am a big advocate of catch and release fishing, I do not practice catch and release rattler catching. My long-time outdoor companion Donald F, however is a much kinder and gentler person than I and regularly releases the snakes he catches.

Manteca Vs East Union II: Worth watching

Very seldom can I walk into the offices of The Manteca Bulletin and be excited about work – especially about a day that is 24 hours away. I mean, even though my gig is pretty sweet, the worries of today are usually more than enough to keep me occupied.

Opening day tactics

Here it is late April and the opening day of trout season is right around the corner. There's still a lot of snow up there in the mountains and when we get a sunny day it begins to melt. Streams can be running high and swift and your favorite fishing hole can be a raging torrent. How do you cope with such conditions? Here are a couple early season tips that I've discovered over the years that might help.
