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.

SHACKLED NO MORE

No matter who ends up getting covered with the beautiful bouquet of roses after the 137th Kentucky Derby, the chances of the winning jockey-horse combination coming in at hefty odds seem to be pretty good.

Crowds to come as temps rise

It only takes a few consecutive days of 80-plus degree weather to send crowds of boaters towards our local waterways.

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.

Pondering the perfect pattern

I had just finished my fifth elk hair caddis pattern in a size 12, because anything smaller looks like a blender caddis, so until I am better, I stop there.

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.

Holmes denied 4th win at All-American Speedway

After doggedly pursuing pole-sitter Greg Pursley through the first 133 laps of last Saturday's Toyota/NAPA AutoCare 150 at Roseville's All-American Speedway, defending NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Eric Holmes of Escalon had his fourth career win at his home track within his grasp only to see it slip away in the final laps.

A carpy day of fishing

There was nothing particularly interesting or noteworthy about the creek my buddy Chris and I fished, and I do use the word "creek" very loosely, because from Google Earth this system looks like an infected wound lathered in mud as if someone actually believed that rubbing dirt on it would make it better.

WINNING IN LIFE

LATHROP – For some strange reason, the days of playing baseball simply for fun and to crack smiles have been replaced with $300 bats and Major League Baseball expectations as early as coach-pitch. That's probably why rolling into James Matas' free pitching clinic was so refreshing.

Will Power Captures Pole at Grand Prix of Long Beach

Getting around the rising cost of fuel

This morning on my way to work, I saw two bass boats filling up at the local gas station. I couldn't help to think what their costs were for the day. My bass boat holds 52 gallons of gas, and my truck holds 23 gallons. If I were to fill them both up, it would cost me around $300.

(Re)fund the trip of a lifetime

I read about Alaska a lot because as a fisherman, writer and subscriber of multiple fishing magazines, the state tends to gets at least a casual mentioning if not a full-grown piece of feature writing every month.
