Three-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Eric Holmes, of Escalon, grew up watching his father Steve Holmes compete against local legends such as Ken Boyd, David Philpott, Ron Strmiska and Harry Belletto at Stockton's 99 Speedway, so, naturally, the closure of the historic short-track at the end of the 2006 season was a very big disappointment to him.
I'll be honest, which in fishing is rare, but only for 547 more words.
LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. didn't exactly plan for it to happen this way. The thought of sitting in a jail cell for two months can't be a pleasant one, especially while the entourage enjoys life without him at the Big Boy house.
I was able to get out and enjoy some of the beautiful weather we've been having recently.
I'm an expert at losing fish.
I recall as a boy that our family would save for our summer vacations in the mountains by saving silver dollars all year. Whenever a silver dollar or "Cartwheel" would show up in the cash register of Dad's store, he would take a one dollar bill out of his wallet and replace the coin with it. The accumulated cartwheels would go into a canvas money bag saved for use on vacation. We would regularly fill up the tank on our jeep for three or four dollars!
I recently received a phone call from Bassmaster Magazine's "Buddy."
Despite the fact that the new Dallara IndyCar chassis looks somewhat strange – sort of like the bat mobile from the rear – the car is getting a thumbs up from both drivers and fans alike.
Though I started in early December, I feel completely confident and absolutely justified in thinking seriously about summer after this past week of fantastic weather.
Got an email from one of my readers the other day who told me how much he was enjoying my book, "Tight Lines, Observations of an Outdoor Philosopher".
Several years ago when the swim bait started to become real popular, I wrote about the baits becoming better than the anglers. As technology has far surpassed what I could ever imagine, I've been amazed at how it's changed the way anglers have fished. It seems like every year there's a new bait, technique, or piece of equipment that makes me wonder if catching more or bigger fish is now determined by who has the better equipment, instead of who's the better angler.
Russell Chatham wrote, "Fishing at its most rudimentary level is essentially solitary. Not only that, but its components, outside the particular baggage one brings to it, are entirely trustworthy. I mean, what creek ever teased you about your pimples; what breeze ever ridiculed you in front of your friends?"
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The hugs with his family took place on the clubhouse lawn, not the 18th green. That was occupied, and by this time there was nothing Phil Mickelson could do about it.
The older I get, the faster that time seems to fly. It seems like only yesterday that I was chasing my first bear in the woods near Hoopa. It's hard to believe that it's now been over 35 years ago. Last fall my son Donald and I were once again out in the woods running after bears. Without a doubt the best way to catch a bear is to use trained hounds. While it may sound like it's a simple matter to just shoot a bear once the hounds have treed him, nothing could be farther from ...
Some time ago I decided that one fishing pole wasn't enough. Before long I had more fishing poles than I could possibly keep track of.
It's the last week of school and Memorial Day weekend is also coming up, so expect the waterways to be crowded if you're ...
The freak show that Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor are talking about will almost surely never happen, and for that anyone who would even ...
Some of the old timers will tell you that the best way to teach someone how to swim is to push them right into the ...
"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."- Henry David Thoreau
There's an old saying that "one man's junk is another man's treasure."
The Manteca Little League Red Sox took advantage of six walks to put up 12 first-inning runs and never looked back in a 21-8 win ...
Over the years I have periodically reported on historic or collectors guns that have come up for auction.
Last week, I mentioned that I was going to be fishing for bass with a childhood friend.
Life is full of regrets.
Several years ago when I made the decision to fish for multiple species, I didn't realize it was going to be so difficult.
It took a little longer than I had originally planned, but I finally was able to fish Lake Pardee last weekend.
Last weekend a friend and I went fishing at Lake Amador.
April is the month that I get most excited about when thinking about going fishing.
