  • Stock up on inshore fishing gear now and be ready for spring fishing

    Winter is a great time to stock up on some of the essential inshore saltwater fishing gear you will need once the weather warms. One of the hardest markets for anglers to keep up in is the ever-changing world of fishing lures. It seems you can’t walk into Walmart or Bass Pro Shop today without being bewildered by the number and choices available to you.

    Fortunately, you have me to shift through the endless streams of sizes, scents and colors marketed to fishermen and give you advice on some lures that are as good at catching fish as catching your eye. 

  • The pumpkin bread event

    Did you ever notice that trouble comes in bunches? In a young struggling family, the washing machine will break and the transmission in the truck will fall out the week before Christmas. A middle-aged woman will need a root canal just when her mother is scheduled for a hip replacement.

  • Be it resolved that I am unresolved

    I am usually a decisive person. A classical “J” on the Myers Briggs indicator, I make and then check off lists of things I need to do should do and want to do. I am a happy camper when my list is complete and all deeds are done, but come New Year’s Day with its call for resolutions to be accomplished during the upcoming 12 months, I balk.
