  • Meo in the prime of golf--at 92

    Like a putt rimming the hole, Joe Meo has come full circle when it comes to golf.

    Growing up in the 1920s in Brooklyn, he had heard about Bobby Jones—as famous in the sports world as Babe Ruth—but Meo played sandlot baseball and cared little about golfers.

    “I thought golf was a sissy game,” he said.

    Now Meo, who turned 92 May 5, watches and plays golf and is among the many who praise Tiger Woods—the Bobby Jones of this generation.

  • The undisputed best way to catch...

    For Southern inshore saltwater anglers, speckled trout can be a frustrating fish. For one thing, there is the speckled trout’s infamously fickle nature, which means specks tend to hit in runs that can start suddenly and end just as quickly. It also means trout will often strike a particular bait or lure one day (or one hour) and want something else the next.
