  • Weather improves, spring fishing...

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

    As I stated in my column last week, all our fishery needed was light winds and a little warm weather, and last week gave us just that.

    The near shore bite has improved with the arrival of Atlantic bonito and big chopper bluefish. Farther offshore, the Gulf Stream bite has picked up significantly as well. The telltale signs of spring are finally among us, and with spring break and Easter upon us it couldn’t have come at a better time.

  • Amen! Garcia surges to Masters...

    By Thomas Ryan Paul

    Up here in the Northeast Kingdom, Palm Sunday finds thick patches of unmelted "corn" snow and muddy roads around my house. Sap buckets hang from the maple trees, which won't leaf out for another three-four weeks. My cross-country skis stand next to my golf bag. Can't use either of them today. So today, after Palm Sunday Mass, there is only one thing to do: roast a chicken, mash potatoes and watch the final round of the Masters.
