Getting wet to Golf Fore Fish

When fishing meets baseball
Jun 16, 2009
You gotta love TV fishing funnyman Dave Mercer’s amusing penchant for hyperbolic, and often self-deprecating, self-promotion. His latest pronouncement? That “history will be made” when he steps up to the mound on September 21 during the Blue...

The recession rocks Ranger
Jun 4, 2009
Oh dear—yet another recession casualty. Yesterday, U.S. boat giant Genmar Holdings Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, blaming a lack of credit for hamstringing its operations. Genmar is perhaps best known among anglers for its Ranger Boats, but...

How you can help Fish For Ever

The perfect hers-mine-ours scenario
May 18, 2009
I’m decidedly not a spa kind of person. But my wife, Jackie, is. Me, I’d much rather go fishing and spend my time outdoors than get pampered with lotions and steam and such. So when we were...

What the…?

We’re having fresh wild turkey tonight!

Well, I’m down one turkey load. I got my bird yesterday around 2:30 p.m., a nice, 16-pound jake with a 120-millimetre beard. I had been planning to hold out for a tom, but after a four-hour soaking...
