In my last two weekly columns I reminisced about my youthful urge to locate small, back in the boonies lakes that were seldom fished, as additional options other than fishing a hand full of more popular lakes day after day, and week after week. As mentioned, my era of exploration spanned the second half of the 1950s through the very early 1970s.

Fish Like a Girl
As a tournament angler, I am big on catch and release fishing. We do it at every tournament. We want all of the fish caught on any given day to go back into the water healthy and happy. That allows someone else to have the same fun catching them another day. (subscriber access)

The sport of fishing is comprised of numerous puzzle parts, one being, an angler never knows what might accidently end up on the end of their line. Sportspersons who are out looking and hoping for a specific species are often shocked or surprised what ends up in the landing net.
