  • Near death experience

    Well, the big game is over.
    With all the anticipation leading up to the game, I'm almost sad to see it be over. Of course, the game I am referring to was the battle of the Bluegrass between Kentucky and Louisville. As we all know, the Wildcats pulled out the eight-point victory much to the pleasure of most likely the biggest Kentucky fan I know, Bobby Joe Farmer.

  • April Fools fishin'

    Our Mid-Kentucky Bass Anglers April Fool's Day Tournament on Green River was interesting.
    At our 8 a.m. launch, the weather was a little cooler than it's been and it was overcast. As the day progressed it got just plain nasty looking.
    A dark wall cloud moved in bringing a steady wind and some small rollers. It actually got to the point that John and I found an open spot at the state dock, pulled in under a roofed slip, tied off and waited to see what was going to happen.
