The woods were black as tar and the sky awash with stars when I slipped into my hunting blind beneath gnarled oak trees on the edge of a pasture dripping with dew.
Stuff happens on big water. Boaters fall overboard. People do foolish things. Boats capsize in rough seas. The idea is living to tell about it rather than becoming a statistic, to make the right judgment call rather than panic.
We hadn't even wet a line, the sun still was high in the afternoon sky, and the day already had served up several weeks' worth of adventure.
At most South Florida boat shows, quiet, economical electric boats are a staple. But they have not been eagerly embraced by the region's attention-deficit-disordered, need-for-speed boaters.
On most spring days, Oklahoma's Grand Lake is abuzz with the sights and sounds of anglers using high-speed boats to take their baits to as much water as possible.
Whether you believe it's proof of God's guiding hand or the result of random combinations of chemicals, coevolution is an amazing phenomenon.
It was a landmark moment in Terry Vert's life, that spring day last year when she revisited the spot where she had lived a turkey hunter's worst nightmare.
In 1490, Leonardo da Vinci put an ear to a tube and stuck the tube into the water to listen for faraway ships. Today, the science of underwater acoustics has developed into a fine art called sonar.
Thankfully, the warm days of spring have arrived. With the beautiful weather recently, so beckons the call to go out on the water. As witnessed recently at the Smokin' the Sound boat races off of Biloxi, Miss., many of you also had your canine friends along for the boat ride. I saw everything from a tiny Chihuahua to the ever-popular Labrador retriever. To make sure everyone has a fun as well as safe experience out on the water, be sure to follow a few common sense guidelines.
In the macho world of high-powered bass fishing, you don't see many hot-pink lures.
