The hot days of summer tend to make fishing slow. I look at summer bass fishing almost like winter time. Even though the water is warm and the metabolism of the fish is high, the fish don't go chase food all day.
Ron Courson has made a life helping others prepare for competition.
Congratulations to the city of Columbus. For the past five days, the Columbus-Lowndes Recreation Authority and Propst Park have played host to the Dizzy Dean 10-and-under South state baseball tournament.
Have you noticed trash on the sides of the road each morning when you go to work or in the afternoon when you return home? For all of you who enjoy our waterway each weekend boating, skiing, and fishing, do you notice the soda bottle floating or the plastic bag in the water?
Baitcasting reels have seen major changes throughout the years.
I just read another "horror story" of a close call involving anglers and life jackets. Last month at The Bassmaster Elite event at Lake Murray, professional angler James Niggemeyer came across an unmanned boat in the middle of the lake that was idling toward a man and small boy in the water. The little boy had a life jacket on but the father didn't.
STARKVILLE -- Hand shakes aren't enough for Vann Stuedeman. Ann Carr had an inkling about Stuedeman's enthusiasm and reputation for being a "people person," but she had no idea what was in store when she met her latest candidate for a job.
Timing is everything in life, especially college athletics. What is the right time to call a timeout to stop momentum? When is the best time to pull a starting pitcher late in a game? Who do you choose to take the final shot to win a game? For Mississippi State, the timing is right to look for a new softball coach.
Mississippi State men's basketball coach Rick Stansbury warned everyone Dee Bost wasn't going to be the panacea for what ails his team this season.
Well, Santa Claus has come and gone and in came the new year.
Everyone I have talked to lately is in shock over the cold weather we have been experiencing in our area. Guess what? The fish are feeling the same shock.
It's a familiar refrain: No margin for error. A year ago, the variation Mississippi State men's basketball coach Rick Stansbury used referred to the lack of front-court depth his Bulldogs had in support of Jarvis Varnado and the dearth of backcourt contributors off the bench.
The Green Wave roll confidence, execution, and talent into one big wave and challenge you to stay afloat for 48 minutes.
Lure selection this time of year is probably easier now than most anytime of the year. As long as it resembles a shad, the chances are good that it will produce some fish in the livewell. The most fun I have had this year has recently been on a lipless crankbait.
On this night, redshirt freshman LaDarius Perkins was a one-man wrecking crew, sprinting for 319 all-purpose yards. The total, which included two touchdown passes from Chris Relf, is the second-highest single-game mark in school history.
Ever since I was a young guy fishing in a flat-bottom boat in ponds and backwater areas of the river, I dreamed of fishing in the Bassmaster Classic.
During the Bass Fishing League regional competition last weekend, there was a boating accident that claimed the life of one of the anglers. There were several different tournaments being held on the same weekend one of the boats from one of the other tournaments collided with a BFL contestant's boat.
After featuring in Mississippi State's first three football games, backup quarterback Tyler Russell found himself in an unfamiliar position last Saturday.
Fall bass fishing is here. This is the time for all of you anglers that aren't getting ready for hunting season to start paying attention to the signs. The shad are beginning to school and water temperatures have begun dropping.
