  • Florida bass fishing is on fire

    The prespawn period for Florida largemouth bass can produce some of the most exciting fishing of the year, and 2011 has certainly started out exciting. Because bass tune into environmental triggers such as day length, lunar cycle and water temperature, timing of the actual spawn can vary. Generally, once water temperatures rise above 58 degrees, the bedding process begins and may continue until temperatures are in the mid to upper 70s.

  • Win No. 2 escapes Eagles in...

    Bronson coach Allen Strickland held his fore finger and thumb about a half inch apart and said, “We were that close.”
    They were.
    Well, at least 90 feet anyway, or 16 inches, depending on how one looks at it.
    Bronson, playing at home on a cool and breezy night, couldn’t ice its second win of the season, falling 9-4 against Hawthorne in nine innings
