  • A sidearm cast can give you a huge advantage over the wind. It “also makes a more delicate presentation,” explains Louis Cahill. Check out his advice on the technique in a recent post on Gink & Gasoline.
  • A group of miners began illegally dredging for gold this week in Idaho’s Salmon River, protesting EPA regulations that are in place to protect the habitat of endangered fish.
  • Currents and warming waters are causing semi-tropical fish such as yellowfin tuna, and dorado Mahi Mahi to be caught off San Diego’s coast, and may indicate an above average El Niño weather pattern for the coming year.
