Monday, December 29, 2014: Vacation has me realizing how tired I had gotten in recent months. I slept in this a.m. until 10:10 a.m. I can’t recall ever sleeping that far in. Of course, I stayed up late last night – humming the words of Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz, “Around here we…

Oddly, I’ve only gotten a couple emails asking about the perfect gift for that angler in the family. I usually get a load of them. I think I…

UPDATE 5 pm ... Got into some schoolies ... Saturday, December 13, 2014

LATE-DAY UPDATE:  

Got into some schoolie bass at sunset.  Since it was my locale – and there wasn’t a surfcasting soul in sight – I can disclose that most of my action was at “tombstone” jetty, just south of the drive-on point at 34th Street in the Terrace. There’s one…
