    King Features

    When Ryan Newman crossed the finish line at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, having won for the 15th time in his Sprint Cup career, he enjoyed a pleasing, but rare, overlap.
    Newman also started on the pole in the Lenox Industrial Tools 301. It was the 47th pole of Newman's career. Only nine drivers have ever won more. But it was only the fourth time Newman won after starting out front.

  • It’s the fishin’ that makes this...

    Hey, everybody, Hope all is well and you are all stayn’ as cool as ya’ can be. I’m having such a hard time right now with my identity.
    Well, usually I want it to be calm because my boat isn’t the best at handling rough weather — it’s just too flat. But lately I been praying for some wind so me and my guests won’t bake to death. So right now I’m kinda confusing myself.
    But all’s good. This weekend was a good one - very little rain threat and some wind to keep it cool. But not too much, so it was rough.

  • Water, electric don’t mix

        It is recommended that you have your dock and boat inspected periodically for bad wires and loose grounds. Any time a person is in the water around a dock or boat where there is AC power, electrical shock could occur.
        A boat plugged into shore power with a short on board is dangerous and the owner may not be aware of it. AC current may enter the bonding system if an AC ground becomes disconnected then electrical current can enter the water by way of a bonded thru hull fitting.

  • How to catch right bait to get...

    Well folks, from week to week I dig around in my back pocket to find a topic to cover in “this week’s article.” This week’s idea came from a picture a new client of mine took of me while I was catching bait. 

    So this week we will cover live baits and the fish you can target with those baits.

  • Bad weather means Captain gets...

     Hey folks, man it was a great week around the key great weather,  sunny skies, fish just jumping in the boat. They didn't seem to mind not one bit that it was very hot in the sky and kinda dang hot in the water.
