    An old saying among bass anglers declares they would rather catch one bass on a top-water lure than 10 on anything else.

    The shake-inducing strike of a huge black bass savaging a top-water lure at dawn is as addictive as free donuts in the break room at work. Once bitten by the top-water bug, it becomes part of your fishing arsenal for life.

    There are times when the eyes see, the ears hear but the brain is unable to put it all together to process.

    There are times like last Friday morning when I woke up, turned on the TV and learned of the horror in Dallas the night before.Five policemen had been gunned down as they worked to protect a protest about police actions in other cities.

  • Awareness changes but basics same

    To say baseball has changed is kind of like noting it’s been a while since the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.

    The Cubs seem to have their best shot in years in ending a drought of 107 years this year and the big reason is pitching. Lots of good pitching.

    But one statistic stands out when considering how pitching and an awareness of how the arm works has changed.

    Complete games. Once an indicator of a pitcher’s effectiveness, complete games at the major league level are almost a thing of the past.
