    It is the time of year when the big “bull” redear sunfish move shallow to spawn, sending a shiver of excitement through the ranks of many Kentucky anglers.

    When the big redear sunfish move up to spawn, it produces some of the best fishing of the year. The ability of hefty redear sunfish to use their saucer-shaped bodies to pull against a rod is legendary. If this species grew to 10 pounds, it might be nearly impossible to land one.

  • Lady Bearcat lightning strikes...

    In a softball season defined by thurnderstorms, it was only fitting that lightning struck twice for Anderson County last Tuesday night.

The game had originally been scheduled to be played at Scott Monday night but wet field conditions prompted the schools to move the game to Anderson a night later.

    It was supposed to be a tuneup, but someone forgot to tell Madison Central.

    And Anderson County appeared to forget what had made the Lady Bearcats one of Kentucky’s Top 10 teams, according to the rankings nearly all season.

    Madison Central scored five times in the top of the 10th inning to upset the host Lady Bearcats, 7-3, Friday night.

    Madison Central improved to 11-8 while Anderson fell to 20-5 and lost for the third time in nine days.
