Orphaned wildlife need no resuce

Concern for "orphaned" baby wildlife is simply human nature. Most people who come across a baby fawn, a young bird or a newborn rabbit will initially watch in amazement and then immediately wonder if the youngster is in need of help.

Mackerel should be headed our way

The water temperature is beginning to rise and the King and Spanish Mackerel should begin to migrate back to the South giving us a better opportunity for a good catch of mackerel off shore in a few weeks. The tides begin to improve and will run in the six- foot range for the first 12 days of April which means some good trout fishing. The shrimp is expected to move back into our waters around the beginning of May to the middle of June, which always improves the fishing in our area. And the Bass should be plentiful around July.
