Ask a Ranger: Why did the turtle cross the road?

To get to the other side. Can you believe it? But it’s true! Many of us see an increase in turtles crossing the road from late spring to mid-summer. The increase in turtle crossing during this time is due to turtles looking for prime real estate for nesting.

Just out of the money in BFL event

I wound up in 16th place in last Saturday’s Bass Fishing League event on Kerr Lake, finishing slightly ahead of a number of top anglers including a former Bassmasters Pro.

This catch is smoking hot

After nearly 32 years of marriage to my beautiful child bride and smoking hot wife Susan, I have finally found the woman of my dreams.

Lesson learned as another big one gets away

Well the trend continues. My co-anglers do great in tournaments and I finish just outside the money or don’t do well at all after I lose a big fish or two.

Ask a Ranger: Ins and outs of hosting at Kerr Lake

Here at Kerr Lake State Recreation Area we have a wonderful volunteer program by which members of our community can camp free for an entire month. This volunteer program is called the host program.

No jackpot, but good fishing at Carolina Angler’s event

Well Susan and I didn’t win the lottery. 

Heck, we didn’t match a single number. Oh well, who needs $590 million? And I also didn’t win any money bass fishing, but did have a great weekend competing in the Carolina Angler’s Team Trail Classic on Kerr Lake with Tyler Purcell. We teamed up to bring in decent limits on both Saturday and Sunday.

You can't win if you don't play

Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. And sometimes you should have won but you lose because you didn’t enter the tournament.
